The Jungle Queen Sightseeing Cruise was a fabulous addition to my birthday trip to Miami. The team on the ground was helpful and a joy to interact with. The tour guide was a wealth of knowledge who shared interesting facts with us as we sailed down the New River taking in the views of Miami, marvelous waterfront mansions, and brilliant architecture.

It was incredible we saw such a cute alligator. I came to miami with my boyfriend and we never been on a airboat. I 100% recommend this tour. Plus we got a miami cruise of the bay. Best part of the weekend. ❤️❤️❤️
