About
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.

Don’t waste your money. It’s a little boat ride for a lot of cash. Some history about the African queen. A whole lot of movie trivia. That’s about it.
If want to see the boat, go there and take a picture in front of it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise on The African Queen. Captain Eddie was an excellent historian about the boat and the film of the same name. He engaged us and one other couple in fun movie trivia questions and took photos so we could enjoy our memories in the future!!

We enjoyed very much getting to ride on this iconic piece of movie history. The captain shared much of the history of the boat, trivia about it's role in the movie, and how it came to be restored - interesting and much appreciated. Also enjoyable cruising the canals and out into the open water! Fun!

My husband and I took this excursion and loved it! It’s a great boat ride as well as a great experience for movie buffs or fans if those old classics. Very well run, the captain does a great job narrating; it’s just a really enjoyable time. Only 6 guests on our tour which is just perfect as the boat is smaller than you think. I would highly recommend this outing.

Charming captain on board and very enthusiastic and informative, lovely gentle cruise down canal out to the Atlantic, boat is beautiful and the movie photographs on board were a real eye opener, I would recommend this trip to anyone who is nearby as the 90 minute trip is worth every penny…
Thank you
