    Hi everybody,
    After much too long a layoff from diving my wife and I are heading back to The Keys in mid-November (Marathon area this time). Plan on doing the easy, shallow, pretty reefs to get back into it. Take some GoPro videos, etc.
    Anybody have any idea what we should expect as far as ocean temps.?
    Thanks.
    Chuck

    Thanks so much Reefman and Captain Gary.
    It looks like somewhere around 76 to 80 degrees is about the average that time of year.
    I'm guessing most people are wearing full suits, probably about 3mm?
