It was wonderful seeing our skyline and Belle Isle from the other side. Hurry on down and see what Detroit has been doing. September is the end of the season to go on the boat.

It was even better the second time. Got there an hour early at the Bishop Park location and we celebrated brother-in-law's birthday on the boat. Beautiful weather, great ride! Can't wait to do it again next year.

This is worth doing once for anybody living in or around Detroit. The tour was nice, and the information was great. The staff was helpful and there was really nothing to complain about. I do recommend trying to get to the top deck, front and possibly left side of boat if possible. There you will see all the sights!

The Detroit location is located in a nice, family friendly park. There's no marina and no real signage for the tour. The boat docks at the riverbank (behind the carousel) and they bring out a ramp for the passengers to board.

The boat ride is good. There is NO parking!! Had to run a mile after dropping my wife off at the boat entrance. Not sure if I would ever do this again. The guy in charge of the parking lot was extremely rude!!!

Get there up to a hour before you sail if you want to sit on the upper deck in the front of the boat. It was a very relaxing & enjoyable trip!!

From Our Editors

The Detroit River's international waters stretch out for miles in either direction, winding along the Detroit skyline and kissing the Canadian border. As ships snake their way through the current, they pass lighthouses on small green islands, bridges stretched across overhead, and workers milling about on the riverside docks. Building on 20 years of boating, the captains of the Diamond Jack, Diamond Belle, and Diamond Queen let passengers take in these sights to the tune of guided narration as their ships' white and sea-foam green hulls slice through the water. The three ships safely gather up to 250 passengers on their panoramic upper decks or in protected lower cabins. Today, passengers on these storied steel decks can sip beer, wine, and soft drinks or nibble on snacks from an on-board snack bar during tours. Captains also pilot each ship on private group excursions, as well as school field trips past the river's ships, yacht clubs, parks, and docks.
