Similar to tickling a bear without losing an arm, the art of breathing underwater requires years of practice and dedication. Introduce your lungs to aqueous awareness with today’s Groupon: for $28, you get a three-hour Discover Scuba class (a $60 value) at Wilson Diving on Old Island Highway.
A retired Canadian Navy clearance diver, Wilson Diving's Doug Wilson uses his 38 years of underwater experience to help students reach a deeper diving level. The three-hour Discover Scuba experience begins with an instructional video on scuba basics, equipment explanation, octopus-wrestling theory, and diving fundamentals. Pupils strap into provided tanks, flippers, goggles, and other gear before plunging into nearby Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre's indoor pool for a confined water dive. Daring divers must come armed ready with their own bathing suits, towels, and ability to pronounce Cousteau.
