Just looking for something cool and different to do. The morning tour of Detroit's Historical Canals was way cool. A fun and adventurous history lesson. The canal waters were calm and serene, the few minutes we spent on the actual river was exhilarating and OMG...More

We had a good time and learned a lot. Definitely recommended! We took a picnic and enjoyed the river after at the local park.

This was a wonderful and enlightening tour! The guide to participant ratio was good, so even a beginning paddler could do this with confidence. Prior to launching, excellent information was given by a U-M professor of Environmental Studies, regarding the historical sites and conservation efforts....More
