Description: A "Must" in Fort Lauderdale for 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, 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.

Cruise in Jungle Quine Riverboat enable nice view of Fort Lauderdale canals and may give some idea about this place. In the middle of the cruise there is a brake in a small island with small zoo. I must say that I was disappointed since it was not what I thought.

Cruising with Jungle Queen you get to see Ft. Lauderdale from the water side, which is beautiful! So many nice views- million dollar homes, mega yachts and wildlife. Sorry you did not enjoy our tropical isle. We do stop at our beautiful and lush tropical isle for an hour. It includes our famous alligator show. A 4000 gallon Koi Pond. Many exotic animals including exotic, talking birds, lemurs, monkeys, and more. Plus, you can hold our baby gator and one of our exotic birds and have your picture taken with them.

What a fantastic time! Despite a bit of rain the tour to the jungle queen island was very entertaining. The food was good and the entertainment on the island was great. Family friendly and also great for couples and getting to know new people. Definitely recommend. If you can find it on Groupon I definitely suggest taking advantage. A must do in Ft. Lauderdale.

We were in the Muami area for a wedding on a thursday night and turned it into a getaway. Looking for something to do this caught our attention. We've made a habbit if taking a boat ride everywhere we travel. We got a great deal on groupon which was a plus. The experience was a out 4 hrs total including a nice boat ride, all you can eat bbq with live music while you dine, a variety show after dinner and a cruise back afterwards. There were a variety of animals on the island, wish we had seen more of them. It was a great night out and great way to end our trip. I would recommend this to anyone.
