Water temperature is now 76°F and the long sunny days bring the air temperature at 80°F to 85°F. We forecast a busy diving month for April with lots of courses and diving activities planned for the incoming spring.

This is the time of year we recommend that divers take a refresher course prior to taking an open ocean plunge. Courses are available at all levels with instruction ranging from Open Water to technical classes.

Visibility should be on the average of 80 foot plus, with lots of sharks and turtles to keep divers entertained. With mating season approaching, lots of animals are coming closer to shore in order to find their partner, allowing divers to encounter a wide variety of creatures.

A favorite this time of year are wrecks, as they become the resting spots of loggerhead and hawksbill turtles. Unannounced encounters with manta rays and hammerhead sharks are just behind the next coral head.
