The big heat gripping Southern California leaves me daydreaming about big ocean adventures, like this one in Honolulu. It's described as an underwater scooter and snorkeling experience in Maunalua Bay, where you can see fish and sea turtles up close. For a limited time, the excursion is on sale for $99 per person, courtesy of Travelzoo.
The deal: The Travelzoo discount cuts the cost of this two-hour excursion in half. As always, you purchase a voucher that can be redeemed with the dive company Island Water Sports based in Honolulu. Participants must be at least 4 feet tall and 10 years old.
The $99 event includes a ride on a dive boat, a 20-minute scooter ride and an hour and a half spent watching sea turtles. No dive experience is necessary, according to the Island Water Sports website.
When: Travelzoo coupons may be bought and redeemed through Jan. 17, with some blackout dates. The deal also is subject to availability.
Details: The "underwater scooters" or "eco-scooters" look a little like submersible Jet Skis. There's no learning curve or certification to worry about.
