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.

Took the Boat ride this weekend, 4/22/17, and I think you will agree if you also take the trip that it is a one time only adventure. Their private island with the Zoo and alligator show was OK, but the Gators definitely seemed to be pooped and use to the handling. If you choose to go, be sure to sit... More

Great for all ages! The commentary was funny and informative. It was fun to look at the HUGE yachts and beautiful houses along the river. The food was amazing (especially the ribs) and the kids loved the animals and birds on the "island". This experience is worth more than the ticket cost!

I had a great time on the Jungle Queen. We had a very rainy day today and there was an emergency when someone slipped on the stairs and fell down. The crew was amazing in the way the handled everything. They tended to the person immediatly and when they were able to dock they did and had emergency vehicles waiting.... More

I'm always writing about whether something is actually wheelchair accessible or not- Jungle Queen boats LEGIT are. I've attempted to do several boat tours, where they say a wheelchair can board, and one of several usually happen: They offer to carry you and your chair (uh, no!!), the ramp is at a dangerously steep incline, or the boat is rocking...

I took the afternoon 90 minute cruise. I had Allen as a tour guide. He was awesome! He had a great balance of knowledge and humor in his commentary on the many mansions and yachts we saw on the route. The ride itself was smooth. They played great music. The scenery was nice. Plenty of things to take pictures of.... More

It was ok, but started to get bored waiting to load. Then we had to tag behind a tug boat throughout the city and had to remain seated. It would be better if we could walk around and fo from side to side. I have been on better sight seeing trips.

It was a way to spend the morning. My son wanted to go on a boat, so we decided to try it out. It seemed to be all about which billionaire owned which house, which I am not all that interested in. But it was nice to be out on the water. Nothing special.

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.
