Detroit is a pretty cool city to explore, and whether you are FROM Detroit, or just visiting, there is always a new and fun way to see what makes it so special - welcome to Diamond Jack's River Tours!
Diamond Jack's River Tours let you experience this Michigan city from a whole new perspective - from the water!
There are two departure points for the sightseeing tours - either the Rivard Plaza for the Upper Detroit River Tours, or Bishop Park for the Lower Detroit River Tours.
These tours give you two hours of fun, where the narration can fill you in on all the fun facts about the region, as well as the river!
Also offering private charters, Diamond Jack's River Tours are where you can learn about history, whist taking in the views from the Diamond Belle, Diamond Queen or Diamond Jack. It's a fun experience for the kids, especially if they haven't been on a boat before.
The staff are friendly, and it's super safe, so all you have to do is worry about how much fun you're going to have!
Running from June to September, from Thursdays to Sundays, the tours can be booked in advance, or just booked on the day from the docks!
Make sure you take a camera, because there is a LOT to be experienced from the grand Detroit River - and it certainly makes for a fun and unique family day out in Michigan!
