While the air and water temperature are pleasant all year round. During the cooler months, thermal protection is advisable for scuba diving or snorkeling. Water conducts heat away from your body at a rate 40 times faster than air. Therefore, having a wetsuit will keep you comfortable in the water. Even in the summer, it is a good idea to keep your skin covered to minimize the amount of chemicals entering the water from sunscreen. In addition, keeping your skin covered will better protect it from harmful UV rays. For more specifics, please check with the Instyle Yachts crew and your personal itinerary.
