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.

This is a great way to see the waterways of Fort Lauderdale. It's a guided tour that points out all the interests along the way. Port Everglades, beautiful homes and all that's Fort Lauderdale.

Tour of famous houses and show is nice. Boat ride is not comfortable in the small wobbly chairs. Food is greasy; chicken and ribs.

It was adult family for us. This was recommended by locals, and they weren't wrong. It's a lovely boat trip, so different from the cruise ship we just disembarked. Good value for money. The meal was tasty but messy. Ribs just are. The entertainment as a little corny, but good enough. The highlight is the boat ride itself.

Had an excellent and truly memorable evening on the jungle queen. Loved sailing down millionaires row and having the residents wave, hearing funny stories. The food was excellent and we really enjoyed the whole experience! I would definitely recommend!

Enjoyed the boat ride getting an up close look at the homes and yachts of the rich and famous. Capt Heather was friendly and entertaining throughout. Got the extra laugh of a large busted woman flashing the entire boat from the public docks. Dinner on the "island" was tasty and the live entertainment following was quite enjoyable. Everyone sang on... More

We took the Jungle Queen Dinner Cruise after a fast moving day of nonstop activity. Just barely made the departure time. The boat was not what we expected, but it didn't matter. The captain --our tour guide--was informative and entertaining. At our destination, we were treated to unlimited servings of barbecue (ribs, chicken), shrimp, beans, coleslaw, fried potatoes, bread, dessert....... More

My husband and I took this boat tour when we were on our honeymoon in Ft. Lauderdale. It was a weeknight non-dinner tour that we got with our Groupon. It was fun and did not feel like a waste of time and we learned a lot about the history and celebrities with yachts and mansions in FLL. If we had... More

On a pre-cruise tour we took the Jungle Queen excursion. We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise, viewing amazing $$$$ homes and boats of the celebrities, as well as the rich and not so famous. The cruise "hostess" did an amazing job of keeping us informed and entertained, and her voice was crystal clear throughout the boat and her banter funny and... More

We done the evening tour along with dinner and the show. The best part we thought was the tour itself. The tour was wonderful. Lots to see along the way the guides were very entertaining and knowledgeable. At the end of the tour there was a meal and a show on a so called island. The actual meal itself was... More
