Diamond Jacks River Tours is pleased to invite you along to enjoy the cool breeze of the Detroit River flowing from Lake St. Clair to Lake Erie, the magnificent views of downtown Detroit, all while feeling the cool mist and refreshing sun rays aboard a Diamond Jacks River Tour boat.

Passengers of all ages are able to rediscover feelings of joy associated with an expertly narrated river tour and being out on the water. All Aboard, Detroit! For a fun time!

We have three different boats and can accommodate any size group up to a maximum of 250 passengers.

Act now to reserve your Senior Group tour, at our Senior Rate of $17.00 per person. You will no longer have to worry about purchasing your ticket at the dock for a public sightseeing tour. You will be seated on a first-come, first-serve basis, but you can board as a group and sit together.

Private Senior Group Tours as well as Lunch & Dinner Cruises

When you charter a boat for your senior group we are able to best accommodate you and your group for our two-hour narrated tour. Senior Group Tours are available from May 1-October 31, so gather your group and call our office for scheduling opportunities. We have three different boats and can accommodate any size group up to a maximum of 250 passengers.

Lunch and Dinner aboard a Diamond Jack’s vessel is always a treat. Host your own lunch or dinner cruise from May-October. Call our office for recently-updated package rates and available sailing dates!

Staff was very friendly. It's kind of pricey, $70 for 2 adults & 2 kids. But worth the money. If you want to know more about Detroit & around the river it's definitely worth it. If we get a chance to back I will be doing this river tour again.read more

A few days ago I had the pleasure of bringing a small bus load of senior citizens down for one of Diamond Jack's boat rides/tours. I believe this is the 4th time I have brought a group down and, as always, the boat ride and narrated tour was just great. Yet, the boat crew, should be applauded because of the extra care and attention they give to people that need assistance loading on to the boat. Whether it was a guest that was just a little unsteady on the ramp, or a guest using a walker, or a manual wheelchair - the staff took good solid measures to make sure the guest was comfortable and safe getting loaded on and off the boat. And I loved some of the chatter on the bus on the way home; " That is the best $15 I have ever spent and the most fun I have had in years! And I learned a lot!" Keep up the great work Diamond Jacks!read more

Nice tour but almost missed the boat because their website says credit cards are accepted but their brochure says cash only. The nearest atm machine was half a mile awayread more

I highly recommend the Diamond Jack and the Diamond Belle boat trip to anyone that wants an outstanding experience on the Detroit River waterfront. The staff is friendly and helpful, the catered food on the boat is great and you can not find a better way to show off the beautiful waterfront that Detroit and Windsor share. This is an experience that is different from any run of the mill corporate event and also provides a great opportunity to take customers on. Don't wait to take your friends, family, visitors or customers for a boat ride on the Diamond Belle or Diamond Jack!read more

We took a group of Seniors (15) down and we were a little apprehensive with the gangway being so steep, but the crew was EXTREMELY helpful. They totally managed our scooter and wheelchair residents. The tour itself was wonderful. Very informative, giving both history and current details. I would DEFINETLY recommend this activity with Diamond Jacks River Tours.read more

Pretty unorganized. You can't buy tickets except while in line. Single board and exit ramp which makes for long times. Could cut time off the tour by not going past connecting bridge to Canada. Oh and they take credit/debit even though the website and brochures onsite say cash only. Could've saved ATM fees. Anyhow the information on the tour was okay and the boating near Canadian border was unexpected and welcome. The tour guide was actually clear and seemed to actually enjoy his job which was nice. A few tweaks and this tour could be even more fantastic.read more

Going on my 3rd tour this afternoon. I think it's very nice... 2 full hours of touring is well worth the price.
