For 30 years, The Sandpiper has given Toledoans adventures on the Maumee River. Docked in downtown Toledo at Promenade Park, the 65-foot, 100-passenger boat has offered river cruises and unique views of the Toledo skyline to groups, individuals and couples. In November, former operator Mary Dalby sold the boat to Paul and Jodie Lis, of J&M Cruise Lines. Mr. Lis, a commercial captain licensed with a 100-ton ship certification from the U.S. Coast Guard, has worked for Ms. Dalby for the past six years. The new operators will maintain The Sandpiper’s schedule from last year, still offering two-hour Thursday lunch cruises (11:30am), Saturday “Discover the River” cruises (10am), and sunset cruises on Sunday (8pm). Favored monthly events, such as cigar cruises (7pm on Tuesday, July 11), lighthouse cruises (12:30pm on Sunday, July 16), musical dinner cruises (6:30pm on Wednesday, July 12), among others, will also continue. The Sandpiper now accepts credit cards and have begun online bookings. Private cruises on the river are also available.
