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.

My 14-year-old and I booked the snorkel cruise and were delighted with our experience. The 30-foot sail boat holds only 6 passengers so you are guaranteed an intimate fun trip. We set sail out of the canal and Captain Dave told us all about the...More

Wind was light but we had a good time. Skipper was a great host and good conversationalist, he made an extra effort for us.

If you have seen the movie or at least are familiar with it, I think it adds to the enjoyment of the trip. Trip is not long, but very cool! We were glad we went.

Always enjoyed the movie. Really a neat experience to ride in a boat powered by steam and listening to a functioning, restored engine. Never expected to make a connection to the past in Key Largo. Glad we took the trip!

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
