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.

A group of 100+ went on this excursion for a "forced fun" group activity. When we heard how long the activity was, no one was excited. But then, we got on the ferry and started seeing multiple million dollar homes...and then we started drooling. It's a gorgeous ride to the amusement park. Especially with the sun going down. The bartenders... More

We had a fantastic time on the Jungle Queen Riverboat. We took an hour ride the riverboat. At the end we got off to have a wonderful supper. The meal is family style. All you can eat. We had barbecue chicken, barbecue ribs, baked beans, coleslaw, shrimp, rolls, iced tea and ice water. The waitresses brought out as much food... More

This was a wonderful tour! It was a very relaxing and enjoyable boat ride.... Then we stopped at the island for a delicious meal and show and as a plus got to visit with some adorable animals. :) Then we took the relaxing trip back to the marina. I would definitely recommend this trip!

Went on the afternoon 3 hour tour for $30. Saw all the waterfront homes of the rich and famous with their massive yachts outside . How the other half live! The guide was very informative and entertaining pointing out the places of interest. Didn't realise how many waterways there were. We stopped on a little island zoo with an alligator... More

The riverboat cost $30/pp and was a three-hour tour throughout the channels of Fort Lauderdale with a guide pointing out all the sights. Fort Lauderdale is supposedly the yacht capital of the world and I have never seen so many beautiful yachts! We also got a tour of the various homes that some of the rich owned. We traveled up...

Took this tour about 12 years ago, and brought some first timers to Ft Lauderdale and decided to try it again. It was not a disappointment it is still a good time with good entertainment and good food. Staff was friendly and was there to serve you a family style meal. It's a great way to see the beautiful homes... More

Went on a dinner and show cruise, took advantage of a groupon which saved us about $30. Got there shortly after 5, got our tickets and got on the boat within 10 minutes even though there was a good sized line. Had a nice cruise out to their "island" good dinner and the show was fun as well. Took a... More

A great cruise. You learn about how the areas were populated, famous people who live or lived there and topped off with a great dinner and excellent entertainment.
