Overview
More
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.

Overall we enjoyed the trip. The boiler wouldn’t heat and kept shutting itself off, so the real experience of being on the boat didn’t happen for us. It’s understandable with the age of the boat that this could happen but it pretty much defeated the...More

Whole story was interesting from the day the movie was made to the present day. Always wanted to see the queen but to actually get to ride on it was a dream come true. Thank you Captain Mike.

The dinner cruise was a unique way to go to dinner. The captain gave us a great history overview of the African Queen and made the cruise a lot of fun.

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

Hello there, the price of a canal cruise is $49 per person plus tax. There are also dinner cruises which are $89 per person on Friday and Saturday's early evening. Kind Regards The African Queen
