  • LDC Adventure Outfitters
    For 30 years, LDC Adventure Outfitters' instructors have been leading scuba-diving courses and organizing dive-boat trips for beginners and seasoned divers alike. But their expertise around the water extends beyond scuba diving. They also schedule snorkeling, swimming, and lifeguarding lessons, all of which are required if you want a shot at working at an underwater civilization's pool.

  • Chesapeake Bay Diving Center
    The Chesapeake Bay Diving Center has been anchored in the same location since 1986, where it continues to offer lessons to un-gilled recreational and commercial divers on how to properly breathe underwater using self-contained apparatuses. After strapping into the included equipment, an experienced diving instructor will teach students still adjusting to life in their underwater condominiums the basics of breathing through a regulator, how to clear water from their masks, and the trick to adjusting the pressure buildup during descents. Afterwards, guests will be set free to explore the depths of a swimming pool, where they will experience the weightless sensation of undersea exploration first experienced by our ancestors, the mermaids.

  • Sport Factory Scuba
    Sport Factory Scuba outfits underwater explorers and land-based competitors with equipment and training. PADI-certified instructors lead students on their first excursions into local pools and open water destinations, while the dive center outfits then with fins, masks, regulators, and waterproof cotton candy. Softball and baseball teams step into the mesh walls of the facility’s batting cages and pitching lanes, where they can practice their swings or test a riot shield. The onsite sportsmen's shop also carries equipment for disc golf, cornhole, and paintball.

  • The Dive Shop Richmond
    Over its 30 year history, The Dive Shop has trained over 10,000 new scuba divers and earned the honor of being a five-star PADI Instructor Development Center, without ever switching owners. The same teachers who helped the first class of students discover the underwater world now aid their children and grandchildren in making the same discovery through Open Water Certification diving courses and introductory lessons. They start beginners off in the safety of local pools, before plumbing the depths of Lake Rawlings during certification dives.
