The boat left Wyandotte and took us around Grosse Ile, Boblo and Amherstburg, Ontario. We saw freighters and the island where BASF has a lodge for executives-quite impressive. The boat was full and we tried to stay in the covered part, and the temperature was just right. I could see bringing a jacket, if cool, but the warm breeze was... More

We like to take guests to the area on the cruise (from either location). We watch for specials so we can get a bargain. Narration is always on the spot and accurate. It is a good way to see Detroit (on the upper cruise) and the factories that were part of 'the arsenal of democracy', downriver life and mogal estates... More

We took the Diamond Jacks tour from Atwater street. We went towards Belle Isle circled around it then headed for Ambassador bridge. Over all the boat trip was pleasant. The boat was clean, the personal were friendly and well groomed. There were drinks and snacks for sale on board the boat. Our only complaint was the narration of the sites... More

This was a wonderful way to spend 2 hours. Very relaxing, crew is friendly and the guide did a great job of telling the history for both the American and the Canadian sides.

The boat was very nice, very clean, friendly staff. The narrated tour pointed out all the highlights. The problem is: there aren't a lot of highlights. There's lots of dead space along the way. They could improve by telling us a little more of the history of the city, perhaps. It's pleasant enough. Some of the Canadian stuff was interesting.... More

They have two tours - one that leaves from Rivard Plaza in Detroit which they call their Upper Detroit River Tour, and one that leaves from Bishop Park in Wyandotte which they call their Lower Detroit River Tour. We took the Upper River Tour. It's not in Lincoln Park, that's where their PO BOX is. This should be listed in... More
