    Who has been there in the past few weeks?? I seen one post about the water temp is 79* that seems "cold." I have been to Bonaire this time of year and the water there has been 82* I will be there in 2 weeks, April 5-12 so I'm reading up on the latest info.

    Last weekend it was close to 79 degrees which is indeed a bit colder than normal. But even then I dive every weekend without a shorty; a T-shirt and swim trousers is enough for a 1 hour dive. In the next few months the temperature should go up to 86.

    Regards

    Thanks for the info- packing the gear up now. I have a 3-4-5 suit, 5 in the core, 4 upper arms and upper legs and the rest 3mm. I use this often in the Caribbean and works well and in the "cooler" water it sounds like it will be the one to take. I do have a 3mm but it's old and needs to be retire.

    Thank you for everyone's input. I have a group of people going next week, and knew the water was cooler than normal. I will update my divers! I am still lugging my drysuit (wimp that I am).

    Hi Janine!
    Chuck and I are still here on the island and every dive registers 78 or 79 degrees. I've been wearing a 4/3 all week and am very, very cold by the end of the second dive. Wish I had my 5 mil and a beanie!!
    On the bright side, the sunny weather makes you warm up very quickly and the diving is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!

    Enjoy!!
    Meg :)
