Bermuda Weather – March

March is the last month of the off-season in Bermuda. Air temperatures are much the same as in February. The weather is still a little cool and you’ll need a light jacket in the evening. At this time of year hotels are offering good rates and airfares are at their lowest.

The water temperature is 20°C (68°F), too cold for most people for swimming and snorkelling. Visibility remains high at 150 to 200 feet, so diving with a full wetsuit is possible.

Daylight Savings Time begins on the second Sunday in March. The sun rises around 7.30 am and sets around 7.30 pm. Detailed sunrise and sunset times can be found here.

Seven hours of sunshine can be expected each day, around the annual average. Rainfall is just below the annual norm. Expect around four inches this month.

Events in March include the Bermuda International Film Festival. The Department of Tourism puts together a programme of smaller events (cookery demonstrations, walking tours, military ceremonies etc.) for low season visitors. Visit their website and search the events calendar for more information.

March also marks the start of the Bermuda’s whale watching season. Humpback whales pass close to the island on their way to the north Atlantic feeding grounds. Companies and organisations offering whale watching trips include Blue Water Divers, BAMZ, Fantasea Bermuda, the Island Tour Centre, and the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute.

It’s also the last month of Bermuda’s seven-month lobster season. Make sure you visit one of the island’s seafood restaurants before then end of the month if you want to try Bermuda’s spiny variety.
