African Queen Canal Cruise
Life Style

Film buffs will know it from the 1951 movie of the same name starring Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. Taking a ride on the famous speedboat is one of the best things to do in Key Largo!

The African Queen was built in England in 1912. She was still in service when she appeared in the 1951 John Huston movie. When she finally retired from international work in 1982, she became the pride and joy of Key Largo. Now a National Historic site, you can actually take a ride on this steamboat!

Completely restored, take a ride through the waters of Key Largo along the Port Largo Canals and through the Atlantic Ocean. You’ll see local points of interest and panoramic views of the Keys! You can even ask the Captain for a turn at the helm!

There are five cruises daily to choose from: 10 AM, 12 PM, 2 PM, 4 PM, and 6 PM. Each cruise lasts an hour and a half. Tickets cost $59 for adults.
