im sorry, but being a NC diver, I must take at least a small stand here. We DO have warm water diving. Our inshore wreck sites can get a little chilly in the early and late season, and even the offshore temps get a little cool in the winter, but we do have warm water. Our offshore sites sit in the blue water that comes in off the gulf stream. During our main diving season the water is in the 80`s. It might be accurate to say that we dont have year round warm diving temperatures compared to the Caribbean, but if you compare us to Monterey Bay, we dont even have cold water!! and congrats on the find. may you find happiness and if it is meant to be, a wonderful future together.
