You might be thinking about all the things you can do at the beach. And although there isn't one here in the desert, there's an aquarium that lets you go diving in Arizona. It comes pretty darn close to being at the ocean in real life. 

Throughout the year, the Odysea Aquarium allows its guests to get up-close and personal with beautiful aquatic life. Their SeaTrek Underwater Helmet Diving will make you feel like you're freediving with the fishies (besides the massive helmet on your head).

You and your friends can enjoy this hour-long experience for only $59.95; it's currently on sale for a limited time. 

Narcity has reached out to Odysea and has confirmed there is no end date for the sale as of yet. 

You'll also have to purchase a general admission ticket for $34.95 for a total of $94.90 plus tax per person. Maybe you can drop some hints to your boo that this is one of the things you want for Valentine's Day.

If this isn't major couple goals, then we don't know what is. 

Before you can start your underwater excursion, you'll need to bring along a bathing suit. It'll be worn under the wetsuit and helmet that the aquarium will provide. This gear is included in your ticket and will have to be returned after your dive. 

After some safety instructions and tips, the real fun will begin. You'll descend down a ladder eight feet into the water and walk a short path before encountering the amazing aquatic life. 

Some of the creatures you might see include stingrays, colorful fishes from the Indo-Pacific, and even a shark. There will be a certified instructor with you every step of the way and no prior scuba experience is required (woohoo). 

If you're basically a fish then this dive is for you. Bring a pal along and have them snap some pictures, it'll be an experience to remember.
