Patrick Livingston on Summer Discovery Cruises

Monday, July 2, 2018

Summer Discovery Cruises offer anyone interested in exploring Lake Erie, the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair the opportunity to get out on the water for an educational experience. Cruisers can learn about many aspects of the lakes, from lighthouses, shipwrecks, bootleggers and history and culture of the region to fish, ecology, restoration and wind, waves and water — and much more, depending on the cruise theme.

There are more than 20 cruise themes to choose from. Most cruises range from 2.5 hours to 4 hours on the water and range in price from $15-$30 per person. Ages six and older are welcome on the cruises.

Patrick Livingston, author of Eight Steamboats: Sailing Through the Sixties and Summer Dreams: The Story of Bob-lo Island, will be doing readings on the following days:
