I think they will, but when we signed up we requested to be picked up and they agreed to do it, but said it would be cheaper to use Uber.

We are a rain or shine tour. Normal rainfall is not enough to stop us. However severe weather including lightning, high winds, and driving rainfall can delay, shorten, or cancel a tour.

Alligators are reptiles therefore cold blooded animals. Gators sightings when it is cold are not extremely common. Winter is definitely not the best time of gator sightings are what you are hoping for.
