With very warm water, why the wet suits for snorkeling?

Well, added flotation, I suppose. And even with warm water, you'll lose heat eventually, so you could stay in longer. They were described as optional, but everybody seemed to be opting for them, so it seemed like the thing to do.

Also, the very warm water at the beach was in a shallow bay. The deep channel where we went snorkeling was cooler.

Oh, and the wetsuit also keeps your back from getting sunburned. But a shirt would also do that.
