    For a long time now i have been thinking about starting a thread about
    water temperatures around the world!

    As i'm constant dreaming about to emigrate it would be a great pleasure reading about temperatures

    Whats interesting would be both summer average and winter average!

    For example were i live in middle of sweden east coast,
    we have about 18c average summer with peek of 21c if the sun shines constantly for 3-4 week

    winters about 0-1c and often ice in the inner archipelago

    You can see water temperatures worldwide live on this interactive map:

    Oceanweather Inc: Current Marine Data

    That's the global map, but there are also more detailed maps of individual regions - just select one in the menu on the right side, and then click the icon "sea surface temperatures" at the top. And there are historical archives too, if you are interested about temperatures at any given time.

    And I also developed a Windows Vista Sidebar Gadget that shows not only the water temperature, but also wave height and direction, next tide time, wind force and direction, sunlight, live weather satellite map, some other details, and up to five webcams from your favorite beach. I posted about the gadget a year ago, so you can find it in the DB archive. I did some modification lately, and will update the gadget available on my server later when I test it little bit more. Right now it shows beautiful weather, no waves (0.3m), and still a nice water temperature of 18.1 at my diving spot near Agde, France. Just a pity I am already back in Lyon, far from the sea :(

    winter?!?!? nop it's cold and rainy most of the year high levels of humidity cause your body the cooler faster even if you have 15 ºC (wich is pretty good in winter) the all time record was 20 ºC for the atlantic cost of both countries ( excluding a southern part of Portugal wich sometimes goes up to 24 ºC) but it's like 13 ºc all the time, I think the same temp. aplies to AZORES

    I just read you post, I'm also trying to imigrate but in my case I chose cold denmark :duh let me just warn you that scandinavia is not the only cold place in EU that's a urban myth I live in Portugal and it's damm cold due to high levels of humidity this year for the time time in my life I saw snow at the swiss alpes and I was there with just a t-shirt

    If you want a spearfishing paradise go to Azores there are spearfisher who get a bonner just to ear this name and summer has a decent temp. (+25ºC) but the water is cold and with lot's of tuna,beautiful landscapes, earnings are low forget about travling on summer and big nights out,

    southern France or Spain are lovely places the earnings are good (if you have family you can give a good living to your kids there) Italy sounds like a good place at least lot's of freedivers love it :inlove

    Ah, just see it now - I meant selecting the region in the menu on the left side, not on the right as I wrote! But I guess it is not difficult to see it, even without the instructions :)

    Would that be in the sun-kissed shelter of "the English Riviera" (Torbay) or S. Devon-wide?

    hmm Cairns, Queensland, Australia.

    Winter 23 degrees C
    Summer 30 degrees C

    so pretty good all round really even the deep lake up in the hills only gets as cold as 20 on the surface and 17 at depth in the middle of winter.
