Designing your itinerary in Fort Lauderdale is easy with so many activities available from which to choose. This particular riverboat cruise is offered multiple times each day and only lasts a couple of hours, so you can sneak it in between other plans. And, with a stop at a tropical isle, you’ll definitely want to add this tour to your agenda.
What to Expect
Meet for this Fort Lauderdale cruise at the Bahia Mar Yachting Center. Boarding happens about 45 minutes before your actual departure time.
Your cruise sets sail on the New River. Pass by the mansions and yachts of Millionaire’s Row on your way to Jungle Queen Tropical Isle.
Once you arrive on the isle, keep a lookout for alligators and other Florida wildlife. There’s a concession stand, where you can buy snacks and drinks if you’re hungry.
After a short while on the isle, reboard your ship and return to Bahia Mar Yachting Center.

My mom and I visited over the summer and thought we'd take the 90 minute tour after seeing an advertisement for it in the airport. We arrived at the check-in time provided in the confirmation and it was extremely chaotic. We received our printed tickets...More

Nice ride with excellent narration

I really enjoyed the Jungle Queen Riverboat Cruise. True, my expectations were fairly low, but they were certainly exceeded. Look, I wouldn't go out of my way to do this, but as a nice way to transition from a cruise to the airport, it hit...More

About 90 minutes... Seriously though, shorter cruise takes you through the homes along the intracoastal waterway. The longer cruise does the same as the shorter cruise but also takes you to an island owned by the company... More

No. This is not that type of cruise. It travels down the Intracoastal waterway and is only a few hours long, depending upon which cruise you take. It is not far from either the port or the airport and easily accessible... More
