The dives are done from a boat (except otherwise). The water current is mild (except otherwise). Ask to local people. The dives are done in sea water, watch your buoyancy. Raise the weight on your weight belt accordingly. A 7.5mm thick neoprene wet suit is mandatory. A dry suit may be more suitable depending of your comfort habits. Water temperature is around 60°F but with underwater currents it may drop to around 48°F.
