The Detroit side of Belle Isle is a no-wake zone, plus it is relatively narrow and very shallow in parts. I'd say there is no choice but to come down the Canadian side.

From the Michigan DNR website:

Quote:
DETROIT RIVER, ROUGE RIVER, AND WATERS WITHIN CITY LIMITS - WC-82-97-001.

(A) WORDS AND PHRASES. All words and phrases used in this section shall be construed and have the same meaning as those words and phrases defined in the natural resources and environmental protection act, as amended, being MCL 324.101 et seq.: MSA 13A.101 et seq.

(B) PROHIBITIONS. On the waters of the Detroit River and the Rouge River, and those canals and channels connected thereto, located within the city limits, the following provisions apply:

(1) It shall be unlawful for the operator of a vessel to exceed a slow—no wake speed when within two hundred (200) feet of any shore, except:

(a) It shall be unlawful for the operator of a vessel to exceed a slow—no wake speed on the Detroit River when within four hundred (400) feet of any shore, from the western city of Detroit corporate limits to he St. Aubin marina.

(b) It shall be unlawful for the operator of a vessel to exceed a slow—no wake speed on that part of the Detroit River between the mainland shore and the north shore of Belle Isle, commencing from the St. Aubin marina to a line from the most eastern point of Belle Isle to Conners Creek extended.

(c) It shall be unlawful for the operator of a vessel to exceed a slow—no wake speed on that part of the Detroit River when within four hundred (400) feet of any shore, from Conners Creek extended to the eastern city of Detroit corporate limits.

It shall be unlawful, at any time, to operate a vessel at a speed in excess of forty (40) miles per hours (64 kilometers per hours).
And here is a chart of that area - note the depth on the Scott Middle Ground! (click to zoom the chart)
