Weather in Sarasota
Always keep in mind the weather when planning your yacht rental experience. Sarasota is an ideal location for a yacht charter, either while on vacation or “staycation” because of the wonderful weather patterns. Located just above the tropical divide, the winters range in the 70°s and summers in the 90°s, there's no wrong time to visit. While it may rain frequently in Sarasota, the storms are almost always scattered and very short in duration, often times only lasting a few minutes and then the sun is shining again. If you're traveling to Sarasota in the cooler months of the year, be sure to pack some layers to wear while on your boating trip, especially if you plan to go yachting in the evening. If you're traveling during the summer months, remember to stay hydrated and take some extra precautions when it comes to sun care.
When planning to rent a yacht in Sarasota, your Captain will keep an eye on the weather patterns. The Captain will warn you of any weather that could cause your yacht charter to be cancelled, rescheduled, or departure time pushed back. Safety is always our top priority.
