I booked the 1.5-hour private tour with transport from our in the hotel in south beach. Our driver arrived on time and was a great guy (giving us some tips for our upcoming cruise) and stopping for a bathroom break before the airboat.When we arrived we were told how it was the dry season and if it I didn’t rain soon they wouldn’t be able to operate tours for a while – we were very happy we didn’t miss out but shocked how low the water was in some areas. Obviously, as wild animals, the company can’t guarantee gator sightings but we saw so many we lost count – easily 50 gators – we even saw some baby ones hanging out near the airboat before we even left! Our guide really knew the area it was worth the money for the private tour – recommend these guys if you are looking at visiting the glades.
