Key Largo Weather Report Sail Fish Scuba

While scuba diving Key Largo at All Dive Sites Divers must understand the local operators do not control the weather and conditions.

All islands of the Florida Keys including Key Largo follow Weather Reports to protect the safety of our Sail Fish Scuba crew and guests.
When the wind blows harder than 20 knots from the South or South East the seas grow high quickly.
Trust me when I say that all scuba dive shops in the Florida Keys want to take you out as much as possible on their boats.
However safety comes first.
All Key Largo, Florida Keys scuba diving operators get notices from NOAA.Gov about hazardous marine conditions.
To ignore these report emails would just be careless and stupid.

NOAA/NWS Florida Keys marine weather update

When Key Largo diving operators get an email from: Kennard “Chip” Kasper – NOAA Federal, they must take what it says seriously.
Folks we sure wish we had some hidden secret lovely reef diving sites that were never changed by windy days, but we just don’t.
Here is a sample of the NOAA/NWS email report we got in the afternoon on 26 January 2019.
“Chip says”
Hi everyone,
The normally slow-changing Florida Keys weather pattern will become highly volatile during the next 24 hours.

Given this scenario, we recommend checking marine weather observations and forecasts frequently, as they are likely to change.

Here are the primary potential marine weather hazards tonight through Sunday night:


Tonight — Small Craft Advisory currently is in effect for the extreme southeastern Gulf of Mexico beyond five fathoms. NNE ranging from 15-20 knots, highest west of Key West.
Sunday — Volatile wind character expected. ESE becoming S, becoming SW, becoming W. Wind speeds could be below 10 knots or above 30 knots depending on low pressure system development and evolution.
Sunday night — Higher confidence in NNW 20-30 knots developing.

NOAA/NWS Florida Keys Thunderstorms

Tonight — Isolated; a few severe storms possible after 3:00 a.m., mainly over the Straits of Florida.
Sunday — Marginal risk for severe storms.
Sunday night — Non-severe storms mainly along an eastward-moving squall line.

Periods of heavy rain are likely through Sunday night.

Seas will depend on wind and thunderstorms.

Please consult the following sources for Florida Keys marine weather.
