Q:

My son is special needs - high functioning Autism and ADHD. He is a strong swimmer - loves the water and ocean - but has never goone snorkelling. What is your experience with kids like him? Is the apparatus comfortable?

A:

I'm sorry you missed out on this deal! If the business sets a limit on how many Groupons we can offer, you will see "Limited quantity available" under the hourglass and countdown of the time left to buy. There are a few reasons why we may limit the number of Groupons available on certain deals, but generally it's to ensure a high quality of service for Groupon customers.

I'm sorry this one sold out so quickly! I hope this helps explain the situation.

Q:

What if your already an aquarium member? We are, so we don't need the admission discount. For us, this groupon is only a $7.50 savings.

Kathy G.  asked on  Aug 2, 2013

A:

Thank you for your membership. Aquarium Members would need to determine if they'd like the $7.50 savings – we think it's a great offer and a great way to introduce new guests to our Aquarium. If you'd like to skip this Groupon, perhaps you might enjoy our Tour Boat Groupon that does not include any admission and is available for $9.00 / ticket (normally $18.50 + tax / pp). http://www.groupon.com/deals/long-island-aquarium-exhibition-center-1

Q:

what if you buy the tickets and they do not have any spots left for the 11:30 snorkel adventure. How long before you plan to go do you have to buy your tickets from groupon?

kathy m.  asked on  Aug 2, 2013

A:

Hello. We have a limited quantity of offers available because we blocked out the spots for the 11:30 Snorkel Adventure. So there is a spot available for every Groupon that is offered. But, you would want to call 631.208.9200, ext. 426 to reserve your spot as soon as you purchase the deal to ensure you get the date that works best for you. Hope this helps. Enjoy!

Q:

One more question....it says limit 5 per person. I have 6 in my group, so can I buy the 6th person's as a gift then and we can all go together? Or do I need to buy each one as a gift?

Amanda C.  asked on  Jul 31, 2013

A:

Hello. There is a 5 person limit for this offer. But you can purchase your 6th offer in a separate transaction. Please keep in mind, that there is a 15 person maximum limit for each 11:30 AM session, so call to reserve as soon as you purchase your Groupons to ensure your space. Enjoy!

Q:

My son is 11. He would be doing this by himself. Do I need to purchase a ticker to get into the aquarium even though I am not going Snorkeling? Thank You.

Teresa L.  asked on  Aug 1, 2013

A:

If you are only purchasing a Groupon experience for your son, which includes the 11:30am session and one Aquarium Admission, you would need to purchase Aquarium Admissions on the day of arrival, or through our site, for all the guests accompanying him and not purchasing the Groupon. As your child is under 18, he must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Groupon deal does not include extra admissions for spectators, parents, or guardians.

Q:

Ok...I more question... If I buy the Groupon and it is cancelled due to weather will the Groupon be honored after 8/31?

Alyssa  asked on  Jul 31, 2013

A:

Pirate Snorkel Adventure is rain or shine. In the event of lightning, the program will be rescheduled. Reservations would reach out to all reserved guests to reschedule.

Bryan D.  from  Merchant  replied on  Jul 31, 2013

Q:

could we use the groupon for admission for one person but the snorkel adventure for another person (who is already a member)?

Debra C.  asked on  Jul 31, 2013

A:

Hello. No, I'm sorry, this Groupon offer is for the Pirate Snorkel Adventure and Aquarium Admission only, for one guest.

Bryan D.  from  Merchant  replied on  Jul 31, 2013

Q:

Hi! Can I use 2 groupons on the same day? One for each of my children?

Kerrie H.  asked on  Jul 31, 2013

A:

Yes. You can use up to 5 Groupon offers. Enjoy!

Bryan D.  from  Merchant  replied on  Jul 31, 2013

Q:

How is the visibility in the tank if it is raining?

Alyssa  asked on  Jul 31, 2013

A:

Hello! Visibility should be fine. You would be wearing goggles and looking at the action underwater, so it should be just fine if it is raining. Of course, if it is a very bad storm, with thunder and lightening, the adventure would need to be rescheduled.

Q:

How long is the snorkel? How deep is the water?

Rosanne  asked on  Jul 30, 2013

A:

The experience lasts around 45 minutes. The tank starts at 1-2ft. deep, and is 6ft. deep at it's deepest point. Have fun!

Brette V.  from  Groupon  replied on  Jul 30, 2013

A:

Hi there. Actually it lasts one hour. Enjoy!
