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.

We booked our trip via Sunny.org, a promotional website for Fort Lauderdale. Two persons for the price of one ($24,00). If you can get a deal like this, it's an absolute must. Otherwise, in my opinion, the trip is too expensive for what you get. 1,5 hour trip along the mega villas and yachts of Fort Lauderdale. The villa of... More

Took the 11am cruise. Upon arrival was told to park in adjoining hotel car park at a cost of $7. Guy didn't inform us that there was a cheaper option across the street for $1.75 an hour. There were 10 empty "Jungle Queen" parking bays right out front but they were reserved for "disabled drivers". There were no disabled passengers... More

Took this tour on September 2016. Started badly - we could not bring any of our own food or drinks on the tour. We had two among us that have serious dietary restrictions, and after an argument with the staff, we were allowed to bring our dietary snacks on board. It was obvious that they wanted you to buy their... More

This excursion was great from start to finish. Purchased tickets via Groupon and saved around $30 (for 2 ppl.). Parking and boarding was easy and the narrator for the tour was excellent. The private island was beautiful and well maintained. The staff serving dinner was outstanding - very friendly and personable with all guests. Plenty of food and it was... More

We did the dinner cruise to the private island and had a FAB night, we loved it. All the staff were brilliant and very helpful. The barbecue dinner was plentiful and delicious and the entertainment was really good. The tap dancer/comedian had us crying with laughter - top entertainer.

We got a discounted ticket on Groupon which made our trip $78 for two. Well worth it. We had a nice ride out to a "private island" and had a buffet dinner. Really it was more like a family style dinner, where they have the sides on the table and you can get what you want and they bring out... More

We had the great opportunity to do a charter cruise and dinner with the Jungle Queen. We had initially thought about doing a dinner with a local restaurant with a fixed menu and bar. We opted to do the dinner cruise and BBQ buffet. We are definitely glad we did. I must admit that I had some reservations about BBQ... More

The riverboat takes you along the intercostal and New River past mega yachts, mansions and through downtown Ft. Lauderdale. An all you can eat barbecue dinner and 4 act variety show round out the evening before sailing back down the waterway. A nice evening with lots to see and enjoy.

Not going to lie. Pretty boring with expensive drinks. May be better for families then a group of girls. You cannot sit on the top deck so no sun if you're a sun soaker like me. Some really bad seats if you don't get on early. My friend never gets motion sick on boats but she because of our mid... More
