Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

We had a wonderful trip on the Pirate's Choice. We ended up having the ship to ourselves and it was great! Our captain was so nice and let us help hoist the sails and steer as well. We took some amazing pictures out on the water and enjoyed our own dinner and wine we brought aboard with us. It was a fantastic way to spend the evening. We highly recommend it!

Fun way to spend a couple of hours in Key Largo. Our captain, Brian was knowledgeable about the history of the boat, film and surrounding area. Only 6 people maximum per ride. Wear sun screen and a hat because there is little shade from the sun.

What a wonderful way to start a day and then finish with the movie, or maybe you want to do it in reverse. We arrived at the dock and checked in by signing a piece of paper that said we wouldn't touch the boiler. It was hot and would leave a blister. After doing that we met the captain on the boat and sat down and he gave a history of the African Queen, photos included! We had 45 minutes to travel out the canal and then circle around in the Atlantic. On our way out, there were storms on either side of us, but our captain sailed us right between the two storms. We did get the edge of one, but he was prepared with umbrellas. We had so much fun on our little boat right up next to the big ones! Take this cruise for an experience you won't soon forget! (And then watch the movie again!)

We loved everything about the boat, the captain, and the incredible meal we were served. It is amazingly true to the the movie, with the sound of the steam engine and the whistle attracting the attention of viewers along the shore. They have props like an umbrella and a bottle of "gin" that are great for photos. Also, the captain was very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the vessel. I highly recommend this trip to any fan of the movie.
