Where are we going today?
All aboard Captain...It's river boat time! See Fort Lauderdale in a whole new light by cruising up their historic New River with the JungleQueen Riverboat.
There are a number of cruises to choose from, so you can make sure you pick what's best for what interests your family.
JungeQueen Riverboat have daily morning cruises which are fully narrated, so for 90 minutes you can enjoy the sights of the city as well as learn about them! You will make your way past Millionaire's Row (where all the big fancy houses are - that you might own one day!), as well as those impressive Mega Yachts.
Departing daily at 10am, these cruises are a great start to your day out in Fort Lauderdale.
JungleQueen Riverboats also offer their daily, afternoon 3 hour cruise for those kids with a slightly longer attention span. This cruise will sail through the "Venice of America" before stopping at their own Tropical Isle to visit their unique "Jungle Queen Indian Village" where kids can learn some history and culture of some of the people who make up the wonderful United States.
These cruises depart at 1:45pm and are a great way to spend an afternoon.
If you want to enjoy an evening out on the water, you can enjoy a fun BBQ dinner! Ribs, chicken, and steamed shrimp with all the trimmings. Did we mention it's ALL YOU CAN EAT!? Yum! Watch the lights go on across the city as you tuck in to your tasty finger-licking meal!

I highly DO NOT recommend this tour if you are a compassionate animal lover who does not support animals being kept in captivity in uncomfortable conditions. I'm referring to the 50 minute stop that this riverboat tour makes to the "Jungle Queen Tropical Isle." This is an unnecessary, odd pit-stop designed to further bilk tourist dollars on awful concession food (hot dogs, nachos), as well as promote an outdated, depressing zoo-like atmosphere in which poor animals (exotic birds, monkeys, alligators, etc.) are confined to an obviously uncomfortable,...Read More

I also thought that the supper was on the ship but you actually got off the ship to eat. Had to go through the billionaires homes and the commentary was hilarious. Just did not know that it would take an hour and a half before we ate. Once there, food was all you can eat and was tasty. Chicken, ribs, beans, shrimp, coleslaw, bread and dessert and coffee. Entertainment was actually pretty good. There was some hilarious moments. They also had some animals behind cages but might be not for some people since space is small.

This pit-stop takes away from the enjoyment of an otherwise relaxing cruise and I encourage the Jungle Queen staff members and powers that be to reconsider scrapping this outdated practice. I recently relocated to FLL and had every intention on recommending this tour to visiting family/friends. However, this is no longer the case.
