Shark Valley tram AND airboat ride - one or other or both?

We are in Miami for a few more days and then travelling to Naples for 5 nights. I'm wondering whether to head to Shark Valley for the tram tour whilst we are here in Miami and then also take an airboat ride whilst we are in Naples or just do one or the other? Are the two experiences and areas significantly different?

The two are quite different, so I guess I would do both. if I had to do only one, I'd go with the tram tour over the airboat, You'll see a lot more wildlife on the tram or by walking the trails. Airboats are noisy and scare the wildlife.

You could set off early in the morning to enjoy Shark Valley and then drive on to Coopertown to take an airboat ride afterward. As RK said, they are very different experiences but you can do both in a day.
