Hi Chuck,

We just finished a four day survey in the northern islands - San Miguel, Santa Rosa and Santa Cruz - and found temps in the 55-57 degree range. Granted most of the dives were fairly shallow, but at Santa Cruz on the Spirit of America site, we had 57 degrees on the bottom at about 60 fsw. Visibility ranged as well. At Miguel, inside Point Bennett on the Cuba site, it was sporadically up to 30-feet, but a new recruitment of some type of fish placed dense clouds of 1/8-inch long juveniles in the water column and brought the visibility down to as little as 8-feet. Most of the Rosa jumps found 20-30 foot vis and the same for Santa Cruz.

I hope this helps.
Enjoy your trip.
