What you'll do

We will leave the dock at 6:30 PM (it is recommended guests arrive 15 minutes before departure time) then head out out onto the water until approximately 9 PM or when the sun sets (different times of year may call for different departure/arrival times. We can discuss this via phone or email before the trip). We will cruise the Eastside Cleveland shoreline until we reach the Cuyahoga River upon which we will head upstream through historic and beautiful Downtown Cleveland.

During the trip you can expect to see early 1900's through modern architecture. Much of it was previously used in the shipping, manufacturing, and farming industries but has now been re-purposed for modern day. Some of the coolest things you will see are the numerous draw bridges we will encounter along the way. Some raise up, some swing open, and some are so big we can boat right under them.

After about 45 minutes heading upstream we will turn around and head back to lake where you will encounter a gorgeous Lake Erie sunset as we cruise back to the dock.

I'm a licensed Captain through the United States Coast guard and a licensed guide through the state of Ohio. I have been a captain on Lake Erie for 5 years. I specialize in boat tours along the Downtown Cleveland shorline and upstream the Cuyahoga River. . I have lived in Cleveland for 28 years and my tours offer extensive knowledge on the architecture, wildlife, and curiosities you will see along the way. In my spare time I love to fish on Lake Erie and in Vermont, play music, and study the aquatic wildlife of Ohio, especially Cleveland and Lake Erie.

Great boat ride with an insight on Cleveland from the water. Daniel is an expert with his friend Sara and two lovely ladies from Pittsburgh shared nice conversation... What's not to like!?!!!

Small, casual, fun and informative! Perfect for us, since I was expecting a scripted tour guide using a scratchy microphone to chatter endlessly to the tourists. Instead, we got a personal tour from Captain Dan who let us ask questions or just sit quietly and enjoy a beautiful outing. Daniel is a fishing boat expert, too.

Danny was an exceptional captain. We will certainly employ his services again. He took extra care to ensure we were comfortable and satisfied. He sought to make our lake time exactly what we wanted.

Seeing Cleveland from the river and from Lake Erie was a wonderful and unique experience. Daniel was very professional but interesting and informative. The boat was small enough that our trip felt intimate, but large enough for us to feel safe!
