We've taken this tour before and it is always a pleasure. The tour guide was easy to understand, well informed, and entertaining. The "island" facility was nice and the gator show engaging. I recommend this tour.

Need to park at Bahia Mar Marina and they charge by the hour. Jungle Queen offers the parking for $7.00 which is better than $18.00. The commentator on the boat was great in explaining everything that was around while we were cruising. The man who performed the alligator show is a little insane to stick his head in the gator's mouth but overall good show. Overall which there were more animals on the island but with the show and the 1 hour we have to spend there it was more than enough time. Highly recommend as a thing to do while in Fort Lauderdale.

We had a lot of time to fill before our flight home after a cruise so we booked this three hour tour. Nice trip down millionaires row to see their homes and yachts and then a brief visit off the boat to see an alligator show and see some birds and monkeys. Nice relaxing and fun experience.

Afternoon cruise

Jungle Queen left and arrived back on time. Bring a jacket and even something to protect your ears as it can get quite windy. I liked the little tropical island we stopped at, however I ordered the burger and it could have been better. The tour guide was funny but spoke quite fast making it difficult to understand what he was saying.

Julie, thanks for taking the time to give us 4 stars. I have spoken with the guides and reiterated the importance of speaking slowly and clearly. your feed back makes us better. thanks

The cruise itself was relaxing and informative and fun. The island stop should of included at least two shows. The cruise should’ve allowed people to bring their own lunch.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2020
Thanks for the 4 star review, Rizzo. We can confortably fit 150 people around the alligator pit. If the crowd exceeds 150 we do 2 shows. We do have food and snacks available on the island, but we find that allowing people to bring food and drinks often disturbs other customers. Thanks for the feedback.
