20 outdoor adventure trips to take this summer
One of the best places to hone the craft of scuba diving is in the seaport town of Newport, R.I., where the Newport Diving Center offers an intensive, full accreditation six-class course that will have you strapping a tank to your back in no time. Tanks, wet suits, and regulators are among the equipment the center supplies for the $449 cost of a class, however, those taking the class will need to bring masks, fins, and snorkels. See site for details.
