Diamond Jack Boat Tours of Detroit River
Diamond Jack boat tours have been around a long time now giving great views of Canada, river traffic and our beautiful city of Detroit. You learn a lot during their two hour narrated tour on the busiest international waterway of the world. There are 2 different departure points: one is from the Rivard Plaza in downtown Detroit which offers views of the upper Detroit River and the other leaves from Wyandotte on two different scenic routes. Captain Bill Hoey from Grosse Ile is the owner. He purchased former Arnold Line Mackinac ferries and converted them into the sightseeing ships they use today. They will be celebrating 20 years next year. Let's hear a big freighter toot for that!
