Absolutely awesome AWESOM AWESOME. The boat is in a very easy to find location and boarding, depending on volume, is relatively a breeze. They do take card or cash which is also helpful so it it doesn't matter what you have.Also the location of the boat and dock has a little Cafe and snack shop right before you board and then the boat has a few and I do mean a few snacks for you to enjoy during the cruise. Be aware that most everything from a bag of chips to a water is $2.00 and up, so be prepared.The cruise is very smooth and informative and you also get some good sights from on the river. I remember this cruise used to go under the Belle Isle Bridge but I guess it doesn't do that anymore. However the cruise still does go slightly past the Ambassador Bridge and you can see the entirety of the Riverwalk, even the proposed section.The cruise runs about an hour and I took the last cruise of the day so the temperature was more mellow. All in all its a great activity to do with kids, teens, and adults.read more

They waited for me and my mom after boarding. I appreciate that because it was a long walk up the river walk to get there. Also, the staff was friendly and the ride was refreshing.read more

Good time out on the water. There's alot of historic landmarks along the river. It's nothing fancy but for $15.00 you can't beat it.

Absolutely outstanding. First, easy to find and easy parking. Second, all of the employees were outstanding greeting everyone and explain the Covid rules and regulations. The tour information was perfect. Just the right amount. (Great job tour guide guy 😊). Social distancing and mask wearing rules adhered to very nicely. I highly recommend Diamond Jack's and will be back!read more

One hour tour up the Detroit River with a commentator pointing out buildings and places of interest. Then up the river looking at Windsor, also with the commentator pointing out places of interest. Learned a lot about Detroit that I never knew and I’ve lived in this area since 1989.THE PRICE CAN’T BE BEAT! $10 US for Seniors and it was $15 for my 17 year old grandson. He was visiting from Grand Rapids and throughly enjoyed the tour😁. Snack bar with soda, wine, beer and snacks for sale. $3 for soda.I recommend this excursion for ALL age groups. Children are welcome aboard. Not sure of the charge.read more
