This was the perfect venue for entertaining our visiting 5 and 8 year old grandchildren! The island stop to view exotic birds and alligator wrestling was a great break for the little ones and held their interest.

Walkways were well-shaded and outfitted with plenty of benches for a sit-down moment.

Food at the concession was rather expensive 9 for a burger, chips and a drink but of good quality. Condiments were plentiful.

I would recommend this adventure to anyone in South Florida entertaining visitors, or just for locals to have a lazy three hour getaway.

Enjoyed a 90 minute tour on a riverboat sightseeing through Port Everglades. Captain Ozzie was entertaining as he pointed out the million dollar homes and yachts. Great way to keep cool on a hot summer day.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2017

This tour greatly surpassed my expectations. Be sure to sign up. The riverboat was not as slow and sluggish as i suspected. It cruised at a good speed through the houses, yachts, tugboats, iguanas and even a couple of alligators. I loved looking at the multi-million dollar homes of the rich and famous.

There were 10 of us on the Jungle Queen, we all very much enjoyed this 3 hour boat ride on the river through Ft Lauderdale. It was a great experience at a good price, we highly recommend this tour if you have some time waiting for your cruise trip.

Took the 90 minute cruise. Great Value. I live in FTL but wanted to do something different when the kids ages 20 and 23 visited. We all had a very pleasant time

The Jungle Queen Riverboat Cruise was a fun-filled activity. We enjoyed seeing the amazing buildings and the unique view of the city. I would highly recommend the cruise to anyone! TripAdvisor offered a great discount when booking though them .

Great way to spend the afternoon!

We saw a sign in the FLL airport about the Jungle Queen and looked up what tours they had to offer. We had the whole afternoon to waste before out late night flight home, so this was a nice way to spend the day.

We choose the 3 hour tour with a stop at an island to see animals and alligator wrestling. The island offers free wi-fi and food and drink purchases. They accept cash and credit cards for the snacks and drinks. They offered simple stuff - hot dogs, pretzels, nachos, burgers, chicken sandwiches, chips, water, beer, soda, etc.. And they also offer restrooms.

The tour guide was funny and told a lot of cute PG type jokes while we cruised the river. The weather was perfect and the breeze from the Jungle Queen was amazing!

Highly recommend!

Our guide Sarah was delightful very entertaining while delivering much information about the surroundings. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon and the stop at the island was very enjoyable as well. Have to admit....... a little depressing seeing all of those beautiful properties that are sitting vacant most of the time..... I'm any of us would be thrilled to vacation in one of them!!!
