Introducing The YACHT ROCKS RiverSPHERE by Jetset!
12 - "FUN-raising" sightseeing river cruise cocktail parties taking place aboard the Duc d’ Orleans II.
"Yacht Rocks" will be setting sail in 2024 on a selection of Sunday afternoons between 1pm-4pm along the scenic international blue waters of the St. Clair River that separates the Canada-US border between Sarnia, Ontario and Port Huron, Michigan at the mouth of Lake Huron.
Come enjoy an afternoon escape on the water while we present a nauticaly themed Yacht Rock playlist from the 60's, 70's and 80's sprinkled with tropical rock anthems, reggae, disco and love songs that are perfect for a "day-date".
Under the watchful eye of the Captain and his experienced crew of 6, Jetset's “Yacht Rocks” RiverSPHERE Experience will cast off from downtown Sarnia on the 175-capacity sight-seeing boat that was built in 1987, measures 84’ long, 29’ wide and cruises at roughly 8 knots.
The “Duke” is located at 297 Front St. North in Sarnia in the flower-lined walkway along the water’s edge of Mackenzie Park on Sarnia Bay just minutes from the Bluewater Bridge and steps from fine restaurants and hotels.
The vessel is certified and inspected by Transport Canada, The United States Coast Guard and Homeland Security.
There is no passport required for boarding.
Upon boarding each week, all passangers will have access to a complimentary taco and nacho station throughout the event that will feature vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, and gluten-free/celiac options.
Two (2) drink tickets will be provided with each purchased ticket and a cash bar will also be available for additional purchases.

Jetset Event Management proudly supports Ronald McDonald House - Southwestern Ontario's "Cart with a Heart".
Most families don’t plan to have a child in the hospital.
But when they do, they usually end up there with only the items in their pockets, purse, or car.
Many spend countless hours in the hospital and quite often, don’t have the resources to buy food, drinks, or other items to make this challenging time a bit more comfortable.
The “Cart with a Heart” is a mobile hospitality cart that allows volunteers at LHSC’s Children’s Hospital to bring coffee, tea and snacks to families staying close by their child’s bedside.
It supports and comforts individuals who spend extended periods of time at the hospital with their critically ill children.
It brings families with children in-hospital and care-givers simple comforts directly to their child’s bedside to help pass the time.
It comes rolling into patient rooms, carrying a multitude of goodies – so that Nurses, Doctors, and patient families who may not feel comfortable leaving their child during treatment can have a moment of peace.
From activities for siblings, to coffees for mom and dad, the cart is a one-stop shop for the “little things.”
An extension of Ronald McDonald House – SWO, the “Cart with a Heart” provides the same warmth and home-like atmosphere for families who need to stay close by.
It’s a unique way to bring the compassionate hospitality of Ronald McDonald House directly to children in the hospital and their family members.
A portion of each ticket sold will help support "Cart with a Heart".
