Sunny with very warm air temperatures, feeling like 27 °C once we account for any wind. Sea temperatures (27 °C) very warm too. Staying comfortable in the water at Dolphins won't be a problem, but wear at least a rash-vest to keep the UV off.

Below is a graph of Historical Sea Surface Temperature for Dolphins. This has been derived from analysis of two decades of oceanographic satellite measurements of nearby open water. We have calculated the average water temperature variation around the year as well as the extremes that have been observed on each date.

Dolphins 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.

Dolphins sea water temperatures peak in the range 28 to 29°C (82 to 84°F) on around the 31st of August and are at their coldest on about the 27th of February, in the range 25 to 26°C (77 to 79°F). Year round warm sea water temperatures at Dolphins mean that a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year

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

 

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
