We did the Explorer the 3rd week of May last year. I wore a t-shirt but I never get cold. Everyone else had lightweight suits or skins. Two of the ladies on the boat used both. The DM's dove in shorties but they only dove occasionally since our groups were all pretty experienced. My buddy is thin, he wore his 3mil. Twice at night off either NW Point or West Caicos (can't recall which) we hit some colder currents, I wished I would've brought a skin for those nights.
Woooo. How was the diving. We are on the t&c aggressor with 7 friends mid may. Very very excited! The weather has been looking prety decent.
The diving was beyond incredible. It seems like each day, we had some sort of close-encounter with wildlife. A few stringrays, I got dive-bombed by a sea turtle, one dive I got intimate with a very inquisitive reef shark and after our the last dive, there was a pod of dolphins playing around our boat. A few of us managed to grab snorkles and fins and slip back into the water and swim with the pod as they passed by which is pretty much the most amazing thing I've ever experienced in the water.
