We had a short trip to southern Florida, and this excursion was truly the best way to experience both Miami and the Everglades in a matter of hours.
Our pilot, Adriel, was a super cool guy, and the type of guide that you'd remember as equally as the experience itself. He was friendly, easy-going, and very knowledgeable about the region, the aircraft, and low-altitude flights.
Our take-offs and landings were seamless on both ends of tour. The flight along the Miami skyline and beaches was super fun, and the airboat portion of the trip was equally as educational and entertaining as everything else.
One note worth throwing in.... This excursion was literally the last thing we were doing before heading to the airport to catch our flights home, so we arrived at our "meeting spot" (random parking lot near the water), via an UBER with our luggage in hand. There was not a company office available to store our luggage in while we were on the tour. Thankfully, our pilot was able to accommodate our two carry-on suitcases and two backpacks in the very small space behind our seats on the plane, otherwise I don't know where we would have left it for the duration of the tour.
