Do You Get Cold While Diving..Even In Tropical Waters? Even Wearing A Wetsuit??

The Secret to staying warm? Wear a tropical hood! Don’t shiver throughout your dive…you went on vacation to the islands to enjoy yourself! Even 80-82 degree water will suck the heat out of most divers after just a few days of diving. After all, it’s almost 20 degrees colder than your body temperature, and water will pull body heat away MUCH faster than air. Especially if you have a thin body build, you’ll notice it more than other divers that are…shall we say…more husky. There are two lightweight and COMFORTABLE tropical hoods that we love…the Deep See 3mm Tropic Hood, and the O’Neill Squid Lid. They certainly aren’t a fashion statement, but who cares if you’re toasty warm!
