Going on an Airboat Tour in the Everglades During the Wet Season 

airboat tourIt’s June right now, which means we are in the middle of the wet season in Florida and the Everglades. The summer wet season stretches from May to November. 

Before heading out into the Everglades on an airboat tourit’s good to be prepared in knowing what to expect of the Everglades and environment during this wet season. 

  • Average temperatures can be as high at 90 degrees. 
  • Humidity can be over 90 percent. 
  • Heat index can be over 100 degrees. 
  • On most days, you can expect an afternoon thunderstorm. These storms usually pass by quickly. 
  • Weather can be unpredictable (more than usual) due to torrential rain and thunderstorms – it’s hard to say when they’ll arrive and for how long. They can appear out of nowhere on the radar! 
  • It’s harder to see wildlife during this time of year because of the wetter conditions, higher water levels, and high temperatures. 
  • Insects are in high numbers, including mosquitoes, so it’s best you come equipped with bug spray or clothing to minimize the amount of exposed skin. 
  • Some facilities and areas in the Everglades may be closed or partially closed during this season. 
  • Less people visit the Everglades during this time of year, which makes it easier to explore and it is quieter. 
  • The end of the wet season is also hurricane season.  

Explore the Everglades by Airboat During the Wet Season 

Come out and explore the Everglades during the wet season. It’s a great way to cool down as you feel the breeze on your face as you glide across the waters.  

If you want to be on the safe side, book an airboat tour in the morning to avoid storms and the hottest weather.  

Remember to come prepared with bug spray, hats, sunglasses, and water, so you can have a comfortable trip.  

Unfortunately, you may not see as much wildlife as you would during the dry season, but they’re still plenty of creatures around and it’s not surprising to see alligators and birds 

It’s a great time of year to experience the Everglades without big crowds.
