2018 Sightseeing Tours
June 7 – September 2

Dive into Downtown Detroit’s vibrant summer atmosphere this weekend! Immerse yourself in the pulse of the city by dancing the weekend away to different sounds at the 2018 Detroit Dance City Festival. If friendly competition is something you enjoy, the Once Around Belle Isle Race lets patrons paddle either a 7-mile and 2.5-mile course of their choosing on Saturday, August 11. Also, on Saturday, engineering enthusiasts, architecture admirers, bikers, runners and more can catch views of various Downtown buildings during the Open Streets Detroit project. No matter how you choose to spend your Saturday, you can always kick back in Campus Martius Park to catch one of the two screenings of Marvel’s Black Panther as part of Movie Night in the D. With a near-perfect forecast, there should be nothing stopping you from enjoying an exciting time in the Motor City!

Get in on the fun this weekend in Detroit! The Belle Isle Art Fair will be going on August 4-5 where you can see and buy amazing artwork from over 100 artists with food trucks, beer and wine tents, and live music! If you’re hungry, check out Detroit Burger Week all weekend long for $5 burgers at participating restaurants. For a rockin’ time on a Friday night, enjoy the free Chevrolet Rockin’ on the Riverfront concert featuring new artists every Friday at 7:30 PM until August 17th. And that’s not all! Detroit will be jam packed with things to do all weekend long.

While you’re down in Detroit, make time for a cruise on the Detroit River to make the most of these last summer days! Our sightseeing tours will be sailing all of August through September 2nd every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Meet us at our Detroit or Wyandotte Dock at 1:00 PM and 3:30 PM to cruise the Detroit River, soak in the sun and take in the spectacular sights! There’s no better way to end the summer strong.

The gangways to board our boats have been steep due to consistently high waters this year. The Detroit River has been experiencing water levels that are 3 feet higher than normal throughout the season. Our Diamond Jack crew will be at the dock ready to assist handicap passengers on board.

Don’t miss out on our deal of the month! In August, cruise our Wyandotte Dock river tours for just $15 per person on all days and all times. Visit our coupon page for more details and to grab yours today!
