We've have been doing the night cruise with the Duc d' Orleans to the River Crab over in MI for many years now. Should wear layers of clothing as the weather can be very hot going to the River Crab. After your fantastic meal you board the boat for coffee, tea and dessert. It can become quite cool coming back... More

We have had two trips on the boat travelling the shoreline up above the bridge and then downstream for a jog. The only downside was the diesel fumes on the lower deck. When we changed course, the fumes weren't there. Both trips were free for the seniors of Sarnia. The Duc's staff is phenomenal with us oldies and those who... More

Book a ticket and GO - you won't regret it. Beautiful views and you learn lots of knowledge about the local area, history and petrochemical industries that line the St Clair River. It's a wonderful thing to do on a summer day. They offer lunch cruises - sandwiches and tea really - but it makes for a lovely afternoon out... More

We have been on this tour a few times now, it is quite fun when you have a group of people and quite reasonably priced, I will say the price of the booze is a bit high, for the little glasses you get. But overall the live music makes it a good night out. Be sure to get your tickets... More

The Duc is a boat that takes you up and down the river. The cruise is usually 3/4 hours long. It provides great bands and refreshments. A great time is had by all. It usually costs between $20-25 for a three hour cruise. Dinner is served on some if the outings.

We booked though Happy Good Time Tours, and once again our guide Peter picked a great trip. The St Claire river is what they used to call "sea foam" green, just beautiful a nice little snack/lunch all put on by the staff of sailors. About an hour and a half of contentment.

The Cruise was 3 hours long and great value for the money. The crew continually came around to clean up. The band on board was very good. The rest rooms were kept very clean and the bar people were very good and friendly and the atmosphere was a very nice laid back feeling. The captain kept the boat very close... More

This passenger vessel is well-manned and equipped for a two hour tour of the St. Clair River, which runs from Lake Huron to the Detroit River and beyond to Lake Erie. The tour begins in Sarnia and travels down river to Stag Island. The return trip hugs the American side, so both banks can be taken in. The charm of... More

Try to get out on this boat near sunset for some spectacular views of the Bluewater Bridge! Heading downriver around stag island or up river into the Lake depends on the wind conditions. Typically, one or the other will give you a smooth sail! Add a DJ and food and this shows the best side of Sarnia!
