You may be at home wondering what are the people up to in Rocky Point on a Saturday afternoon in the middle of January? We are out walking, wading, playing and even swimming on this gorgeous January afternoon. When the sun is shining the water feels good even in the middle of the winter. Many folks, (not just the Canadians who are accustomed to the cold) are out enjoying the ocean right now.
The ocean temperatures in Rocky Point are surprisingly friendly all year around. This makes us the ideal town for water enthusiasts. My favorite water activities are Stand Up Paddle-boarding, swimming, snorkeling, digging clams, and playing ball with my dogs in the ocean. Other favorite local water activities include kayaking, windsurfing, parasailing, fishing, and scuba diving.
Just compare our average annual water temperatures to those of San Diego so you can get a feel for how awesome we have it here in Rocky Point.
