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.

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

Excellent, relaxing cruise up/down the Intracoastal highway w/ a nice bar. Awesome views of million-dollar homes and yachts. Enjoyed the 1-hour stay on the Jungle Queen's private island. Excellent staff too!

As tourists to many different locations,sometimes it just gets old trying to find worth and value in finding things to do in an area. I'd have to say that this Dinner cruise was terrific. The narration was excellent,as you snake around the intercoastal waterways,seeing these 25 million dollar +...homes and some of the people that own them. The scenery is... More

Absolutely excellent. The tour was great, the all you can eat dinner of chicken, ribs, shrimp - 2 types, potato wedges, coleslaw, buns and tea or water was superb. There was no skimping. The show after the dinner was very entertaining and suitable for all ages. The commentary on the way there was very well done as they explained the... More

The riverboat cruise was a nice way to see the luxury inter-coastal homes and hear some stories of some of the famous and rich owners. The exotic birds and alligator wrestling on the island was nice. Taking pictures while holding one of the exotic birds was really the highlight of the island stop. Although, I don't think that it is... More
