Is the water swimmable in early March at Cococay?

We booked the aqua park for March 4th at Cococay and I'm worried the water temp will be too cold and our money wasted. Has anyone been there that time of year? If it's too cold I'd like to be able to cancel the excursion in time. I'm from north Florida so my water temp standards reflect that latitude, not Canadian standards. Lol

Don’t everyone speak up at once. Yummy

I don't think the water in the Bahamas is ever too cold not to enjoy. It should be just fine. As they used to say back in the day .... "It's better in the Bahamas" ... you should be just fine for swimming.

I have friends who took the same cruise/ship in December and they said it was too cold to swim. 😕

When you are from CO, the water in Bahamas is always warn enough!Wink

I just noticed OldGreyWolf is from Canada. I said not by Canadian standards! Lol I live about an hour and 45 min north of Port Canaveral and my skin is not elephant skin like you frosty northerners.

We went to Blue Springs, FL once and I couldn’t will myself to go all the way in. It’s 73 deg year-round and that doesn’t cut it for a Floridian. Yummy

I noticed that, and that was why I didn't respond initially, but I'm under the impression that by March the waters are warming. I hope someone who is from a warmer climate and has been to Cococay in the Spring will answer you question. I'll just chat about it to keep it near the top of the page so that someone might see it.

it will be the same temperature as you will find in Florida. it's the same lattitude almost. a little more south.

I realize that the Bahamas is just east of south Florida. But there is a rather large temperature difference between my area (north) and S FL. Also, I’ve looked at the weather in both Miami and Nassau and see that Nassau tends to be a bit warmer, regardless of the shared latitude. But I’ve heard/read that the water is warm enough in late April but not in early February. I haven’t seen anyone comment on the timeframe that I’ll be there. So I was hoping to find someone who has.

There is always the option to use a wet suit if the temp is a concern. After all that is why there are wet suits ;)

We don’t own a wetsuit and don’t really want to buy them for such a short cruise.
