Questions and Answers for Deep See 3mm Front-Zip Shorty Wetsuit:
We have a trip planned to Hawaii in the month of April. I remember being cold the last time we snorkeled and swam there in March years ago.I have read that the average water temp is 75 degrees when we will be there. Would you think a shorty wetsuit would be ok? Or should I be looking for more? Temperate or warm water suit?Hopefully I could use it to extend the "season" in our salt water pool as well.
I would appreciate your input. Thank you!

A shorty suit should be fine. If you tend to get cold you might want to think about going to a full suit for added warmth.
I weigh 237 lbs.. Will the deep see 3mm front zipper shorty keep me afloat in the water like a life jacket?

Hello Frank, since the material this suit is made out of neoprene it will help keep you floating but will NOT FLOAT you like a life jacket.
