Roaring 20s Prohibition Boat Cruise

New Date – During Prohibition, Detroit took advantage of its location on the international border. With 75% of liquor entering the United States through the “Detroit-Windsor Funnel,” the Detroit River became the epicenter of the booze smuggling trade.

Join us for a special boat tour on the Detroit River. On the largest of the Diamond Jack boats, we will cruise to the eastern end of the Detroit River, then west past the Ambassador Bridge.

There will be a cash bar available–what’s a Prohibition tour without booze? There will also be prizes! Every attendee receives a special prohibition treat.

Your guide (a descendant of bootleggers and Detroit historian) will regale you of stories of those brave men and women who saw Prohibition as an economic opportunity. She will point out areas of interest along the Detroit and Windsor shorelines and will also display her collection of Prohibition artifacts.

If you wish to dress in Twenties style, please do so!

The Peacock Room will have a special pop-up shop on the boat with Prohibition-inspired jewelry, barware, flasks, and other 1920s-style finds available.

No passport needed.
