I have been searching for accurate info about swimming in the ocean in early March, but have not achieved clarity. I have been in Anna Maria that time of year and sometimes the water has been quite cold. I am fairly hardy about the temp, but cqan someone tell me whether it is reasonable for me to expect to be able to swim, not just dip, in the first week of march. If not, I will come but will be sure to find accomodation with warm pool. thanks in advance!
