Prohibition Boat Tour

Saturday, September 26, 2020
6:00 - 8:00 PM

During the Prohibition years, the Detroit River was a hub of illegal activity with citizens living in cities along the river taking advantage of its close proximity to Canada. Rumrunning, Michigan’s second-largest* industry during Prohibition. Enterprising folks learned to navigate the river and utilize its natural resources to their advantage.


We depart from Wyandotte at 7 pm—SHARP!
