Depends on the current and the wind. Last time I was out the surface temp was 70 and it was 74 on the bottom. Two weeks ago I was on a spot that was 72 on the surface and 68 on the bottom. The coldest water I have ever encountered here is 62 degrees at 120 fsw. All of these temps are from the reef on the Atlantic side. You can check the current temp by going the NOAA web site, and the weather bouys give temp. Probably alot warmer than the water you are used to diving, so you should be OK. http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.phtml?$station=dryf1
