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.

We had an excellent time and a great first snorkeling experience. The boat itself is full of character.

Our captain (can't remember his name) was a young local who gave us good overall, with pertinent details, on the area and the boat. We recommend taking this trip.

Really nice experience, whole trip was about 1.5 hrs long. Steam engine sounds just like it did in the movie. Capt Richard gave some background info on the movie, boat restoration ans was very accommodating. Nice relaxing trip to the past!

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
