I think if you are going to either dive via hooka or tanks you should at least get your open water dive certificate first.

i used one as an ab diver in new zealand. it would get you down to 60ft. unlike a scuba tank you don't run out of air after about 40min at that depth so not only can you risk air embolism from breath holding on the way up you risk getting bent (u.s. navy table: 60min/60ft then you're into decompression (or at least you were 25 yrs ago!))

Okay, Let me beat this dead horse some more.

1) The gas units used in Marinas in the Miami area can't be heard more than two boat slips away. They are pretty quiet and when someone is cleaning their hull, it's almost impossible to tell.

2) As a Hookah owner (Brownie) and a SCUBA Instructor, I encourage you to do two things. A) Become open water certified. B) Take the on-line course that Brownie offers at no additional charge.

Failure to do either of those can (and usually will) result in severe injury and possibly death - even as shallow as 12 feet of water.

Hope this answers your questions.

Best of luck
