Built in 1984 in Maumee, Ohio the 100-passenger Sandpiper boat has been providing enjoyable sailing experiences along the Maumee River ever since. With a maximum cruising speed of seven knots, the 65-foot boat is docked in downtown Toledo, Ohio and has both public and private cruises available.
From June through September, the Sandpiper schedules various cruises that range from a 2-hour “Discover the River” tour that takes passengers passed the impressive downtown skyline, down the river to the busy Port of Toledo and then up river passing beautiful mansions and yacht clubs to a “Picnic Lunch” tour with lunch provided.
There are also specialty cruises on holidays and, four times a season, a 4-hour tour travels out Maumee Bay to the historic Toledo Harbor Light. During the month of October, the Sandpiper offers “Fall Color” tours and a “Halloween Boo Cruise” for the kiddies.
Prices for the cruises vary from $12 for adults and $6 for kids under 12 for the “Discover the River” tour to $30 per person for the Fourth of July and Labor Day fireworks cruises.
