Groupon: Scuba diving is the only way left to find hidden treasure, befriend a nautical skeleton, or strap a huge tank to yourself. Explore the possibilities with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
$15 for a Discover Scuba introductory diving course (a $40 value)
$149 for a PADI open-water scuba-diving certification course (a $300 value)
During the one-day introductory session, divers learn the basics of scuba equipment and safety in a heated pool as seasoned instructors look on. Choose from one of the following class dates: June 15, June 16, August 17, August 18, October 19, October 20, December 21, or December 22.
Broken down into three parts, the open-water course begins with registration and dedicated consumption of an open-water manual and DVD (not included), preparing soon-to-be-divers for a sequence of quizzes followed by a final exam. Five confined-water sessions get students acquainted with the equipment before they make four open-water dives in Gilboa Quarry, where they may encounter a paddlefish or sunken Grumman airplane. After achieving this feat, divers receive a certification card, which is recognized worldwide and enables dives in far-flung locales. Classes are held June 15, June 16, August 17, August 18, October 19, October 20, December 21, or December 22.
