When you take an airboat tour, you may be wondering if you will see an alligator along the way. While there is no guarantee that you will spot a gator every time an airboat goes out, there are specific times of the year where many alligators are spotted. The Everglades wet season lasts from June to November, and during these warmer months are typically when more gators are found. Since alligators are cold blooded, they tend to sunbathe on the Everglades banks in order to stay warm.
