Down the river

. June 27, 2013.

All aboard! Discover the River Cruise is back for another summer season in Toledo. Every Saturday morning through September 28 the 100-seat Sandpiper Boat will venture down the Maumee River for a family-oriented and relaxing cruise. Some of the two-hour cruises sail down the Maumee, where participating aquatic adventurers will see the Veterans Glass-city Skyway as well as Toledo’s bustling port and shipyard. Others travel upriver to see the stately homes, yacht clubs and wildlife that exist on the mighty banks of the Maumee. Families are encouraged to bring a picnic breakfast or lunch to eat while enjoying the beauty of the river and the company of fellow Toledoans. The ship sets sail at 10am sharp at the Jefferson Street Dock on the corner of Jefferson Ave. and Summit St. in downtown Toledo, so don’t be late! Adults ride for $15, children under 12 for $7. 419-537-1212. —GMK
