What You'll Get
Before scuba divers were respected as legitimate adventurers, they were widely viewed as aquatic peasants, gathering seaweed and wrestling with bubbles for the amusement of haughty hang gliders. Commemorate the advances of flippered excursionists with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a Discover Scuba class at Wet Set Scuba in Stockbridge (a $45 value). All scuba gear is included, but participants are expected to bring a bathing suit and towel. Liability and medical waivers are required.
The experienced subaquatic explorers at Wet Set Scuba guide students in the undersea art of scuba diving within a fully functional facility. Training includes a slide-show presentation and a short poolside briefing that covers the basics of traversing watery depths scuba-style, including how to breathe properly and how to juggle angry blowfish. After suiting up into gear and equipment, students will take to a heated indoor pool for a 20- to 30-minute mock scuba experience. Novice oxygen-tank wielders practice their skills in up to 12 feet of water, preparing them for future undersea expeditions or subaqueous renditions of Citizen Kane.
