Owner description: 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.

It is worth every dime. I really enjoyed it. Seeing the 20 Million dollar yachts were way out of my league. It must be nice to thrown your money into the river and watch it float. The tour guide is really entertaining, the island show in the Jungle is really fun. For the price, we were blown away. Good job... More

I'd been on the Jungle Queen many years ago and decided to try it again. What a pleasant way to spend a morning or afternoon. The boat is very clean and comfortable. It goes out of the marina in Bahia Mar which is easy to locate. You can park across the street or in the parking lot in front of... More

We had a very pleasant cruise down the intracoastal waterway and the Middle River. The co-captain gave a very nice tour of the beautiful waterside mansions. The stop at their "Island" was a nice break in the middle.

Just noting a bad experience with this company. We had booked a trip with them for a 3 hour cruise today. The cruise was supposed to leave at 1.30pm. The boarding was to be at 1.15pm, though no one mentioned this at the time I booked the trip on the telephone. Unfortunately because of rain and traffic condition I arrived... More

The Jungle Queen Riverboat ride is something not to be missed when you are in Fort Lauderdale. Its a view you just cant get unless you are on the water. The view of the million dollar homes and yachts is really interesting and fun. The tour guide shares alot of information about the area, the residents and the money spent... More

This was a nice cruise along the waterways of Fort Lauderdale. Homes of the rich and famous are pointed out along the way. You end up at a little island with refreshments, souvenirs and an alligator show. The upper deck is the best for photo opportunities. There are toilets on board.

We booked the dinner cruise on the Jungle Queen. The river cruise portion of this was nice. It was dark, so a little difficult to see some of the million dollar mansions, but it was still nice and informative. You then end up on a "tropical island" with some birds in cages. You then "enjoy" a BBQ dinner, which is... More

As part one in Dad's 90th birthday celebration, we chose to do the Jungle Queen Riverboat Cruise. The dinner on the private island with entertainment was a huge selling point for us. The food they served was right up Dad's alley - BBQ! Sold! We did this on 8-30, so the weather here in Fort Lauderdale was blazing. I approached... More

Fun to see how the other half lives. Beautiful mansions and unbelievable yachts. The tour guides are very entertaining. I thought it was a little expensive for a 90 minute cruise however.

This is one of those trips you take to learn about the rich! It's a 3 hour tour that stops along the way to visit an alligator show. The captain points out a lot of homes and their owners along with some of his "funny" jokes. Nice trip.
