3 Reasons to Take an Airboat Ride in the Fall

3 Reasons to Take an Airboat Ride in the Fall

As Everglades experts, our team at Everglades Holiday Park is frequently asked, “when is the best time of year to take an airboat ride in Florida?”. With a tropical climate and seemingly endless sunshine, there’s really no bad time to hop on one of our state-of-the-art airboats and fly across the waters of the Everglades. Rather than noticeable changes in the air and color of the leaves, the seasonal changes in the Everglades mean variation in animal activity and water levels. There are, however, some perks of taking an airboat ride in the fall months, and here’s why:

1. The Weather

With a nickname like “the Sunshine State”, it’s no surprise that South Florida temperatures can get pretty hot most of the year. However, fall in South Florida means temperatures drop a few degrees, making conditions out on the water a little more comfortable – especially for those who aren’t used to the heat like South Florida natives. The drop-in temperature is usually accompanied by an enjoyable breeze that helps keep you cool and away from any pests while you’re out exploring the thriving waters of the Everglades.

2. The Animals

Seasonal variations can affect the frequency in which certain animals are spotted. With cooler temperatures and lower water levels during the fall and winter months, visitors might have a better chance at spotting some of the Everglades most famous animals. The American alligator, for example, regularly sunbathes on the shores during these months to regulate its body temperature.

3. Less Crowds

As one of the most popular summertime attractions, South Florida experiences a major influx of visitors during the summer months. In fall, however, when kids are back in school and families are traveling less, you may enjoy fewer crowds at our South Florida alligator park.

South Florida with it’s ideal climate creates a perfect atmosphere for visitors year-round, however visitors might enjoy an airboat ride in the fall a little more! Learn more about airboat tours on our website, and book your tour today!   This entry was posted in Everglades Holiday Park Blog, on .
