July 2018 Newsletter: Sailing Fun All Summer Long!
- posted in: Blog
Cruisin’ Through the Summer
Long summer days are ahead in the month of July and what better way to take a break from the heat than a breezy ride on our sightseeing tours! Relax and enjoy the beautiful sights along the Detroit River waterfront on our 2-hour narrated tours. While you’re cruising, don’t forget to grab a snack or a refreshing cold beverage from our snack bar on board! Our featured drinks include Miller Lite, Molson, Summer Shandy and Atwater Dirty Blonde.
Our sightseeing tours sail whether it’s rain or shine every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday! Join us as we depart at 1:00 PM and 3:30 PM from our two dock locations – Detroit Rivard Plaza Dock and Wyandotte Bishop Park Dock. Each cruise features different attractions upriver and downriver. Check out the Tour Maps on our website for more information! One attraction you’ll want to keep your ears open for is the mysterious Windsor Hum! The unpredictable noise experienced by our Canadian neighbors has everyone baffled! Watch a video featured on The New York Times of one resident’s experience. Will you hear it aboard one of our cruises?
This month we’re offering $15 tours on Thursdays and Fridays from both docks at all departure times. What are you waiting for? Get your July Coupon today by visiting our coupon page!
Parking Made Easy with “Where to Park” Videos
A question we often get is where to park when coming down to our docks for sightseeing tours or private charter boats. For ease of direction, we’ve added “Where to Park” videos on the Dock Direction pages of our website. You can now either follow the listed directions or watch the “Where to Park” videos which take you along the ride at every turn until you reach the parking lot.

We love seeing all your photos on board our boats! The Diamond Jack’s Photo Contest will continue to run through September so keep sharing your experience with us!
For a chance to win 2 FREE tickets for future rides, post a photo from a past cruise on one of our boats using #SailDiamondJack on social media. Each week we’ll go through all submitted photos and choose one lucky winner!
