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.

Nice trip on the water. Used this trip to fill in time while waiting for our flight home. Lots of expensive homes and yachts to look at. Very relaxing tour with a nice view of the waterway and surrounding area. Lots of information given out by the tour guide however I will not be able to remember it all

The boat left the dock promptly- park at the hotel at the corner or at the beach across the street. Handicap parking is available at the dock. We sat on the lower level (water level). It was breezier than the second level. Also, the bathrooms are on the lower level. The second level requires climbing stairs. The bar is on... More

I went to this with a group of people while we were in for a conference. We had the dinner cruise which means you cruise to an island and have an all you can eat BBQ with a variety show afterwards. The highlight was the one hour trip to the island where you are given a great tour regarding sites.... More

We enjoyed our trip. The guide, Rhonda, was a lot of fun and knew her stuff! I was disappointed with the island and think this could be left off the tour. If they keep it in they should double the food stands to minimise the wait. I would recommend this tour as a fun way to spend a couple of... More

I had booked the Jungle Queen because I had found a Groupon and it was a good price. I knew it had been around for a long time so I thought it would be really ho hum but was I surprised. The guide was informative with funny, snappy comments that kept people interested all afternoon. The sights were amazing if... More

Went on an afternoon "family" excursion. I bought vouchers on Groupon. The first 4 people were allowed on,. I told the cashier that the next 4 were coming and would be joining us. THEY WERE NOT ALLOWED ON! When we returned, I went to the same cashier and reminded her. All she did was shrug. Our friends were turned away... More

Went on this riverboat with a group of 22 friends. Customer service was good, the boat ride over to the island was great. The woman who gave all the fun facts was very funny and entertaining. The food was average bit, if your hungry this is the all you can eat BBQ place for you. The island grounds was a... More

The seating is horrible, metal chairs welded together in a row and the whole row slides around when someone behind pushes on it. The running commentary as you wind your way to the dinner island is good. The dinner, BBQ Ribs, BBQ Chicken, Boiled Shrimp is the same quality as you would expect in an all you can eat for... More

First of all, the crew of the boat along with the staff at the island were so awesome and friendly and definitely hard-working! The cruise to the island was informative as Captain Luis narrated the history and the present culture along the way - and approaching a drawbridge was a hoot! The food was plentiful and good and the entertainment,... More

Not surprisingly, 3 hours of gawking at the floating & stationary toys of the rich & really rich gets old & boring before the end of the journey. Commentary that is aimed at describing what is being seen is sprinkled with the sometimes amusing comedy of a Catskill wannabe. About an hour of the total time is devoted to selling... More
