Although the islands are located in Ecuador, the temperature of the ocean varies greatly, between 6 and 28 degrees depending on the season. Its weather is determined by the temperature of the ocean currents, which generates microclimates that alter the particular environments of each island. The islands in the same way face drastic climate changes and each month has its peculiarities.
The time spans from January to March are the months with the highest temperature and humidity, March being the warmest month of the year. During this season there are lots of plants, and the pleasant water temperature is ideal for water sports. In the period from July to September we observe smaller precipitations and the islands are less humid, but cooler, the temperature of the water is reduced considerably, being the perfect season to observe more aquatic life, since the animals have preference for the icy waters.
