We plan to spend nine days heavy snorkleing (no scuba) on the BIG Island of Hawaaii within the next few weeks. I have a very lightweight suit (less than 1 mm), but figure a black "scar guard" tshirt should be enough. I was here ten years ago and scubad daily and do not remember ever being cold, but better safe than sorry if not to expensive. I live in MIchigan, and unlikely Ill be getting back for an adventure like this again soon or ever, so need some advice???
Well we heavy snorkleing but not diving on the Kon side of the BIG Island of hawaii for nine days. I have a very lightweights weightsuit (1 mm ?), and have only one night dive scheduled witht he mantas. I was here ten years ago and it was my first time, and I dont remember wearing anything nor ever bing cold. However if at a reasonable cost, I think a black "scar guard" may be enough for me to get by. True? Reccomendations?
I will be going to Grand Cayman for extensive snorkeling for 9 days in mid April. The water is around 79, will that be warm enough to just wear over swimsuit? I am having problems being able to fit into a shorty body suit etc. Thanks for information.
Hi Janice, We would recommend something a little thicker. Lycra skins don''t offer warmth. See link below for a skin that would provide some warmth. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-60/110981/LavaCore-by-Oceanic-Trilaminate-Polytherm-Short-Sleeve-Dive-Shirt.html
