When Is The Best Time Of Year To Experience Florida Keys Water based activities?
Now unless you are the hardiest of souls and do not worry about cold water, you maybe wondering the best time to attempt some Florida Keys water sportsWell, although the Florida Keys land temperatures stay around about 85 degrees all year, the same cannot be said about the water temperatures.
Really the best time to venture out and onto the waters is around August time when the waters are at their warmest.
If you were going to jump in and attempt some water sports activities around January and February, although it will still be very pleasant walking around the streets, the water temperatures will have dropped about twenty degrees.
So even with a wetsuit on you will get chilly.
Expect around 60 degrees in January and you won’t get a shock as you jump in.
