Water Temps in December

19 days and counting until our New Years cruise! We're planning on going on a snorkeling excursion in Nassau but I'm concerned about the water temperature. Does anyone know how warm the water around Nassau and CC is at the end of December? I'm nervous that it'll be a little chilly and no one will want to snorkel, any thoughts/ input?

Just got off the Dream today! We went on a catamaran and snorkeling excursion in Nassau and the first couple of mins you are freezing but after that we were just fine! The next day at CC same thing! Just jump in! Have a great time!

If you go in slow it will feel cool, once you start swimming/moving around you should be just fine.

Pretty much the same for January as well.
