What You'll Get
Somewhere far below sea level, the most fashionable critters in the sub-surface world are gracefully strutting their stuff in form-fitting wetsuits with foot-flattering flippers. Enter the coveted underwater runways of exploration with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a two-to-three-hour introductory Discover Scuba Diving lesson from House of Scuba, a $100 value. Get your dolphin on at the Wave House facility. An appointment is required, and divers must be at least 10 years old to participate.
The Discover Scuba Diving class will outfit freshly finned divers with all the properly sized and fitted equipment necessary to dive and thrive under the sea. After comprehensive safety preparation and lessons in the function of each tiny piece of equipment such as the regulator, pressure gauge, and spear gun, you'll plunge into the pool. Under the careful, encouraging supervision of the resident dive master, you'll practice basic maneuvers, breathing techniques, and shark-boxing skills. Starting in the shallows, students will get comfortable with newly sprouted mechanical gills before venturing into deeper waters for more free-form exploration.
The small class size of four to eight participants ensures each fish in the school will receive highly personalized attention. Certified and insured divers will guide newcomers in an informative yet relaxed environment. Though the class won't certify you to dive alone, it might finally put to rest a persistent fear of bathtubs and really big puddles. Call ahead to schedule a class time.
