The cruise is on the "African Queen", from the famous 1950's movie boat of the same name. This steamboat was originally built in England over 100 years ago. The boat is operational with a boiler and steam engine. Pretty amazing, in our opinion. Congratulations to Lance and Suzanne Holmquist on the work they did to rescue and restore this boat.
The cruise was good fun, even on a hot-humid June day in Florida. The boat was stocked with cold bottled water.
The captain permitted us to steer the boat. He was very informative on the history and operation of the African Queen.
