    Okay, so we're heading for T&C this next weekend (our first scuba diving vacation ever!) I'm used to diving in the northeast, and the thinnest suit I have is a Henderson 5MM. Will it be too hot for T&C, and should I buy a quickee 3MM or even skin?

    Thanks in advance for any information!:D

    I would guess a 3mm shorty or just a bathing suit should be fine. Water temp should be in the lower 80's this time of year.

    Hey, just got back. Water was great (around 81) and honestly, the 5MM worked perfectly! Some of my fellow divers with 3MM complained about occasional cold, and the suit also of course helped protect against any inadvertent contact with coral. 5MM did well with me...! (And T&C was gorgeous.)
