Galapagos Water Temp in Jan

We are going to the Central Island for the New Year and was planning on scuba diving. Anyone know what to expect for temps around the Central Islands at depth? Thx for any help

Dear RD,

no one can give you a specific answer to your questions as temperatures can vary significantly from day to day - but you should expect something in the range of 22-24 degrees I would say. Conditions for a weak El Nino are in place according to NOAA - and current surface temperatures are about 1/2 degree above normal (celsius). So, no need for a wetsuite for a casual swim, but for diving, one would be appreciated.

Warmest regards,

Heather Blenkiron
