Overview

In 2012 the iconic boat the African Queen was restored for her 100 year centennial celebration. In May 2012 she once again began plying the waters of Key Largo and currently offers canal and dinner cruises. We go out daily at 10am, 12am, 2pm, 4pm and 6pm. On Fridays and Saturdays at 6pm we offer a dinner cruise to the Pilot House Marina where passengers disembark and enjoy dinner in the restaurant before boarding the vessel once again to return to the Marina Del Mar. Dinner and lunch cruises are also available on request for groups of at least 4 people.

Took the cruise this morning, and couldn't wait to write a review! I'm not a Bogart fan, but have seen "The African Queen" a couple of times and like it. The boat itself is a character in the movie. My sister-in-law is a movie fan,...More

You can enjoy a afternoon, sunset or dinner cruise aboard the African Queen. It's great to have gone out and enjoy the chugging or the old steam engine and hear the whistle blow around the corner. Nice trip.

I'm not sure, but they have a website and I'm sure you can find out there. Also offer a dinner cruise but they drop you at a restaurant ten take you back after. Good luck
