A "Must" in Fort Lauderdale for 78 years! Experience a little...

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.

5 silver foxes had an enjoyable time in the sun cruising the Venice of America canals aboard the Jungle Queen. View homes and/ or boats worth millions and millions of dollars. Learn who lives and/ or lived in the area. A little hokey but informative and fun way to spend 90 minutes.

This open air, double decker cruise takes you for an amazing scenic view of "how the other half live" . The extreme yachts, ships and beautiful homes were a sight to see. The tour guide was very informative and had a sense of humor as well. I would definitely go again if I get the opportunity. There is also a... More

We took the Jungle Queen on a Sunday when there were 7 cruise ships at Port Everglades and part of the boat ride was a close-up tour past all the cruise ships, so I would recommend a Sunday cruise during the day time. We enjoyed seeing the homes and private yachts from the water side and recommend this tour highly.

I can't believe that I never knew about The Jungle Queen Riverboat, Dining, and Entertainment experience. For about $53.00 without coupons we enjoyed a narrated tour viewing beautiful homes and magnificent yachts along the Fort Lauderdale canals. Following the "cruise" we were treated to an all you can eat sit down dinner featuring bbq ribs, bbq chicken, shrimp, fries, coleslaw,... More

We had a great guide on this trip who told us a lot about the people living in the homes along the waterway to the island where we had dinner. Food was great--especially the ribs. We had as much food as we wanted so none of us went away hungry. The show after the dinner was excellent with three comedians... More

The Jungle Queen evening cruise takes you by lots of beautiful homes, boats and yachts, and on to their private island. There, you partake in an all you eat dinner of BBQ ribs and chicken with unlimited sides of beans and slaw. After dinner there is a live show with three or four acts. The staff work hard to keep...
