Weather ? Confused

I read that "it's rainy between October and March"

According to rain statistics May,June,July has the least average rain.

When I check the weather randomly during the year there are seldomly 2 consecutive clear days ?

Like to go anytime between January to April.

Please advise:are these "short" rainfalls ?

We like to be able to swim every day (not dive) + calm sea.

Being at the equator it is very difficult to predict weather. Sometimes it can rain more in a month from the dry season comparable to one from the rainy season. You will need a lot of luck to have 5 days in a row in the dry season without rain. Most of the rainy days have few hours of sunshine also so try to not think about the weather and enjoy Paradise.

Statistically speaking the best month from the ones mentioned by you is April. Less rain, calm seas, good visibility in the water. But you never know...

April is the month when changing of the trade winds gives Seychelles much more calm weather and less thunderstorms than December. Rainfall is around 190-200 mm per month.

Definitely it is raining less in Riviera Maya, Dominican Republic or Cuba at the beginning of December than in Seychelles. If you are so afraid of weather I advise you to go to Carribean.
