Key West Scuba Diving in October
The fall transition in Key West brings interesting marine life as big gamefish follow bait schools into warmer waters along the reef. Key West scuba diving in October is fine – surface water temps cool a bit but are still in the comfortable 80s. Visibility depends on sea condition and location but is often very good.
October Weather Outlook
The sky clears up and Key West daily temperatures drop to the low 80s in October. The chance of rainfall also drops rapidly through the month as tropical storm season ends. By the end of October, there is only a 25% chance of rain on a given day. Fall breezes kick up with average wind speeds increasing from 11.3mph to 14.3mph by the end of the month.
October Marine Life
Fall cold fronts push concentrations of baitfish into the reef and pelagic gamefish like Cero Mackerel and Jack Crevalle can sometimes be spotted following them in. Look for Red Groupers around the crevices and ledges of the reef.
