    Wow , what a video ! Thanks you so much for sharing it so quickly , it’s mindblowing and I loved the music.

    Just a quick question , what were the temperatures like and what exposures suit do you and it most of the other divers use ?

    Temperature down to 20 C at Darwin and Wolf. I elected to skip the last 2 days of diving (5 dives) because the DM said that the temperature would be down to 15 C.

    I was wearing a 5mm semi-dry with a 4th Element Thermocline hooded vest underneath, which was good enough for temps down to 20C. Others on the boat were primarily wearing 7mm (some with additional layers) and there were a couple of dry suits. Quite a number skipped the last 2 days of diving.

    Worth going, but go prepared. I had been looking for a 7mm wetsuit for some time but could not find one in the warmer climes that I frequent. So I went prepared to bail out of some dives if I thought it would be too cold.
