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.

The cruise itself was nice, cruising by multi million dollar homes with narration from our tour guide. Unfortunately, our tour group seemed to have several large, rude groups who were more interested in having their own very loud conversations than paying attention to the details...More

Parking was about a five minute brisk walk away for $ 7.00. Staff taking pictures upon boarding were more interested in getting everyone rushed on rather than taking a nice picture. I would have loved to have purchased this, but the photographer could not have...More

This was a very fun experience. The boat ride and tour guide was excellent, she was very knowledgeable of the area and quite the comedian . Once we arrived to the island the real fun began. Dinner and the entertainment show was great.

It was fun to travel in a boat with silent waters and sea breezes surrounding us.. the narrator in the boat explained all about the holiday homes of millionaires around .. he made us feel how poor we are though 😂😂

We took the '3 hour tour' which was much more enjoyable than Gilligan's. Anyway, super fun to see how the 'rich and famous' live and the island layover was fun with burgers/dogs/ice cream and of course the animals. Worth the time.
