I've booked a trip to Discovery Cove and it JUST occurred to me that my insulin pump can't get wet. Ack!

I've emailed them to see if you can come/go out of the water as you please, or if you're in specific sections for a certain amount of time...also to see if I'd have access to my bag at all times, or if has to be put up in a locker somewhere.

Was wondering if anyone here has gone and how you went on about your day.

Thanks!

I wear a Medtronic pump and CGM

(sorry if this has already been discussed here - I did a search and couldn't find any other threads)

Not sure of how much time you will be spending in the water, but an aquapac could be an option: http://store.aquapac.net/insulin-pump-case-158a-29.html. I have one and it has worked well for me.
