Frequently Asked Questions
What Hotels do you service?
I cover all Miami Beach up to Bal Harbour, most Miami hotels including the airport hotels, along with Coral Gables and Coconut Grove. Guests coming from farther away I always find somewhere to meet.
When can Manatees be seen?
Manatees are guaranteed November thru March, maybe April. I have a dozen spots to see them along my city tour route, some up close and others from bridges looking down, great for filming.
What's the difference between the Half Day and All Day Everglades?
The Half Day is an airboat plus a few gator and bird spots in Big Cypress, The All Day continues farther to the Ten Thousand Islands for a boat ride, usually the highlight of the day, plus more bird and manatee spots in Fakahatchee state park. The Half Day I recommend only for guests with limited time or when there is a small craft advisory. The Everglades website page has more details on the difference.
What should we bring on the All Day Everglades ?
Bugs? Sunscreen? I have both. Food? Lunch is STONE CRABS in the Stone Crab capital of the world, Everglades City. Burgers, shrimp, oysters, alligator and a wide variety of freshly caught fish also served.
If we have seen Wynwood and Manatees already, what stops do you recommend ?
My city tour page has a dozen spots listed as alternatives to Wynwood and Calle 8. Here’s a short list:
South Pointe Park
The De la Cruz art collection.
Key Biscayne Lighthouse
Fairchild Tropical Gardens
Barnacle State Park
