The above site will tell you anything you want to know about the sea temperature. Seems the current temperature of 79 is over a degree below the average for this time of year.

Thanks all of you. We will be in Aruba next week, I follow the Water Temperature, They say it is 79, which seems cold compared to the October temperature of 84 when we usually go to Aruba. I do not see many people in the water on the Web cams and was hoping it felt warmer than the temperature said.

I don't like to swim in cold water. But, I have swum in the ocean every day for the past six weeks and it does not feel cold at all. Swim and enjoy!

It was the same way last May. The water felt cold compared to October/November.

Thanks for the site link. We always travel in June and the water is chilly upon entry. It is fine once we have adjusted to it. It does appear the fall months experience warmer water temps than when we go.

Ocean water is MUCH warmer than the pool water. :shock: There is a few dips in the sand upon entry which makes it a little tough getting in and out on Eagle beach. Otherwise perfect!
