    High 80s - shallows in a quarry. Felt like bath water.

    I've enjoyed a short dive in a hot spring... Roughly 110°.

    Otherwise, Panama was the warmest 'normal' water at around 86° in the shallows.

    Pretty common in the Front Yard of Roatan’s CoCoView. Somewhere I’ve got a shot of it at 92°. So hot you get dehydrated from sweating underwater. Think about that.

    82* in a quarry. That was down to about 20’. It was in the upper 70’s down to about 30’ and dropped off pretty quickly below that.

    The superheated kiddie pool in West Chester, PA YMCA. Sounds like you would love it.

    I almost stroked out in my drysuit and thermals while getting my gear squared away. I'd much rather freeze to death...
