Q. Holiday and Peak Season
- Peak season or High season is considered from November to April. This simply means that this is the busiest time of the year for the Port of Miami so patience is key. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and Spring Break season does vary shuttle times. Around this time of the year there are about 15,000+ people traveling in/out of the Port of Miami. We always suggest dropping off additional passengers and luggage off at pier/port first and just sending the driver to check-in for your parking reservation. Customers without luggage have priority for the shuttle (always).
