Divers have been coming back with reports of 78f at depth.
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, chilly for the local divemasters but good for the corals.

Thank you for the report Elbert; I agree, most of my dive days I would be quite happy with 78 degree water temperature....However, a few days ago while Kayaking I took a quick dip in the water to find myself chilled.....I have not seen goosebumps in months....I think I'll dig my 7 mil out of the closet.....

Same for me for the most part...However, I do stay warm.....Maybe I should look for the ones that are Gender specific with cut outs and all the right room in all the right places?

JudyAnn -there are a lot of women's thermal protections out there. Using a good Lycra skin between your skin and any neoprene helps keep you warm. Since I am fat to begin with I find all I need is a Lycra skin. Sea Godless has some attractive designs. You can order on line.

Thank you Harriette....At my age I think I'll simply wait for the warm water......Is the label really called Godless? That's funny to me.....
