$19 for a Four-Hour Discover Scuba Class ($40 Value)

The Discover Scuba class starts with two hours of classroom familiarization, during which a dive instructor reviews equipment training and basic safety concepts. Afterward, the group heads over to the Arundel Olympic Swim Center where students learn how to assemble their equipment and put it on properly. Once suited up, students begin diving in shallow water and learn how to use equipment and swim beneath the surface. All equipment is provided; students only need to bring a towel and bathing suit.

Chesapeake Underwater Sports

Chesapeake Underwater Sports founder Mike Nieman has spent the majority of his life in or around water. As a child, many of his relatives worked Chesapeake Bay as watermen. In 1972, Mike began diving for the U.S. Air Force, and after his service, became a merchant seaman. During those years, and through all those experiences, Mike kept his eye on one dream: opening a dive shop of his own.

Mike did just that in 1987. Today, having been involved in the training of more than 2,000 divers, he continues to promote the sport–or, in his case, lifestyle–of diving through instruction. At his shop, Mike and his team of NAUI instructors provide education ranging from basic courses all the way up to instructor qualification programs. They also assist clients in planning exotic diving trips, and maintain an expansive stock of equipment and accessories.
