July Key West Vacations
July offers great options for family summer vacations in Key West.

Lobster fans will be in their element later in the month, when Florida Keys mini lobster season kicks off and boats set sail from nearby Garrison Bight Marina. There are two Florida lobster seasons, the two-day mini season and the eight-month regular lobster season. You can also discover exciting onsite and offsite Key West watersports activities in July, with "Super Discounts" for our guests.

Key West Weather in July
At the peak of summer, the average high is 89° F (32° C). Luckily Key West doesn't have any super-highways or urban sprawl to radiate the sun's heat. Not only that, but our islands are surrounded by cooling ocean waters. Sunset Wise Floridians from the mainland flock to the Keys on steamy weekends because the air is usually a few degrees cooler here. The water temperature might be in the mid-80s (30° C) but the sea is nevertheless refreshing for swimming, snorkeling or diving. Afternoon thunderstorms are common in the summer months but the rain rarely sticks around long enough to spoil an entire day.
You might be wondering about the Atlantic hurricane season, which can affect the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States as well as the Caribbean and the Bahamas. The official hurricane season begins June 1st and ends on November 30th. Traditionally, the highest potential for storms is between August 15th and October 15th. However, the daily weather during this period tends to be some of the most beautiful of the year. Parrot Key Resort offers a hurricane clause to protect our guests so please inquire when dialing our call center. No named hurricanes or tropical storms affected the Florida Keys in 2013 and 2014.

What to Wear in July
Our clothing style throughout the year is "Keys Casual" and most restaurants do not require a dress code. Pack your summer gear, including flip flops, a swim suit, shorts and a light shirt, but it's always wise to bring light layers that you can add to your wardrobe when needed. If you go boating for example, bring a light jacket. July sees high temperatures so make sure to bring light, cool clothing. Don't forget your sunglasses, aloe or after sun cream, sun screen and a hat to protect you against UV rays. For your convenience, a Walgreens store is located adjacent to Parrot Key Resort if you forget any warm weather essentials.
