Water Temperature on Key Largo Reef

Water Temperature on Key Largo reef

The water temperature on the Key Largo reef varies throughout the year with warmest water in August.  The coldest water is usually in January. Wind direction and the proximity of the Gulf Stream affect the water temperature as well as the season.

These are the water temperatures recorded on the reef at 20 feet if you are diving deeper then you may well experience lower temperatures.

Our rental gear has 3mm wetsuits both shorties and full wetsuits.  Sizes from XS to XXXL and everything in between.  Our full wetsuits are the newest Akona stretch fabric for your comfort.

Water temperature is around 70-75F. Full 3mm wetsuits required for SCUBA diving, Maybe a hood on the colder days.
