We started with a short boat ride that would allow us about an
hour for a drift dive. Here is that video

Looks like you had a blast.

What was the water temp? The reason I ask is I see a huge mix of different thermal protection being used.

I'm guessing here. I haven't looked at my computer.
I would venture a guess as somewhere around 72 degrees.
I usually feel the temp through my dry suit.. I felt very very comfortable
to the point I don't remember even thinking about the temp.

a 5mm may have worked... but who dives wet these days? lol

Nice. I usually dive dry, but not when I am in water that warm. I guess it is all dependent on what you are used to, but considering the ice is about 8" thick over here, to me 72 is like a sauna.
