I am a biology student from Cincinnati. I was wondering...I had heard that often diving companies, hire six month staff for tours. Is this so, is there work to find for someone who wants to spend 6 months in hawaii? I would appriciate any help, or website you may know of. Thanks

I'm currently in Hawaii and have seen quite a lot of jobs advertised in retail shops. But I don't know how much they get paid...

I believe Chamberlain is talking about scuba diving.

I would suggest contacting any/all of the dive organizations (PADI, NAUI, SSI, etc.) for recommendations on possible positions available in Hawaii. Your level of certification and number of recent logged dives will be a deciding factor on what a dive operation is willing to offer you. Working behind the counter in a dive shop may be one way to get your foot in the door, allowing you access to operators and underwater time (for pay). I would start with the organization that trained you.

Good luck!
