At 57 degrees, 24 minutes north latitude,
Kodiak’s summer climate is similar to that of coastal
Washington and Oregon. It can be hot and sunny for days at
a time, then cloud over and rain cats and dogs for a week.
Expect temperatures anywhere between a rainy, windy 50 degrees
F and a sunny 75 degrees F. Bring clothing that will allow
you to dress in layers and remain comfortable no matter what
the weather is doing.
Bring a warm fleece or wool jacket and pants
for chilly mornings and evening. A lightweight, breathable
Gore-Tex jacket is a must. Bring jeans and shorts, comfortable
sneakers or deck shoes, and shirts that you can layer under
fleece or a warm sweater. Warm socks and thin poly sock liners
will keep your feet dry and let you add or take off layers
depending on the temperature.
There are no laundry facilities near the
dive site, but you don’t want to over-pack. Bring clothes
that are versatile, comfortable, and that you don’t
mind wearing more than once!
