When is the best time to kayak in the Everglades? Any time is a good time kayaking in the Everglades! With that said, there are some times that are better than others. Our morning tours, such as our sunrise, 7:30,8:30 and sunset tours are the best for wildlife viewing, and the rivers usually have less people on them at these times as well. While convenient for people, the 12:30 trip is usually the most crowded, at the hottest part of the day, and contains the least amount of wildlife. If early afternoon is your only available time please text or call for availability or ask us about our mid afternoon Motor Boat Eco tours.
