Mother's Day on the Nautica

When: Sun., May 8 2011

Even if she doesn't know her bow from her stern — or her Mary Ann from her Ginger — Mom would likely dig spending part of her day cruising the Lake Erie waters on board the Nautica Queen. Besides the awesome views of the city's skyline, she'll be treated to an unlimited buffet, a full bar, a DJ, dancing, and the always-entertaining sight of skippers in natty uniforms. Both a brunch and an early dinner option are available. The brunch cruise runs from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. with a 10 a.m. boarding time; all-inclusive cost is $38.68 for adults and $18.73 for kids 11 and younger. The dinner cruise happens from 4 to 7 p.m. with a 3 p.m. boarding time; all-inclusive cost is $44.55 for adults and $22.25 for kids. Yes, it is a three-hour tour. But this is not the S.S. Minnow, and we'll almost guarantee you won't end up on a tropical island. For reservations, call 216-696-8888 or go to You'll find the ship docked at 1153 Main Ave. on the west bank of the Flats. — Niehaus
