Fort Myers Beach Weather


One of the most common questions our guides are asked is “what is the weather like on Fort Myers Beach?” Our answer is… it changes seasonally, and even changes day-to-day, or hour-to-hour! As Floridians, we deal with constant weather changes all year-round. One thing we can do is predict the weather based on the season. On Fort Myers Beach, we do not experience the traditional seasons of spring, summer, fall and winter. Our seasons are categorized as the rainy and the dry seasons.


The dry season traditionally held throughout the months of November through April. The best thing about the dry season is the large numbers of animals that are visible during this time of year. Expect to witness a large number of migratory birds like the American white pelican, Franklin’s gull and the swallow-tailed kite as well as a number of happy, sunning reptiles like American alligators! This period of time is characterized by a lack of rain and a bounty of sunshine and mild Florida temperatures. It is the perfect time for a wildlife lover to experience the beauty of natural Southwest Florida.


In comparison, the wet season allows our guests to experience the wet and wild side of our area. During the wet season, Fort Myers Beach hosts stunningly humid temperatures with plenty of rain that all our native wildlife enjoy and thrive in. Afternoon storms roll in with an undefinable beauty that you must be here to experience. Trust us, the wet season which takes place during the months of May through October truly brings the tropics to Southwest Florida and Fort Myers Beach. It is during this time that some of the most show stopping sunsets of the year occur. Plus, because our area’s “off-season” occurs during this time, guests that join us during the wet season enjoy smaller crowds and more intimate cruise experiences.
