Cabo Blanco Water Temperature Graph

All of the graphs for the surf breaks presented on Surf-Forecast.com are on the same scale to enable comparison between locations around the world.

Cabo Blanco sea temperatures peak in the range 23 to 29°C (73 to 84°F) on around the 21st of February and are at their lowest on about the 8th of September, in the range 17 to 23°C (63 to 73°F). Cabo Blanco sea temperatures are always warm reach their warmest in mid to late February. You'll need a 2mm neoprene top or a shorty at dawn/dusk or if it's windy. The lowest Cabo Blanco sea temperatures in early to mid September require something like a 3/2mm fully sealed wetsuit.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Cabo Blanco can vary by several degrees compared with these open water averages. This is especially true after heavy rain, close to river mouths or after long periods of strong offshore winds. Offshore winds cause colder deep water to replace surface water that has been warmed by the sun. Air temperature, wind-chill and sunshine should also be considered before deciding on the kind of wetsuit needed to stay warm when surfing at Cabo Blanco.
