Los Patos water temperatures peak in the range 28 to 30°C (82 to 86°F) on around the 4th of September and are at their minimum on about the 1st of March, in the range 26 to 27°C (79 to 81°F).

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Los Patos 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 Los Patos.
