Key West Scuba Diving in April

Calm water and warm breezes make it a pleasure to spend April days offshore on Key West’s world-class dive sites. With water temperatures in the high 70s, wetsuits can be left on shore, and the visibility often becomes excellent in April as the spring winds drop.

April Weather Outlook
April is the start of summer weather in Key West, with air temps moving into the 80s on a daily basis and average lows in the 70s.
