When's the best time to go to the Falkland Islands?

The best time to go to the Falkland Islands is from late October to April. The summer months of November to February have the best weather and are prime nesting time for the archipelago's many bird colonies and young seals and sea lions can be seen. October is the main breeding time for the wildlife, and from mid-November through December, pods of killer whales can be seen hunting in the shallow waters near the seal colonies - an exciting spectacle for any wildlife enthusiast. Expect some windy conditions year-round and pack a waterproof jacket regardless of the season you are visiting. Visiting from May to September is generally not recommended due to the wet and windy conditions.
