Hello,

We are a family of three, all certified divers. We are planning a trip to Meeru between the dates of August 30th - Sept. 7th. Our travel agent recommended a JWV and AI package. So here are the questions:

My daughter is 15 years old, i have seen somewhere on the net that teenagers are not allowed on Jacuzzi Water llas is it true?

I am a semi pro underwater photographer, i am planning to make lots of dives and snorkelling around, taking my D300 and HD video cam. Is the diving school OK? Is it possible to take tanks and dive in like in the Red Sea (I am a PADI Dive Master with more than 500 dives, Wife is Advanced Open Water with 100 dives) ?

Are the JWV a bit too close to each other for comfort? Do you have any recommendations for a first timer?

Thank you in advance & Cheers,

A. Saltik

Hi Saltic

welcome to the forum

I can't answer all of your questions

but I can say that children are NOT allowed in the JWV's

Children are allowed in the Beach Villa's and the Garden rooms only

My husband edd has used the dive school.........it is Ocean Pro and highly recomended.......and aclaimed by all who have used it

There is a dive section here on the forum

and so I am sure that all dive questions if posted there will be answered as fully as possible

looking forwards to seeing your piccies

hi aziz

could be wrong Shocked Laughing

but

please read this thread

http://www.meeru.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10146&highlight=children+ages

children under the age of 18 are NOT allowed in Jacuzzi Water Villa's Water Villa's or Jacuzzi beach Villa's

a 15 year old would be treated as a child.....even though I know from my own......when they where that age......that they don't think that they are Laughing

Thank you Lee,

The common practice in the Red Sea is to make a check dive with a divemaster at first and then you can just grab tanks and dive in the house reef as you please. Since there is no regular house reef there is no point in doing that even if that is allowed.

Thank you as well for the heads up regarding the rules, they are mostly the same everywhere else in the world.

Hope the diving and snorkelling will be good though.

Cheers,

hi steve

but what about Q to ages of teenagers/children in JWV's Question

I thought that that room age Q might be more relevant on General Shocked Laughing

but agree with diving segment being on this thread Laughing thumright
