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.

A must for all film buffs - the original African queen and her looks don't deceive. The captain is a jolly jack tar who fire up the steam and takes you through a brief history along the river.

Riding the African Queen in memory of my Mom as it was her favorite movie and after we told the captain the story he made my day and let me drive for a few minutes. Perfect trip and history lesson.

We just did the dinner cruise on the African Queen. For any fan of the old movies, old technologies (engine from 1891 I think) or for anyone looking for that special evening that not everyone and their mother does. The food was nice, our captain...More

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
