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.

Went on the Jungle Queen tour in Ft. Lauderdale in October 2017 with my three sisters and Mom. It was recommended to us by the owner of the house we rented. I honestly never would have gone on this without that recommendation but it was one of the best evenings we had. Kept getting surprised by how well it was... More

Friends had told us to find 90 minutes to do this boat tour, and it was well worth it. Our narrator, Greg, was knowledgeable, funny and personable. To see all of the amazing houses and yachts along the waterway was astounding. Such beauty...and obviously wealth. Great for families, couples and individuals. A must see.

The tour of the waterfront mansions was entertaining and informative. The dinner was a BBQ buffet of decent quality and a great value. The show ranged from a decent piano playing singer to a really hokey ventriloquist act that I could have done without. Overall, very much worth doing.

the boat ride was most enjoyable and the sight of houses on the river side was fun and knowledgeable. the tour and dinner on the island was worth every minute of it and the barbecue ribs were sooooo delicious. the variety show had comedy by two comedians, it was an evening of so much fun and relaxation!

We were afraid this might be a bit hokey but it turn out really great. The tour was funny and knowledgeable and the tour itself was great. The weather for our cruise was perfect but it might not be something you would want to do it was raining or cold. The food (we did the dinner cruise) was very good... More

You need to experience this cruise- perfect setting, perfect price! We took a cruise through the inter coastal and had an informative commentator providing us with fun facts and info about the rich and famous! We then embarked on a hidden island filled with animals and tiki huts. We were greeted by the friendliest staff who ran around just to... More

I have been coming to Ft. Lauderdale for several years and have never been on the Jungle Queen and this visit I finally remedied that egregious error! It was simple old-fashioned fun. Nothing fancy or fun, just a lovely slow ride down the New River to their island filled with monkeys, lemurs, birds, alligators, etc. The three hour ride was... More

My husband and I took the three hour riverboat ride to celebrate our recent wedding anniversary. Bought the tickets via Groupon to save money :-) You park next door for $7 at Bahia Mar which is a good deal. Get there early to board if you want certain seats. By the time we got on, the only window seat left... More

Didn't really know what to expect (had a Groupon-check for one) but had a relaxing and totally interesting experience on our 3 hour cruise. We learned so much about the S. Florida "elite" on this trip thanks to Gary, our narrator. Trip wasn't crowded, the private island is entertaining and very reasonable for food if you need snack or lunch.... More
