Caribbean (General) Seasonal Dive Planner

Temperatures between summer and winter don't normally vary more than 5°F (1 or 2°C) in the Caribbean. The average temperature is about 80°F (27°C) year-round. Naturally, southern islands tend to be a little warmer than the northern ones. For example, Curacao’s southern location keeps its summer average at 83°F (28°C) and winter at 80°F (27°C), while the northern Bahamas (inc. Nassau) are north of the Caribbean in the Atlantic and vary from a summer average of 80°F (27°C) down to a cool 69°F (20°C) average in the winter. There is a wet and dry season, with most rain falling between May/June and October/November.

However, location and topography, such as rain shadows created by mountains, can play an important role in local weather conditions. Keep in mind that those cold fronts in the U.S. that dip down from the north can keep right on dipping to most of the northern islands, bringing cooler temperatures and rough water in their wake.

Two other important factors to consider in the Caribbean are tourist season and hurricane season. The off-season for tourism is roughly mid-April to mid-December. It can mean much lower prices (up to 60 percent less) than in the busy high season for some destinations. Hurricane season runs from June through November, with September the most likely month, but weather patterns are less certain than they were.
