Snorkeling Deals in Austin
While most people spend the afternoon soaking up the sun beside Barton Springs, you dream of launching an underwater mission into its mysterious depths. Trade in your snorkel for scuba equipment at Scubaland Adventures, a West Anderson facility instructing newbies and pros alike since 1983. For $15, get your feet wet with a 90-minute Discover Scuba Diving class and learn how to wear equipment, move and breathe underwater, and the basic skills and safety rules before committing to a certification course (a $30 value). For those a little more water-logged, pay $37 for a 90-minute scuba refresher course and review key skills with a PADI dive professional (a $75 value). Both subaqueous sessions include use of a mask, snorkel, fins, buoyancy compensator, and breathing regulator, allowing you to get the expert experience for a beginner's buck. Want more?
