We have calculated the average water temperature variation around the year as well as the extremes that have been observed on each date.

Islas Marietas 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.

Islas Marietas sea temperatures peak in the range 28 to 31°C (82 to 88°F) on around the 29th of July and are at their minimum on about the 10th of March, in the range 22 to 25°C (72 to 77°F). Year round warm sea temperatures at Islas Marietas climb to their highest in late July. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. Islas Marietas sea temperatures are always warm but dip to their minimum in early to mid March. You'll need a 2mm neoprene top or a shorty at dawn/dusk or if it's windy.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Islas Marietas 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 Islas Marietas. 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.
