Bermuda Weather in December

 
December is the time in Bermuda when the winter starts setting in. But it's still warmer than many places in the U.S, Canada and Europe. The cruise ships are long gone from the ports resulting in low tourists in December. And the island is ready to be enjoyed in its full originality. 
 
The December temperature usually varies between 70 degree high to 63 degree low on an average. You should use a light jacket in early mornings and evenings. 
 
The average air temperature during the day remains generally at 66.7 degree Fahrenheit. The water or the sea temperature averages 67.5 degree during December. The water visibility is excellent during this time and ranges from 150 to 200 feet (45 to 55 meters). 
 
 
 
The time is ideal for water sports like scuba diving and snorkeling, although you may need to wear wet suits. Here is a picture of how a typical December day looks in Bermuda.
