What are January water temps at the resorts

I have see anything from 75 degrees to 84 degrees( about 25-28 ish) centigrade.

25 centigrade seems really cool this close to the Equator to me.

What is the real deal, vets?

According to Big Blue Planet, the stt peaks at 30c in April and then goes down again in May. Would say about 27c for January.

Don't know officially, but I would say "bath water warm". Not hot, but definitely not cold by any stretch of the imagination.

I too always reckon it is like being in a warm bath - one that has fish swimming in it. Cold it is not.

End Dec -Jan was 29C by dive computer. It got really toasty tho when it lashed down with rain.

Didn't find out what that was as lady diver was curled up over her kindle to keep it dry.

For someone who can't stay out of water I'm a real wuss about temperature but always walk straight into the Indian Ocean.

29 degrees surface water temp, if your diving it will drop a degree or two at depth.
