When to dive in Estartit & Medes Islands

The season starts in March and ends in December. Obviously the best moment is when the water is warm and there is more life, and that is from July to September. Even though, the mid season is very peaceful, not many people in town except of diver, and the outside temperature is softer (summer is very very warm).
