Afternoon Tropical Isle Visit
From US$32.95
Designing your itinerary in Fort Lauderdale is easy with so many activities available from which to choose. This particular riverboat cruise is packed with sightseeing 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 begins 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.

Jungle Queen Tour

The multimillion dollar homes and yacht tour was very nice. The island was a nice break with refreshments, animals and iguanas. Saw a 6ft orange Iguana, roaming freely. Very pleasant break.
