ZZ Underwater World - Fairview Area: Scuba-Diving Lessons at ZZ Underwater World (Up to 60% Off). Three Options Available.

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 to ZZ Underwater World. Choose from the following options:

  • For $10, you get an introductory Try Scuba class (a $25 value).
  • For $25, you get a Scuba Update class (a $50 value).
  • For $99, you get an Open-Water-Diver scuba referral package (a $225 value). The package includes:
  • Two academic review sessions
  • Six pool sessions
  • Consultation and referral form for open-water dives at a location of the student’s choice

Since 1978, ZZ Underwater World’s certified instructors have guided swimmers toward scuba proficiency with introductory lessons and hands-on open-water-dive tutorials. During a two-hour Try Scuba class, greenhorns learn about diving equipment such as the underwater-breathing apparatus necessary for any scuba excursion or voyage to unplug the drain of an especially deep bathtub. Confined in safe waters, participants can practice skills such as clearing water from the face mask, equalizing increasing water pressure, and preventing swimsuit bubbles from forcing bottoms toward the surface. Scuba Update sessions refresh students’ scuba skills and reacquaint them with their equipment while teaching them new techniques.

Alternatively, pursue the open water through the Open Water Diver scuba referral package, which leads students through lessons in the classroom and pool before turning them loose to explore the aqueous environs of their choice and compete in breath-holding contests with arrogant octopuses. Instructors supplement self-study with small-group review sessions and lead explorers into the pool to master free-flow regulator skills and gain further control over underwater motion. Then, an instructor will help to identify an appropriate dive location based on students’ desires, travel plans, and tolerance for eels and equip them with the necessary certification forms to complete five open-water dives on their own. Open-water students must provide their own mask, snorkel, fins, belt, and boots, which can be purchased from ZZ Underwater World’s equipment shop.

ZZ Underwater World

For more than 30 years, ZZ Underwater World has initiated swimmers into the world of scuba diving. Their year-round classes have taught people to safely plumb the depths of the Earth's largest seas, and their instructors are both SSI- and PADI–certified, rendering them able to certify their students and lead them on any level of dive from snorkeling to deep scuba. ZZ Underwater World's onsite shop sells snorkels and flippers among other gear from a wide range of brands, useful for people who thought Waterworld was a prophecy and are stocking up. The staff also hosts scuba vacations, taking troupes of divers to explore the wrecks of the Great Lakes or world-class destinations such as Belize or Fiji.
