The waters off the Southwest Florida coast these days are picture-perfect, just in time for people heading back to the beaches.

“The best time of year to get in the water and dive in Southwest Florida is this time,” said Capt. Bill D’Antuono, owner of Offshore Naples Fishing and Diving Charters.

“Every spring is usually when we have our best water quality,” said Daniel Andrews, executive director of Captains for Clean Water. “It looks really good out here.”

Which begs the question: did the lack of activity on the beach play a role in the clearing of the water?
