El Astillero sea temperatures peak in the range 28 to 30°C (82 to 86°F) on around the 10th of June and are at their lowest on about the 3rd of February, in the range 24 to 29°C (75 to 84°F).

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at El Astillero 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 El Astillero.
