$8 for Two-Hour Boat Tour on the Detroit River (Up to $17 Value)

Aboard one of three historic riverboats, passengers take in panoramic views of the river and the Detroit skyline. Guides narrate each voyage, pointing out the sites of historic happenings, famous riverside landmarks, and the final resting place of Tim Allen's first motorcycle. Boats depart every Thursday–Sunday from the Rivard Plaza downtown for tours of the upper river and from the Bishop Park dock in Wyandotte for runs on the lower river.

Diamond Jack's River Tours

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.
