The instructors at Enfield Scuba and Watersports LLC stick with their students, guiding them through the scuba curriculum from the first day of class to their first dive in local waters or exotic destinations. The company’s classes accommodate guests with diverse interests and all levels of experience. Discover Scuba courses let first-time divers practice breathing underwater in a swimming pool, whereas PADI lessons prepare groups to earn their open-water certifications. Specialty classes teach niche scuba techniques and topics, such as how to dive safely at night or how to capture images of aquatic wildlife without having to trap them in a glass cube first.
The staff also organizes group travel, leading trips to Grand Cayman island, Australia, and the Bahamas in pursuit of colorful reef dives. They also sell, rent, and service scuba equipment.

The staffers at The Landlocked Dog don't put sugar into dogs’ birthday cakes. To cater to doggy palates, they only use all-natural ingredients such as bananas, honey, carrots, and peanut butter, though they can still spell out the name of the birthday pooch in icing. They also handcraft treats for their store's brand, Sophie's Seabiscuits, shaping delectable morsels into hearts and ladybugs. They concoct seasonal bites for the treat-of-the-month club, which gives pups two half-pound bags of incentive to do their owner’s laundry.
Their dedication to wholesome pet care extends beyond gustatory rewards, however. The boutique stocks fashionable collars, leashes, and grooming products tailored toward specific ailments, including odor and itchiness. Their selection of calming music—composed specifically to put dogs at ease—fosters peaceful car rides, in which pups aren't compulsively changing the radio station. At doggy daycare, small packs can frolic about the cozy and comforting setting while their owners check in via webcam.
