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.

It was my birthday and we came to the Keys. This was an exciting adventure just being aboard history. I even got to steer. Loved it and thank you.

We thought it would be fun to ride in the African Queen, so we chose the dinner cruise. It was a fun, nostalgic, and unique adventure. The Queen is slapped together just like she was in the movie, the Captain was full of information, pictures,...More

It has been restored to a condition that is probably better when she was in service in the Congo years ago. This is the same boat featured in the movie by that name and quite a quaint little ride through nostalgic history.

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
