Ms. Blu Cow is correct, there is diving year round. the water temperature starts to cool down around the end October, with the coldest temperatures in February - April.
But for me, the water temperature is not as critical as being able to warm up inbetween dives. During surface intervals, if it is cold, overcast, windy, rainy, etc., I just cannot warm up inbetween dives and consequently my dives get shorter. In some instances, it is warmer in the water than on the deck of the boat!
The coldest temps I've ever seen are 48 - 50 degrees F, and that is usually in February or March, and out at San Miguel.
