Windsor River Cruises: Lower Detroit River Sightseeing Cruise
Wednesday, August 14, 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm
12 pm Boarding Time
Cruise the historic shoreline of Amherstburg! Great for both residents and visitors. Depart Kings Navy Yard in Downtown Amherstburg at 12:30 p.m. Along the way, enjoy views of Fort Malden, Boblo Island, Millionaires Shore, and many other significant historical sites. Sail over the site of the first naval battle where the U.S. ship, the Cuyahoga, was captured by the British.
Learn about the history of Boblo Island and see the palatial homes on its “gold coast.” After cruising through the “hole in the wall,” we head down the Livingston Channel, and out to the Detroit River Light before returning to the Kings Navy Yard at 2:30 p.m.
Enjoy a light lunch or a snack from the a la carte menu while listening to a live-audio commentary on the history and cultural significance of the Detroit River and surrounding areas.
Reserve your spot on our Lower Detroit River cruise before it sells out!
