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.

We thoroughly enjoyed this dinner cruise, we sailed along the intracoastal waterway past the millionaires homes and enjoyed the commentary of the captain. We arrived at the tropical island where we enjoyed a very simple but generous and tasty dinner of chicken, shrimp and sides; after dinner we had a little floor show that was funny without meaning to be!...

This is a three hour excursion through the New River in FLL, sightseeing the mansions of famous people on both shores, learning about the river, the bridges, watching boats of all sizes and kinds, and learning about Florida Real Estate, curios, etc. The stop at the island zoo to watch monkies, iguanas, lemurs, and all kinds of birds, plus the...

The boat ride was a fun ride down the intercostal water way. I would recommend arriving at least 30 minutes early as the boat fills fast and you don't see much from the middle seats. We arrived on the island quite hungry but thankfully the buffet is actually table service and food started arriving as soon as we were seated.... More

Took my mom on the sightseeing, dinner and variety show cruise. She loved it!! We laughed so hard all night her cheeks hurt. Their ribs were the best, but the chicken and peel and eat shrimp were good. Bring a cushion or jacket to sit on for the show and bug spray if bugs like you.

We joined the boat 40 mins early which built the anticipation but i'd prefer to not be wasting valuable holiday time particularly as people will still boarding close to the start time so don't feel you need the 45 mins arrival in advance time suggested on the Viator ticket. The bar is open however and it allowed us to get... More

We were staying in Northern Miami, so when my husband found out I had booked us on the dinner cruise for the Jungle Queen, he was a little annoyed. But the 1 hour ride was totally worth it! The boat leaves around 6pm, but if you a "window" seat, you need to get there around 5pm. There was no air... More

The river boat cruise was fantastic. It's the best way to nosey at the lifestyles of the rich and the famous. Plenty of large houses and yachts. The tour itself was fine and 90 minutes was sufficient. The tour guide was knowledgable and entertaining and the bar was well stocked

Nice trip on the lagoon, with this old style river boat. Three hours (45' in the island) for looking at big villas and at extra luxurious yatchs. 30$per adults, 15$ for kids, maybe a little much. On board you can drink only water or you have to pay at the bar at the second floor of the jungle queen.

We took the 4 hour dining cruise, and the guide Steve Zimmerman was amazing!!! I normally don`t remember the names of guides, but this guy was something else. It was fun to see all the big houses and yachts along the river. We ate some good bbq food at the island and the show was pretty okay. Zimmerman did some... More
