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. Cloud cover becomes heavier and precipitation picks up toward the end of the month as the summer tropical storm season approaches but most rain will be in the form of passing showers. The wind continues to die toward its July summer lows, and 12.1 mph winds out of the east are the norm for April.
April Marine Life
April is the start of sea turtle nesting season, so the chances of spotting these creatures are good. The Tarpon migration is beginning and a lucky diver might spot a school moving along the reef.
