If you plan to take an airboat tour on the Peace River, the best time to do so is during the “dry season.” Why, you ask? During this time, the humidity takes a dip, temperatures become more pleasant, and there is less rainfall. These factors create the perfect conditions for an airboat tour. It’s like hitting the weather jackpot! Read on for why this time of year is the best time to plan your trip!

What is “Dry Season”?

Florida’s dry season stretches from November to April and is a fantastic time for tourists and adventurers alike. The weather shifts from the humid, sweltering summer months to the drier, milder winter, and it is a welcomed change! 

Daytime temperatures during the winter months typically range from the mild 60s to comfortable highs in the 70s. This moderate climate creates the perfect balance, allowing visitors to enjoy outdoor activities without extreme heat!

What does that mean for your airboat tour experience?

  • Lower humidity: You won’t sweat buckets while cruising the river!
  • Lower temperatures: You can enjoy your tour without feeling like you’re baking under the sun!
  • Reduced chances of rain: Your tour won’t get rained out!
  • Clear skies: Optimal visibility to soak in all the natural beauty surrounding you.
  • Spot Wildlife: Less rainfall means better chances of spotting the vast array of wildlife that call Florida’s marshes and swamps home. From graceful herons to majestic alligators basking in the sun, the opportunities for wildlife sightings abound during this time.
