Summer Sun & Sightseeing Fun

Picture this: You’re outside with a blowing breeze at your back. Above you, the warmth of the sun radiates down. You scan the open horizon and get lost in the repetitive flow of the current. Sounds nice, right?

A ride with Diamond Jack is anything but typical. We know what it takes to make lasting summer memories because we’ve been doing it since 1991. Our friendly and engaging crew keeps the good times rolling on the water. Whether you’re a first-timer or a regular, we’ll make sure this your best summer yet.

Summer is well underway, which means it’s time to maximize your fun! Do yourself a favor and ditch a stuffy weekend inside for a choice between three different Detroit river sightseeing tours instead. Our sightseeing tours are a surefire way to kick off your summer festivities with dozens of attractions to see along the way.

Whether it’s rain or shine, Diamond Jack’s River Tours offers sightseeing tours to the public every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday! Tours depart from one of two dock locations – Detroit Cullen Plaza Dock and Wyandotte Bishop Park Dock. Depending on what you’d like to see, you can choose from tours at 1:00 PM and 3:30 PM.

And while you’re aboard, don’t forget to grab a snack or a refreshing cold beverage from our onboard snack bar. We keep Miller Lite, Molson, Summer Shandy and Atwater Dirty Blonde in stock!

Each cruise features an interactive 2-hour narrated tour with various attractions along the way. You can learn more about your options by reading our Tour Maps. No matter if you’re adventuring upriver or cruising downriver, you are sure to encounter captivating sights.

One attraction you’ll want to keep your ear out for is the Windsor Hum! The unpredictable noise resonates from Zug Island, another site on the tour. The sound is so pervasive that even VICE news wrote a feature story on it.

The origin of the mysterious sound still baffles scientists and our Canadian neighbors, but Captain Jack might be able to shed some light on the subject! Will you hear it during your next cruise?

There’s never been a better time to sail with Diamond Jack. Add a sightseeing tour coupon into the mix and it becomes a must-do! You can snag your $16 sightseeing tour today by visiting our discount coupons page.

Ask the Captain / Winners

Friendliness is our forte at Diamond Jack’s River Tours. Next time you sail with us feel free to ask the captain any questions you have. You just might get free tickets from us for doing so!

Last month’s ask the captain winner is June C. from Monroe, MI. June was curious about the travel abilities of our fleet. Specifically, she wanted to know the farthest round trip that could be sailed without having to refuel.

Parking Directions to Get Here Faster

We don’t want you missing out on any of the good times on board. Avoid any confusion when traveling to our docks with our easy to follow directions. We’ve taken the time to break down how to get to each dock from all major routes.
