Until scuba gear was invented, mankind's only hope for summer fun involved competitive sunburning and watching flowers die. Make the outdoors great with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $125 for an open-water PADI certification course (a $275 value)
- $87 for a confined-water scuba-diving course (a $175 value)
The open-water course includes four open-water dives at the calm waters at Chatfield or Aurora Reservoir. At the end of the hands-on instruction, students receive their PADI certification, allowing them free rein over all oceans and seas.
The confined-water course kicks off with an in-class segment on the basics of safe diving, taught by a certified instructor. Within 90 minutes, students dive into the pool to train for their open-water excursion. Courses are semiprivate and include no more than six students.
This Groupon does not include all the required gear. Students are responsible for the student kit ($85 to own; includes manual, dive tables, and a log book) as well as BCDs, wetsuits, masks, and fins. Customers can rent a package that includes the wetsuit, BCD, dive computer, tank, and regulator for $70.
