Highlight of our trip! Stories about the boat and movie were very interesting. Got to steer and have our picture made where Bogart and Hepburn did!

We enjoyed our short trip, all the history as shared by our captain, and especially pouring a bottle of "gin" overboard a la Hepburn!

A great piece of history and a great time. The captain was informative and fun. It was an experience anyone that has seen the movie should have.

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!

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
