I went recently with a company called MiamiTours. I found them on the internet. The half day was about $50 bucks, but they can pick you up from South Beach. It is very difficult to go via public transportation. You would need a car. It is good if you are short of time, but the drawback is still that it is a tour. It is not the way I would have preferred to do it but was short of time. In hindsight, I would have rented a car myself and driven. Car rentals in Florida are ridiculously cheap, much cheaper than the tour. Plus you have freedom to do what you want.

Rent a car. I just did a quick check and found rentals as low as $18 bucks a day, greatly eliminating the hassle of doing it by public transportation. With the car you could pop down to 10,000 Islands just off Everglades City. I haven't been but have heard it as close to an unspoiled area as there is left in the Everglades.
