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 took a 6 day vacation to visit family and celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We went to Key West, the Everglades, Viscaya and several other sites but this dinner cruise was the highlight of our vacation. The whole experience was very lovely. Seeing how the wealthy live was great then we were taken to this plus tropical island for... More

Overall potentially this is a good cruise with lots to see and informative commentary. Unfortunately the narrator/commenter chose to almost always comment about places on his right side, ignoring the left side of the boat. Even on the return trip (where, of course, everything on the right side on the outbound trip becomes the left side on the return trip)... More

We took the afternoon cruise so that we could stop at their private zoo. We went through the river into a section named millionaire's row. The yachts were amazing and the houses were fabulous. The narrator told us about a lot of the history behind the majority of the houses. Their zoo was very small but very well kept. It... More

This was part of a tour from the ship to the airport, it is a boat ride with commentary which was very informative, there is a place to buy a coffee, drink both alcoholic & non also snacks. I would highly recommend this tour

The Jungle Queen All- you-can-eat Dinner Cruise is awesome. We learned interesting things about Ft. Lauderdale during the initial cruise to the island. The food was great- BBQ style with chicken, ribs, shrimp, baked beans, coleslaw, bread and french fries. Not only was there live entertainment, but the Island hosted a range of animals all being rehabilitated. 4 hours of... More
