Destin 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.

Destin sea water temperatures peak in the range 28 to 31°C (82 to 88°F) on around the 14th of July and are at their lowest on about the 11th of February, in the range 16 to 20°C (61 to 68°F). Year round warm sea water temperatures at Destin climb to their warmest in mid July. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. The lowest seasonal sea water temperatures at Destin in the second week of February lend themselves to a 4/3mm wetsuit or a 3/2mm suit and 3mm neoprene boots.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Destin 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 Destin. Refer to our detailed weather forecasts for this information.
