Hi wonder if someone can help me..?

Is it possible to dive in UK waters in a 5mm wet suit. The region I am looking at is the South Coast.

Im sure it must be ok in the summer but has anyone got any ideas what the earliest month you could start diving in a wet suit is ???

Not sure about 5mm but I have been diving this week in a 7mm semi-dry and still felt ok after 30-40minutes...

Cheers, Paul K

I dived last summer in a 5mm wet suit around swanage and portland but I did have a fourth element top and shorts on underneath so I was effectively diving in a 7mm set up. I was warm enough during july, august, september. Having said that I know someone else who was diving in a 3mm shorty at the same time.

depends how much you feel the cold.

Safe diving
