Had a good time, Captain Johnny was great. Got to ride the canal, plus went out a little from the shore. Would recommend to a friend.

It is about being aboard the Africa Queen and experiencing the feel of the focal point of the movie. The cruise allows you the time to absorb some of that classic film.

We had a delightful cruise with a cigar, a box of salt, and some fake leeches made of paper, all of which we brought along. it was a delight to take a turn at the tiller and steer it while getting pictures to remember.

We had 4 people on our cruise. I think the sign said 6, but just knowing how tight a fit it is, I wouldn’t want to be with any more than 8.
