Scenic afternoon tour of the Detroit River
Sightseeing cruises are the most affordable way for visitors and local residents to get out on the water for an enjoyable, afternoon scenic tour of the Detroit River. Enjoy a light lunch or a snack from our a la carte menu while listening to a live audio commentary about the cultural significance and history of the Detroit River and surrounding region.
Depart in front of Caesars Windsor in the Riverfront Festival Plaza before heading out to cruise the Canadian shoreline. Our commentary will teach you about the Prohibition days, the curse of Peche Island, the assassination of Charlie Brooks and the commemorative Peace Fountain, the new water retention plant, the history of Hiram Walkers, and plenty of other interesting topics.
We cross the river at the Livingston Light, and then enjoy views of the River Walk, Joe Louis Arena, Belle Isle, Cobo Hall, and other historic sights along the Detroit shoreline as we view the beautiful waterfront from a unique perspective.
Finally, we cross back under the Ambassador Bridge to learn about the Plywood Palace, the Sculpture Gardens and Dieppe’s historical connection to Windsor.
