Mid to low 70's. Doesn't change much between the surface and at depth. Visibility depends on where you are. At that time you 'll be on the south or west shore, so probably 50-100 ft. Maybe up to 150.

We dove Oahu in January and 3mm farmer john and was very comfortable. If you shore dive though, go with the full suit. I dove there in a couple of weeks ago and smacked my knee on a volcanic rock getting in and now have a lovely scar...good stories though :)

Well I ended up diving four days in a row last week in Oahu. I did all morning dives and the water was around 75 degrees. We did wrecks first followed by shallow reefs.

Only once after 45 minutes on reef did I get cold. I guess it was my warm Florida blood that kept me nice and warm in my shortie,lol
