We guarantee that this special night cruise will bring out your “Oooo’s” and “Awww’s.” As a modified version of our Night Watch cruise, you’ll be impressed with our discussion of navigation, nighttime fish behavior, and star-gazing. But when the nighttime sky begins to light up with fireworks at 10 p.m. you’ll have a front row seat to view the pyrotechnics. As a special treat we’ll explore a little bit of fireworks history as well. “Oooooo….”

Birds, Boats and Booze

Many things drew people to the St. Clair River Delta Flats area.
