TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Captain Tim Feasby has spent years giving lighthouse tours on Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Now Captain Feasby will give maritime tours aboard the Spirit of America 2.

The vessel is a restored 1970 Navy motorwhale. During the Vietnam War, destroyers launched the Spirit of America 2 and similar vessels to rescue sailors and occasionally pilots.

Feasby offers tours from historic to nighttime cruises.

He has made a number of tours available from historic to nighttime cruises.

"And that's really relaxing, we go out and have a good time downtown," Feasby said. "And people get to see everything lit up. The skyway bridge, the bank building, beautiful."

The vessel is Coast Guard inspected. Each cruise is $15 and the boat can hold up to 19 people.

To book a cruise on the boat, visit the Maritime River Tour website.
