I just picked up a dive skin for use there. I was going to get a shorty, but don't think I'll need it and it is bulkier to pack.

anyone recently returned that has an answer to this?

I read posts that the water was cooler than usual...should I pack a shorty for snorkeling and short dives??

Anyone know where to buy neoprene shirts?? My daughter has a Roxy wet shirt that I got off of eBay a few years ago, but I haven't seen one since.

The water in Aruba really never gets over 82 F. It does not matter even in the summer and fall. Winter is cooler. If you are diving bring a skin for sure, if you are prone to a chill, bring a shortie.

We just returned 3 weeks ago & the water was fine for snorkeling. I would not purchase a wet suit, save your money for a great dinner in Aruba & a few drinks.

Water temperature at depth is about 78 degrees. If you are doing multiple dives I would purchase a shorty.
