Which place to visit the "real"Everglades from Naples

We (Me , DH , DD14 and DS11) will finish our Florida trip off with 2 nights in Naples and would like to experience the Everglades.

Where do you recommend we go and what should we do?

We will pass Shark Valley on our way back to Miami on the last day but won't have a lot of time there.

We are open to all suggestions but it has to fit into 6-8 hours and should cost no more than $150 for the family.

We do have a car.
