dbdoberman, you are a better man than I. wink

Even in 84 degree water, I wear my 3 mm. Not because I need it on every dive but because of the cumulative effect on my core temp. That said, I don't need to wear my beanie when the water is that warm.

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

Thanks all! 82-84 eh? Nice. I must confess... I am a warm water wimp. I have to tell you, when we dive on live-aboards in warm water, not only do I wear a 3mm full wetsuit, but I also wear a 3mm tank type shorty over it. It is the 5 dives a day that makes me require it. We did a live-aboard in Palau in 87 degree water with just a 3mm on, and we were freezing after the 4th dive. Amazing how important that core temperature is.

Yes! Yes! Yes! I am very excited! I think I will go pack my gear again! 3 days and counting! laugh laugh laugh laugh laugh

I love diving wearing the very least possible. If I were diving multiple dives daily tho, yup - a 3mm. I was hoping to get by on just taking a shorty and a lined diveskin, as I am only doing 2 dives daily. Might have to rethink that for the Blue Hole trip and the night dive.

Albatross! 2 days and a wakeup! smile life is good!

Dbdoberman - It sounds like that is going to work great for you. Even though I generally get chilled before others do, a 3mm suit worked fine for me for 2 dives/day in Cozumel. Water temp was about 81. Oh boy, Oh boy, two days indeed!
