Remember, it is your responsibility prior to snorkeling
or diving to check the weather and sea conditions - do not
snorkel or dive in conditions beyond your ability.
The area experiences pleasant warm temperatures year round, with sunny skies, minimal rainfall and steady easterly trade winds. 85% of the time the prevailing direction is between north-east in winter to south-east in summer. Wind velocity is stronger during the winter months and weakest during late summer. The average air temperature varies from a low of 28°C/82°F from December to February, to a high of 31°C/88°F from July to September.
The average sea water temperature varies from a low of 25°C/77°F from January to April, to a high of 28°C/82°F in September.
Visibility - All this means is that you will experience very pleasant
snorkeling and scuba diving conditions with excellent visibility. This will be as much as 120 feet or 36 meters in very calm conditions.
Northerly Swells and
Tropical Storms - Northerly swells are generated mainly by
North Atlantic storms, usually between December and March.
Tropical storms generally move East to West (although on
occasion we get one West to East), usually between June
and November. These conditions do affect certain snorkel
and dive sites, but usually only for a few days.
