Jack’s Happenings

Here at Diamond Jack’s River Tours (DJRT), we look forward to our summer boat rides, but we’re also busy during the winter months. We’re currently working on getting our boats in good shape for the coming sailing season. Our visitors can look forward to new carpeting in all three of our boats: The Diamond Queen, The Diamond Belle and The Diamond Jack. The Diamond Jack will be going into drydock shortly for its check-up and overhaul, and The Diamond Queen will be getting a new ceiling. Climb aboard our new gangway on The Queen this upcoming season and experience our revamped mini-ships. We hope you enjoy the new improvements we’ve made to our boats!

Boat Facts

Featuring: The Diamond Jack

Catch a ride on The Diamond Jack, one of our three mini-ships. Whether you’re looking for some entertainment with a group of friends, family, coworkers or a school group, a 2-hour cruise on this delightful mini-ship is the perfect choice. The Diamond Jack, originally named “Emerald Isle,” was first constructed in 1955. The boat had a few different homes before it arrived at Diamond Jack’s River Tours. It started off being used by the Beaver Island Ferry Company located on Lake Michigan.

In 1962, the Emerald Isle was used as a ferry for the Arnold Line Ferry Company, and in 1982, the boat was used for charters in Milwaukee. Finally, in 1991, the mini-ship was bought by Diamond Jack’s River Tours and renamed “The Diamond Jack.” Now, you can book a Private Charter or take a Sightseeing Tour on The Diamond Jack. Enjoy a serene cruise down the Detroit River in a Private Charter including delightful catering options or try our Sightseeing Tours narrated by one of our staff members. Book your Private Charter on The Diamond Jack now for a celebration to remember with a group of friends, family, colleagues or schoolmates.

Themes For Our Private Charters

There are so many different ways to enjoy a celebration on our Private Charters. We’ve seen a multitude of exciting themes over the years from our guests. Take a trip to Margaritaville in a cocktail-themed celebration with a group of close friends. Try your hand at golf in a putt-putt gathering with your sports buddies. Get spooky in October with a Halloween costume party, or make some magic with a magician-themed river boat Private Charter. Another popular festivity we like to see is the ever-popular prom party! Whatever your theme idea may be, our Private Charters are the perfect place to make it happen.
