Is there a preferred color of light for the Gulf?

Its a function of cost, power (lumens), and quality. I'd go for the highest quality, most powerful lights you can afford. Look at lumitec or lumishore. Lumitec is a great product at a fairly reasonable price. I really like the Lumitec SeablazeX2. These lights come in full spectrum RGBW and White/Blue. The cost isn't too crazy either. It depends on what you are looking to do with the underwater LED lights. If it is just for the dock or while catting around, go with whatever color floats your boat. If you are fishing the rigs at night for tuna, I prefer blue.

Light with longer wavelengths is absorbed more quickly than that with shorter wavelengths. Because of this, the higher energy light with short wavelengths, such as blue, is able to penetrate more deeply. Then you need to factor in the # of lumens the lights will be producing.

CP3 is a Landlubber (+10 to -10)
I went with the lumitec seablaze x2 in the full spectrum RGBW and have been very happy with them. I can have whatever color I want based on what I’m doing and water conditions/clarity. White/blue/green are used depending on water conditions.

I have blue coastal night lights under the boat they work great for the money and have lasted about 5 seasons.

But I really like my hydro glo or sword magnet lights I have a lawn mower battery and use it with alligator clips work great all night and I can drop it about ten feet below the surface it is green.
