A "Must" in Fort Lauderdale for 78 years! Experience a little...

A "Must" in Fort Lauderdale for 78 years! Experience a little southern hospitality on this "All You Wish to Eat" BBQ Ribs, Chicken and Shrimp Dinner Cruise served family style with all the trimmings. Enjoy a pleasant and humorous commentary by the Captain about the many interesting sights and beautiful homes you'll see as we cruise up the New River, past Millionaire's Row, en route to our tropical isle to enjoy dinner and a hilarious Variety Show. The show is followed by a moonlit ride back to the dock. More than 18 million guests over the years have enjoyed the fun-filled, relaxing evening aboard. A unique evening you'll talk about, laugh about and always remember. There is nothing else like it.

Jungle Queen also offers fully narrated daily Sightseeing Cruises up the historic New River past plush waterfront homes, downtown Fort Lauderdale, a bit of the Everglades and a stop-off at our tropical isle to see rare birds, monkeys and an alligator exhibition. The only true way to see Fort Lauderdale.

The captain sure does know his homes and is a joker about the lack of ppl in these million dollar homes. The boat ride is beautiful and relaxing. You get to see Fort Lauderdale in a different way. See the highways you drive in from underneath and see draw bridges being raised. If you look closely over board at the... More

Great last minute trip! JQ left the dock at 7:45 PM on a sightseeing trip (narrated and quite entertaining to see all the homes and yachts that line the river) up the New river that culminated in full service dinner followed by a very amusing 4 act show at their private isle. Food was good and all that you could... More

I am new to Ft Lauderdale and tried this due to a Groupon from a friend. We did the 4 hour dinner cruise and we weren't disappointed. The narrator did a great job of pointing out whose house was whose while interjecting corny, but funny, humor. Once we arrived at the island we were treated to outstanding (and unlimited) ribs,...

I went on the Jungle Queen with my 13 year old son. It was a calm relaxing boat ride with an informative tour guide who pointed out houses of the rich and famous. The ride was 60 min, then we stopped at a private "island" where there were various exotic wildlife and we got to see an alligator show. The... More

It's not something I would have signed up for on my own--but it was part of another tour--enjoyed the tour leader's knowledge about the homes and history of the area--got to wave to the local millionaire, Wayne H who was sitting on his lawn area. Not the most exciting tour--but a nice way to pass 90 minutes.

I received two tickets form my daughter for Christmas for this cruise It was a great experience. The staff was great and the entertainment was fantastic. The tour guides were extremely funny and the food was great for the price.

I went out with my mom and dad to show then the neighbor hood but I was a little disappointed to be honest. The boat is nice and clean and they sell drinks on board so no problem there at all. We got some nice seating on upper deck and the host tried his best to make it a fun... More

Even though I live here, I've always wanted to try the Jungle Queen tour. It was relaxing and enjoyable. The cashier could have been friendlier, but the ships crew were fine. My Groupon coupon saved me a few dollars. A good value.

Took this excursion with my wife, an 11 year old boy, an almost 7 year old girl, and a senior. Fun was had by all. Some suggestions: 1. Use Groupon. There is significant savings if you book through groupon. It seems almost all local guests know to do this as becomes evident during comedy routine when jokes are made about... More
