Best Time of Year to See Wildlife on Airboat Rides

 Best Time of Year to See Wildlife on Airboat Rides - Everglades Holiday Park

Everglades Holiday Park knows that no matter what time of year you take an airboat ride through the Florida Everglades, you are guaranteed to be impressed by the breathtaking beauty and exotic wildlife sightings. There is no bad time to visit the Everglades, since most wildlife is spotted year-round. However, you might have better luck with certain animals depending on the time of year. Animal and bird sightings vary based on many factors: time of year, water levels and conditions, weather, area food supply, and the environment.

The dry season in the Everglades typically runs from December through April. During the dry season, the water levels drop, which traps fish in shallow waters and makes them easier to spot and harder for them to elude their predators. An Everglades airboat ride this time of year will guarantee plenty of fish and bird sightings.

The rainy season runs May through November, and can be extremely hot. The alligator, everyone’s favorite Everglades predator, can be spotted all year, but especially during hotter, wetter seasons. The months right before the rainy season are when alligators experience an active mating period, so during this time of year, visitors can spot baby alligators becoming acclimated with their new territory. Alligators and crocodiles enjoy sunning themselves in the heat, so the afternoon might be the best time of day to spot these reptiles.

There is no bad time of year to go on an Everglades airboat ride. Visitors must keep in mind that the animals are living in their natural habitats, so sightings are highly likely, but not guaranteed. Our professional airboat captains will guide you to the areas with the best conditions for wildlife sightings.

Airboat Rides are Fun and Addicting for Florida Locals

South Florida is one of the country’s top vacation destinations, with millions of people heading here each year to relax under the warm sun and live like a local for a few days. The booming tourist economy offers so many daytrip activities, you might have a hard time deciding which one to choose from. Here’s a tip: a good indication of whether something is worth it or not is to see if the locals are doing it too - and you can guarantee that South Florida locals love airboat rides.

You don’t have to convince South Florida locals to glide across the sawgrass and appreciate the nature and wildlife of the Everglades. Many Floridians have their own airboats, but those who don’t head to Everglades Holiday Park year-round to experience one of South Florida’s famous airboat rides through the giant, sawgrass and marsh.

Just like our airboat rides at Everglades Holiday Park, many Florida locals hit the water seven days a week. Any given day, any time of year, you will find the natives packing up a cooler and heading out to the Everglades with family and friends to enjoy a day out in the heart of the million-acre subtropical wilderness. Florida locals use their airboats for many reasons: some enjoy the fishing, some say it’s a better version of cruising through the Atlantic intercostal since there’s no traffic, and some love the tranquility that Everglades airboat rides provide. Airboat rides in the Everglades are the perfect vacation activity for visitors too, and the wide-open space and fresh air make locals feel as if they are on their own mini vacation as well.
