* General Information (Need to Know)
Dive Conditions:
Water temperatures can range from the low 60s in winter to the low 80s in summer. It’s best to check with a local operator for information on conditions, and include a spare vest or hood in case things get chilly at depth. Offshore visibility can reach 100 feet on rare occasions, but you can usually count on at least half that offshore, and anywhere from 20 to 50 feet at the jetties and off the beach.
When To Go: The region attracts a small community of year-round divers, but for most, the season doesn’t get started until Easter and can stretch into late October. On summer weekends, both boats and hotels book up early. September provides a prime combination of still-warm water, fewer tourists and lower hotel rates.
