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.

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.

I'll start by saying, most of my negative review is not the fault of the company but the rude ignorant people on the cruise. The riverboat was packed to the limit and there was a huge country show on the beach across the road. We ere there about 45 minutes early and there was already a crowd in line. The... More

The boat cruise was smooth and delightful on a gorgeous April afternoon. Thank you to the Captain. The staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, much of the ambiance was hampered by the very loud non-stop narration. The cruise was wonderful on the return when the guide was silent. I agree with some other reviews that the island is a sad... More

Did this tour with a Groupon at the suggestion of family who live locally. The booking process was friendly and easy. What we enjoyed most was the trip there seeing the yachts, big houses and other things along the river. The island was a bit of a disappointment. It's small enough to see in about 20 minutes. Our 10 and... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our land and sea tour of the Fort Lauderdale waterways with the Jungle Queen. Very informative and some breathtaking views of "millionaire row" with the homes and of course the beautiful yachts. The guide was very, very good and quite humorous in his description of the sights. Also say all the cruise ships and... More

We had a late flight after our cruise and so signed up for a tour which included Jungle Queen. The whole family loved it. We got to see some very impressive Yachts and homes that one doesn't usually see when visiting the city. These are multi-million dollar homes and not in your typical style.
