Its December and Ambergris Caye has had a week of cool weather. The Caribbean waters at the Barrier Reef have dropped to 78f./26c. still warm by most standards but chilly for the local divemasters but good for the corals.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

January's starting temperatures are 79-80f.
The visibility was 100'+ yesterday. The coolness of the water doesn't allow some plankton growth that effects visibility.

January 15th and the average water temp has been 81F. or 27. Degrees Celsius.
Rarely is there a thermocline, due to the tides and turbulence.

June 2nd and the water temperature at depth is 82f.or 27.7 Celsius.
Turtle mating is triggered by the water temp as well as the time of the year and the Loggerheads are cruising the reef on Ambergris.
I expect it to be 83f.+ in a few weeks.

July, and we hit a whopping 84f. yesterday! Warm like bathwater for the divers but not healthy for the corals.
