The water temps are usually in the mid 60s in early May but are sometimes warmer.

I'm not familiar with that photographer.

I'm sorry that I couldn't be more helpful. If you have anymore questions, feel free to ask.

I love this link for water temps.


As you can see the water temp is already 61 degrees. In early May it is still cool but I really think it is in the high 60s and low 70s. Come August our water temps are in the 80s. Just wonderful!! You can definitely get in a swim but not for too long and the pools are open for most condos. The pools will also be cold.

If the air temps are in the 90s at the end of May the water might be bearable but it will still take your breath away.I don't hit the water till June,I hate cold water.

Never hear of that Photographer but I will give you the name of a good one around here as soon as i can find His card.
