Whats the sea like at the moment off Punta cana?

We are heading over to Punta cana in the next few days and wonder about the sea warmth and conditions at the moment?

What about the general weather?

Thanks

Sea is beautiful...warm, but not as warm as the pool which is like bath water!

Weather gorgeous...some rain, it sure pelts it down! But only a couple of times! Don't worry...enjoy!

til now july weather been just perfect, typical for this time of the year.

inshore waters are calm,

offshore waters are on their usual 5-6ft level,

no strong winds.

only exception in case of wind been yesterday morning,

under a far away very slight influence by a tropical wave which moved south of the Mona Channel throu the caribbean Sea along the Isnads southern coast, so yesterday morning we felt the wind with some higher gusts, but nothing exceeded 15-16knots as a maximum, the whole day been sunny, perfect for a beach stay.

like PC Mike mentioned above we "might" get influenced around mid week by an approaching 2nd tropical wave actually located east of the windward islands moving west to cross those lil islands and expected to enter the Caribbean Sea.

nothing to worry about,

no development expected by now,

most likely we will feel zero effect of it in Punta Cana, clouds or rain will most likely pass along the south coast, Bayahibe, La Romana, typical for such weather this time of the year, most of that music plays in the Caribbean Sea on our south, not in Punta Cana itself.

welcome to Paradise

Just to say thanks to all for the replies and reassurances.

We got back on Thursday and had a great time. The seas were indeed calm and warm and not a tropical storm in sight.

The kids particularly loved wading out and feeding the fish at low tide and snorkling over the reefs.

Weather was hot and humid and there weren't any days when you couldn't sit on the beach or by the pool all day.

thanks again.
