I am going on a cruise in a month and would like to know what parts of the Dexcom can go in water ...pools and beaches.

I prefer the hard case for kayaking. I use the Pelican case http://www.pelican-case.com/microcases.html. I find it easier to get things in and out of than a bag.
i just read in my manual that the transmiter is actually only water resistant, and shouldn't be in the water for more than 30 mintutes. My daughter does 1 to 1.5 hour workouts in the pool 3 to 4 times a week. she has only had the dex for about 3 months, and so far so good, but does anyone else use it like this? any long term problems?
I called Dexcom too and they said 30 minute max in 3 feet of water. But apparently if you come out of the water at 25 minutes, re-connect it, and go back in it's okay. As long as you do this every 25-30 minutes. I don't understand it...
Interesting
I am going on a cruise next month so I am trying to figure all this out
