Taking another 60 second look at Guadalupe we focus on the temperature. Above and below the surface things are very nice. I wouldn't call the water warm, but South Africa and Guadalupe are the only two places I've gotten in a cage without a wetsuit for any amount of time. South Africa comes in second because you can only do this in South Africa's summer and your time in the cage is much shorter than in Guadalupe; I don't think it would be fair to compare 20 minutes in a cage to four hours. Because you can stay in the water so long in Guadalupe most people where a wetsuit in order to preserve their body temperature. This is particularly important when going into deeper water with the submersible cage where you can definitely feel the temperature drop. Furthermore the weight harnesses are heavy enough that it's nice to have the wetsuit as a buffer.
