Snorkeling experience on Nov 3rd 2018

I have a relative (70 year old) passed away from the drowning accident dying the glass boat tour around 4pm on Nov 3rd. I am in the states. Just wondering what other people's swimming experience was on that day such as water temperature? We doubt it's good for old people to get into water around 4pm. Appreciate your input.

I hope it's not false alarm to everyone who plan on getting into the water this season.

I'm so sorry to hear that. The average water temperature early November is about 25 degrees Celsius, +/- 77 F so that's not exactly warm. The problem sometimes in Aqaba is the wind. I hope someone who was there yesterday will see this post so you will have more info.
