One of our fondest memories of Windsor was a short cruise on the Detroit River aboard the Aurora Borealis. It was our first activity after checking into the Travelodge, right across Riverside Drive from the boat. We recommend it as a great orientation tour of the many sights to been seen both in Detroit (USA) and Windsor (Canada).
Cost for the one hour sightseeing cruise is $10 for adults and $5 for children five and under. In addition, the Aurora Borealis is also available for lunch cruises, Sunday brunch, and dinner dances or private charters. Click the website below for more details.
