atm water

I am a wimp when comes to cold water. Although I love adventure and would not miss the opportunity but would rather not be cold

so my question is. What is water temperature in atm in November? Or an average temperature ok too?

Since I'm asking what's the water temperature in ocean?

Thanks

The water is a little cold, but you are moving the entire time, so you do stay somewhat warm due to that. Don't know the temps, but they don't vary that much. After the hike to the cave, you'll probably be glad for the chilly water. If you wanted a dry cave, Mountain Cow cave is awesome, and way better, imho, than ATM.

I was going to buy a surfers wet suit just wondering how warm it needs to be

I was there last November and did not find it cold at all. If you get cold easily and want to buy a suit, no need to buy a very thick one.

We were there the first week in January and the water wasn't cold; we wore bathing suits and I had a quick dry running shirt, which I appreciated because it provided some warmth once out of the water. You're moving, which helps, and you're in shallow water some of the time. I don't think you need a wetsuit, but if you decide to get one I'd buy a very light one, and just a short-sleeve top. It's a great adventure. Have fun.
