2017 Detroit River Public Tours Recap
- posted in: Blog
The votes are in! 2017 was another wonderful year for our sightseeing tours along the Detroit River. We enjoyed giving our passengers tours of Detroit and watching the smiles on their faces as we cruised along the river. Let’s recap a few of our most treasured moments of 2017:
This year, our passengers enjoyed free wi-fi on our river boats so they could feel free to upload pics of the tour for their friends and family to see on social media. One of the best parts of sailing the Detroit River is snapping pictures along the way. Documenting your travels is a way to look back on fond memories and a way to share your experiences on social media. We truly hope you enjoyed sharing your pictures of your time spent on Diamond Jack’s tours during our photo contest. We had a blast seeing all the pictures you guys posted from our public sightseeing tours, and we always love to see more!
Witnessing History On Our Detroit River Cruise
2017 on the Detroit River was a sailing season full of history lessons, that’s for sure. This year, our passengers got to observe replicas of Christopher Columbus’ Niña and Pinta—the famous ships that he sailed the seas in. This August, the two ships made a stop in Wyandotte, Michigan. While passing by on our sightseeing tours, our passengers got to have a look and get a feel for the 15th century!
Another historic boat came to visit Detroit in 2017… This year, our customers got to see the Boblo Boat during our Detroit River tours. A historic icon of Detroit, Boblo Boat first launched in 1910! We were more than happy to share another piece of Detroit history with our passengers.
Detroit Events on the River
From events like Detroit River Days to watching the Detroit fireworks during the Fourth of July holiday, it was certainly a season to remember. We truly appreciated being in your company during our Detroit River boat tours, but even more importantly, we’re glad to have provided you with a fun time. We hope you’ll join us again next season for our 2018 Sightseeing Tours starting June 7th!
