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

Gilligans Water Temperature Graph

All of the graphs for the surf breaks presented on are on the same scale to enable comparison between locations around the world.

Gilligans water temperatures peak in the range 29 to 30°C (84 to 86°F) on around the 16th of May and are at their coldest on about the 4th of October, in the range 25 to 30°C (77 to 86°F). Year round warm water temperatures at Gilligans 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 Gilligans 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 Gilligans.
