Has anyone dove (dived) in Austin recently? I'm wanting to know what the conditions are. We're doing aow this weekend and am wondering what the water temps are.Will a shorty do for the deep dive or am I better off taking a full suit?

On Monday, vis of 6-8 feet down to 50 feet, then cleared up to 15-20 feet. Water temp was 84 on the surface and 82 at 135 feet. I will be there this evening with an Adv/Nitrox combo student, so I can update this tonight.

After this evenings dives at Mansfield Park the water temp is still 84-82 down to 70 feet. Vis was a cloudy 6-8 feet down to 50 feet, then improved to 15-20 feet. Have fun!

Agreed, I was down with Recdiver, wearing a diveskin. I was very comfortable down to 70 ft (our max depth) and would not have wanted any heavier wetsuit. Vis is not bad, 15 - 20, after you get down past 30 ft.
