The boat

Two-hour cruises are $500 and launch daily at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Four-hour cruises are $800 and launch daily at 11 a.m. (brunch) and 5 p.m. (sunset). Concert cruises of 4-5 hrs are also $800, timing flexible around performances.

Up to six guests are permitted on the boat. (Please note that we can accomodate up to 8 guests with a Master captain for an additional $300.)

At Sycorax Cruises, we’re here to celebrate you — a birthday, a bachelor/ette party, an anniversary or engagement, or just a relaxing summer day on the water — while doing no harm to Mother Nature.

We proudly offer the only 100% electric boat cruises in Southeast Michigan. Our daily luxury cruises voyage over the Detroit straits (Detroit River, Lake St Clair and Lake Erie) from May through October.

We provide: U.S. Coast Guard-certified captain, complimentary glass of champagne, selection of nonalcoholic beverages, coolers, ice, cups, and openers for additional beverages, WiFi, life jackets, private portajohn on board, floaties and other water toys, eco-friendly sunscreen, festive decor for special occasions, and dry bags for storage. Four-hour cruises also include uncommonly good charcuterie boards.

Boat rules: Sorry, no pets, no glassware, no fishing. Softsoled shoes or barefeet only, please.

On the Sycorax, you get all of the joy and none of the guilt of pleasure cruising. No polluting gas fumes. No noise. Just you and the natural beauty of the Great Lakes.

Cruises depart from Stanton Yards in downtown Detroit, directly across from Belle Isle.

Experience the power of silence aboard the X Shore Eelex 8000 cruiser, which melds Swedish maritime craftsmanship with innovative technology solutions that contribute to a future free of fossil fuels. X Shore has won multiple awards for design and innovation, including the German Design Award Gold (2022), the European Power Boat of the Year (2022), and the CICERO Shades of Green AS Dark Green rating (the highest rating).

Gas-powered boats are bad — like, really bad — for the environment. Did you know that a five-hour cruise on a standard yacht burns as much gas as a car would consume driving from New York to L.A.?

By choosing an electric cruise, you’re eliminating all that environmental waste. That’s the equivalent of planting six trees per four-hour cruise aboard the Sycorax.

And we’ve taken the guesswork out of booking a private boat charter. Our No-BS promise to you: one price only. Unlike most charters, we bill no fuel surcharge, no captain’s fee or insurance, no separate taxes, and we accept no gratuities. One and done.
