  • Scuba Hut of Maryland
    The SSI-certified dive-masters at Scuba Hut of Maryland drill amateur amphibians in proper subaquatic conduct with introductory and open-water scuba classes. Solo swimmers and pairs can report to the Try Scuba class for a run-down on flipper fundamentals, in which teachers outfit figures with diving equipment and all other necessary materials. Pupils then spread their maritime wings inside a pool, acclimating to their scuba gear as they navigate both the shallow and deep ends, making sure to avoid crashing into chlorine-water manatees.

  • Atlantic Edge Dive Center
    Atlantic Edge Dive Center's dive-masters might technically be classified as land mammals, but they spend enough time under water to earn the honorary title of amphibian. They spend days and nights teaching and leading dives, whether they're arming curious beginners with basic skills in one of their on-site swimming pools, or conducting open water certification tests off the coast. They go beyond simply certifying students for adventure: they provide rescue diving, dive master, and instructor training as well. Their passion for the aquatic pastime draws them to all kinds of watery outposts. They lead excursions to the Florida keys to help rehabilitate the coral reefs surrounding the islands, and dive into the relatively calm waters of the tanks in the Baltimore National Aquarium, where they have a chance to see 53 species of fish feed in the secret underwater cafeteria.

  • 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.

  • Underwater Playground
    Underwater Playground submerges aspirant deep-sea divers, pruned snorkelers, and strident swimmers in a waterlogged array of parties, lessons, and aquatic aerobics. Eschew dangerous, unsanctioned gill-insertion procedures with a Try Scuba session, a beginners' course laying out the basics of subaqueous submersion. After each Cousteau-in-training has suited up with professional diving equipment, a Scuba Schools International (SSI) dive professional leads a two- to three-hour lesson at Underwater Playground's heated, saltwater pool before participants make their first tile-scouring dive in search of priceless treasures and wayward swim trunks.
