Q:

For the beginner option, do you have to do the 20-25 minute briefing and skills completion with an instructor if you're open water certified to 60ft? Also, can I buy the groupon for myself AND as a gift or can I only buy multiples as gifts?

Erica E.  asked on  Feb 28, 2013

A:

No, if you are certified we'll setup equipment while the briefing is being completed. The Groupon is one per person, I think you can buy gifts for more than one as long as they are not for the same person.

Q:

Hello, As a child I had tubes put in my ears from chronic ear infections. Is this something that would be a barier for me to dive? Also do you pick up from Ko Olina Marriot?

Ashley B.  asked on  Feb 28, 2013

A:

We do not pickup from the Marriott Ko Olina. This is a semi-barrier, you'll have to see your physician and get them to clear you and state that you are "fit to SCUBA dive". If you email me at nick@waikikidiving.com I can send you a form to take to them.

Q:

How long will I be under water with 2 tanks or air?

Mingi S.  asked on  Feb 27, 2013

A:

Depends on how fast you breathe! They usually last between 20 and 45 minutes. There are two dives at that time and we make two dives with one tank on each dive.

Q:

Sorry I wasn't very clear. The Waikiki Dive Center's website says you have to be 12 years old for the beginners dive but on the Groupon it says 10 years old. Which is it?

Linda  asked on  Feb 27, 2013

A:

It's 10 years old

Nicholas W.  from  Merchant  replied on  Feb 27, 2013

Q:

On the Groupon site it says beginner divers who are not certified can dive as long as they are 10 years old. The dive website says 12 years old. Which is it? My son it 10 and wants to do this.

Linda  asked on  Feb 27, 2013

A:

What dive website?

Q:

My wife, daughter and I are not certified divers, I've dove a number of times in other countries where certification is not needed but never in the US. Is there a certification needed for this dive? Living in very near the beach in San Diego and owning a pool, we all swim well. I thank you in advance for your reply.

Lydell F.  asked on  Feb 27, 2013

A:

Lydell, you guys are welcome to join the beginner dive you just have to pass the medical questionnaire.

Q:

Hey Nick! (Or Chris) This is Mark E. from Chicago. Is this a limit of 1 per person? Or 1 per person per dive charter? I.e., when I'm out there again in in April, can I buy 5 -10 of these and use them to go diving on 5 different days, both charters? Or just good for 1 person, 1 time?

Mark E.  asked on  Feb 27, 2013

A:

Hey Mark! Unfortunately they are just one per person for one time.
