    Your survey is not structured well. When the answer to a question is no the survey requires you to answer questions that expand as if it were a yes answer. For example "Have you ever been on a specific holiday dedicated to diving?" If you answer no it still requires you answer questions providing specifics of a holiday trip dedicated to diving. You are going to get very bad data because of the structure of your survey instrument.

    And before everyone starts harassing me of course I dive on vacations. But my wife does not dive (YET!) so we find vacations with a little for everyone, including diving for me and my daughter.

    Hi @Penny Ives

    What is "Ocean Walking" ?

    You need to make some changes to the questionnaire to allow multiple responses.

    Such as different global areas - I have dived in Europe, USA, Africa, Asia and Oceana

    Type of diving, people do all sorts of diving

    Transport - I've driven to dive sites and taken a boat

    I'm qualified through several agencies

    etc.,

    I went through it but didn't submit it

    Oh and please correct the question "What type of diving qualification do you withhold"

    Thank you for your criticism it has been taken on board my questionnaire it aimed only at people that have dived before either on holiday or on a course or dive regularly, I will be making amendments.

    Hi thank you, I was unaware that you were not able to select multiple things, I will be making amendments.
