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.

I was skeptical about this, since we live here. But, the tour was great fun. Loved hearing about all the expensive homes along the water. Dinner on the "island" was good - especially the ribs. Skip the shrimp. The show surprised me and the entertainers were very funny! It was a great 4 hour evening tour.

We booked this tour to have something to do the night before our cruise. We used a Groupon and went with the night time tour with the dinner. Through no fault of the jungle queen, we happened to pick a date that was the same time as the Tortuga music festival. This made getting to the Jungle Queen and leaving... More

Fun boat ride aboard the Jungle Queen. The trip to their private island takes you behind some very exclusive homes with amazing boats. The tour guide, forgot his name but he was from the Bronx, knew a lot about the homes and the boats and gave a fun tour. Our group, 30+people) also went to the island and the show.... More

My wife and I took the longer tour that included the island stop. We really enjoyed the river boat tour, narration, and beautiful homes and scenery. Our longer tour included a stop at their small island which is a rather pathetic zoo and chance to sell you crap. Enjoyed the river boat tour but could have lived without the island... More

We took the 3 hour afternoon site seeing trip. There was a line to board, and I recommend grabbing seats on the side nearest the street when you board, taking the seats directly at the edge of the boat so you can have the best view. Most sites pointed out by the guide were out the right side. We enjoyed... More

Was great fun to go for a ride through the intercostal and see/hear about the mega yachts and billionaires homes. Relaxing trip. Well done narration and humor. HOWEVER- if you go on the three hour tour they take you to their island for an hour. (Great for kids with a small zoo) but be sure you want to do that.... More

I'll start by saying, if you are purchasing a beverage, buy before you leave, line is long, and bar tenders work as hard as they can. Drinks are amazing though! The narrations were a little cheesy, but everyone was laughing, including myself. Allan was hilarious, and at the end he greets everyone. The buffet was so delicious. The last time... More

Cruise was fine but they have a very poor policy. No refunds if anyone of the group suddenly gets ill and cancels. You lose the money.
