A 90-Minute Private Trip aboard the Actual 1951 Movie Steamboat


This tour is for 1 or 2 guests. I can take up to 14 guests by customizing your tour. However, the vehicle used for the tour depends on the number of guests in your tour. If there are more than 2 guests, please email for a customized quote.

The boat was built in Lytham, England, in 1912, to shuttle cargo, missionaries and hunting parties across the Victoria Nile and Lake Albert, between the Belgian Congo and Uganda. A movie was made about this boat in 1951, starring Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn. After the movie, she stayed in Africa until 1968. In 2011, Lance and Suzanne Holmquist signed a long-term lease to restore the boat in time for her centennial celebration. She is now available for private cruises in Key Largo, and is registered a National Historic Site.

See photos on loan from a family photo album, during your cruise. One shows Humphrey Bogart without his tupe!

Itinerary

Enjoy a drive to Key Largo, south of Miami, to the Upper Florida Keys. On arrival, you will board the famous African Queen, for a 90-minute cruise with Captain Lance Holmquist. The boat has been restored to how it looked in the movie.
