Has anybody got the current actual temp for the Northern Red Sea (Thistlegorm) I have looked at various site which give temp but its sort of on the cusp for me between 5mm and 3mm. I much prefer to use 3 mm so if anybody can give me a recent temp reading I would be most grateful. Going 4th May so if anbody coming back next week that would be great.

I was there the week before Easter and the water temp was about 22C. I had a 5mm wetsuit, rashie, hood and gloves if that is any help and on some dives wished for a semi-dry.

The plan is vital, it's something to deviate from.

Two weeks ago it was a steady 22 all round, by 5th May should be up to 23/4ish.

22 is drysuit for me, as it's windy, but by end of May I'll be in a full 5mm.

3mm for me is August/September only!
