Warm Weather in Key Largo!

According to Ken Kaye of the Sun Sentinel, while much of the nation has been shivering through brutal cold, South Florida just sweated throughTropical diving in the winter!its third straight abnormally balmy winter. As a matter of fact, this winter is the third warmest on record!

This bodes well for scuba diving the Florida Keys, as water temperatures reflect this warm trend.  In Key Largo, reef water temps have been between 75 and 78 degrees all through the winter so far. This is something that hasn’t escaped our notice…especially our Scuba Instructors, who certainly prefer the warm temperatures!  More importantly, our dive customers have certainly noticed this as reflected in the many positive comments we’ve gotten about dive conditions!

And according to USA Today, “The southernmost point of the United States sits in the Florida Keys, which boast warm February beach weather. Temperatures in the Keys stay constant for most of the year, with highs ranging from 75 to 90 degrees and lows from 65 to 80 degrees. February highs generally reach the mid-70s, with lows in the mid-60s. The Keys stretch for roughly 110 miles and offer beaches on both the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico.”

So get out of the cold and come on down and dive Key Largo with Sea Dwellers Dive Center, you won’t regret it…especially this Winter!
