About
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.

This was a really fun Florida Keys tourist activity. A leisurely boat ride, fantastic classic movie trivia, and magnificent views of posh homes! Eddie was a gracious and knowledgeable guide.

Relaxing boat ride and old movie trivia. My wife and I loved it. The captain was very knowledgeable on old movies. I loved the movie and this experience.

As a lover of old movies seeing this opportunity to take a ride in this historic boat was something I couldn't pass up. It was a lot of fun and I was able to take the rudder and sail it around for a bit. The captain was awesome and asked movie trivia questions and talked about the beautiful homes along the way. Would definitely recommend this cruise, especially for movie history buffs.

Captain Eddie was friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the afternoon however we failed on movie trivia. Captain Eddie filled us with information about the African Queen and the actors, etc. Disappointed that the gift shop closed earlier than posted hours...

Fun little trip. If you loved the movie, this is a fun little excursion. Only 6 passengers at a time, lots of photo ops and relaxing way to get out on the water (mostly canals) for an hour and a half.

Ok for a nostalgic movie boat ride in the canals of Key Largo and out in the open ocean. The guide was interesting to talk with. Note that the boat did not use the boiler to propel the boat (an outboard motor did). IMHO, I think this attraction is a bit pricey for the boat ride, but fun never the less.

The restoration was fantastic, the captain was delightful, and shared his significant knowledge of the movie and the boat. He was also kind enough to let me take the helm when outside the canal which made for some great photos. This was a great experience and well worth the money.

The cruise on the vintage boat was quite interesting. Eddie shared the history of the boat illustrated in photos and entertained us with his vast knowledge of movie trivia.

This is a fun tour around the canals of Key Largo in a historic piece of movie history. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the movie and gave a great presentation about the movie and the boat. Its a great way to spend a couple of hours.
