It's not often that you find yourself crouched at the open door of a flying airplane, heart pounding and wind whipping by, while waiting to jump out, deploy your own parachute, and float gently to the ground. This thrill-seeking experience is available to first-time and returning divers at Skydive Spaceland, one of the country's largest skydiving training centers which has been helping people achieve lifelong dreams on a regular basis for more than 20 years. Tandem dives pair newbies with experienced instructors, and skydiving lessons teach students how to take the plunge on their own in as little as one week. Skydiving experiences can also be given as a gift or used to cross an item off a bucket list. An on-site pro shop sells skydiving T-shirts and souvenirs that prove you've conquered your fear of heights.
From up to 13,500 feet in the air, skydivers plunge out of Miami Skydiving Center's airplanes, accelerate to 120 miles per hour, and take in scenic bird's-eye views of the Everglades, the Atlantic Ocean, and the giant gorillas terrorizing downtown. But before they enjoy this unique perspective, divers first learn the basics during on-ground tandem diving instruction. Instructors use this initial jump to get new divers excited about and familiar with the process of skydiving and the essential safety procedures. They then teach committed diving pupils to skydive solo with an accelerated freefall program. And as their students progress further, the instructors can introduce them to more advanced techniques such as belly flying and skyboarding.
The Everglades are known for their sawgrass prairies and tropical trees, but there's another key feature of this region that's completely invisible to the naked eye. The shallow waters retain heat through the night and produce thermal updrafts during the day—which is when Miami Gliders comes in. The updrafts allow the FAA-certified pilots, their passengers and students, and the entire glider to soar thousands of feet above areas, including the Everglades, Florida Keys, and the Redlands. Once towed up in the air, the pilots give lessons or point out sightseeing features, with plenty of opportunities to snap photos and take video. They also give intro flights in regular airplanes, complete with engines and tanks full of fizzy lifting drink.

Miami Nice Tours doesn't just cover Miami, but also Key West, Orlando, and the Everglades. On city tours, guests may be driven to sites such as Little Havana in Miami, Ernest Hemingway's house in Key West, Disney World or the Kennedy Space Center in Orlando, or an alligator show in the Everglades. And just as tours don't confine themselves to one city, they also don't confine themselves to just land. Water-based activities include cruises in glass-bottom boats, swimming with dolphins, and paddleboarding. There are even helicopter tours, which let passengers view oceanfront estates and other sights from hundreds of feet above the water.
