The Bahamas has a tropical monsoon climate with relatively consistent temperatures throughout the course of the year. Summertime temperatures reach about 32 degrees Celsius and the winter months have daytime temperatures between 21 and 26 degrees.
For scuba diving the only advice is to maybe avoid the month of September and Oktober as these have a relative high risk for hurricanes.
