    You Should Know

    You Should Know

    You Should Know

Port Canaveral Cruise Packages

Quick Facts

Port Canaveral is beautiful no matter the time of year, so there isn't a best time to visit. The weather is nearly almost always perfect at any time of the year, but there are times to visit when there are fewer people also visiting at the same time. The majority of people opt to visit here between October and April. This is because this is the time of year that there is the best weather by definition, and everything is opened. Though many people don't visit in the summer months, Port Canaveral is still just as beautiful!

  • June to August - Low Season

    June to August consists of Port Canaveral's hottest months. You can expect temperatures of high 70s and low 80s every day, but there are so many great beaches in the area that the heat won't even matter!

  • October to April - High Season

    Unlike many destinations in the United States, most people opt to visit Port Canaveral between the months of October to April. This is because the temperature is generally in the 60s during this time, which is beautiful. Even though most people visit during this time, it's still worth taking a trip to Port Canaveral. 

  • May, September - Shoulder Season

    The fewest amount of people actually visit during May and September! The weather is great during this time, averaging 75°F in May and 80°F in September. Though it's quite warm, the coastal breeze helps to cool you off.
