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.

I had been on other Jungle Queen boat rides in Louisville & Lake George, but this is one for the books. At first I thought it was going to be a simple nice evening dinner cruise, but this was a different dinner cruise. it was close to four hours, plus dinner & a show. It was awesome on the waterways,... More

If your in Fort Lauderdale you must go on the dinner cruise. The food was amazing...all you can eat, ribs chicken and the most delish shrimp. The captain was extremely informative and funny. Had a great evening. Would do again for sure.

yea the corny jokes get old (especially the one about Lee Majors & Farah Fawcett's former house) but our three year grandson loved the excursion especially the stop at the island for the animal exhibits and the live alligator show. It doesn't get old seeing how the river winds through the city and all the things you can see, very... More

Did the 6pm and dinner show. Our boat was packed to capacity as I guess this is a very popular outing. Great food! A little hectic of an atmosphere on the "island" but overall a good time!

We did the dinner tour and had a great time! On the way to their little island they take you past mansions and give you a little history as to who has owned them and about how much each costs. The food was very good as well as the entertainment. My only suggestion could be for the staff to have... More

We went on this cruise as a free outing paid for by our resort which was great! I would not have wanted to pay $50 per person, personally. However the food was pretty good and its all you can eat (bbq). The "show" was a little cheesy, very family friendly though. The comedian was pretty funny. It started pouring rain... More

There is a reason why this attraction has been around for over 80 years. It is one of a kind. I don't know of any other place in Florida where you can take a scenic boat ride through the gorgeous intercostal waterways of Florida where the captain pointed out all the celebrity homes and some area history. After an hour... More

We had a great time. The staff was very helpful when we had ended up at the jungle Queen corporate office thanks to Google maps instead of the jungle Queen riverboat. But they honored our reservation the next day. Once on board Captain Chris was fabulous with his jokes and information on the houses and boats around us. On the... More
