    Obviously, we know that early mornings are typically better for us down here. My problem is that I have classes during the week at crazy times. Some dayss mornings are better to squeeze in a dive while the rest leave afternoons open. What are your thoughts on diving at other times of the day? I know there are a lot of variables so lets just talk in generals and averages over years of experience.

    I agree, mornings typically see fewer storms/rain showers during the summer.

    Good dives can be had 24/7 but "usually" the seas are flatter in the morning.

    BTW are any of you available for a beach dive Friday morning?
