I love the movie, The African Queen... so it was a real treat to get a chance to ride on the boat. I especially loved watching the steam engine work. Watch the movie before you go, you will be so glad you did!

We were the only two aboard, Johnnie was full of information about the A. Queen, Key Largo, and the various homes and yachts we passed. The trip was extremely worthwhile. We went out on the reef quite a distance.

It was my birthday and we came to the Keys. This was an exciting adventure just being aboard history. I even got to steer. Loved it and thank you.

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

Hello there, the price of a canal cruise is $49 per person plus tax. There are also dinner cruises which are $89 per person on Friday and Saturday's early evening. Kind Regards The African Queen
