Designing your itinerary in Fort Lauderdale is easy with so many activities available from which to choose. This particular riverboat cruise is offered multiple times each day and only lasts a couple of hours, so you can sneak it in between other plans. And, with a stop at a tropical isle, you’ll definitely want to add this tour to your agenda.
What to Expect
Meet for this Fort Lauderdale cruise at the Bahia Mar Yachting Center. Boarding happens about 45 minutes before your actual departure time.

Your cruise sets sail on the New River. Pass by the mansions and yachts of Millionaire’s Row on your way to Jungle Queen Tropical Isle.

Once you arrive on the isle, keep a lookout for alligators and other Florida wildlife. There’s a concession stand, where you can buy snacks and drinks if you’re hungry.

After a short while on the isle, reboard your ship and return to Bahia Mar Yachting Center.

Not What I Expected

Me and my friend arrived an hour early and actually got to sit together. It was a little uncomfortable watching larger parties board with no chance of sitting together and no direction from the staff on what to do. The boat ride out to the...More

So sorry that you did not enjoy the full experience. Not sure what you meant about the larger parties having no chance of sitting together. Large groups are assigned seats in a specific section of the boat as to avoid that problem. We do serve...More
