Before the invention of Lake Michigan, Chicagoans were forced to take their speedboats to the local YMCA and do nanosecond laps, or they went to the nearest kiddie pool for donuts. Celebrate this magnificent liquid innovation with today's Groupon: for $13, you get a 30-minute Seadog Chicago Speedboat Lake Tour from Seadog Cruises.
Embark on this Seadog Cruise from the south side of Navy Pier, a Chicago entertainment staple along Lake Michigan, to see a variety of iconic sites. Amp up the sightseeing with a 30-minute speedboat lake tour and zoom along, below, and above the water while racing from Navy Pier toward Museum Campus. Tour takers will be able to enjoy Chicago's skyline, as well as the informative narration from the mouth of the sea captain.
A Seadog tour is a once-in-an-hour opportunity to show out-of-town guests the city, as well as a way for Chicagoans to enjoy the lake that doesn't involve grenade fishing. Be sure to check the website for schedule and availability.
Since 1996, the staff at Seadog Cruises has welcomed explorers aboard sophisticated, open-air speedboats for city tours. Over the years, they’ve led more than two million sightseers through Baltimore and Chicago on cruises that elucidate city histories, paying special attention to landmarks such as Baltimore’s Naval Reserve Center and Chicago’s Tribune Tower. Their fleet of sea crafts uses low-sulfur diesel and a four-stroke engines that produce lower emissions than older models, allowing eco-conscious passengers to rest easy and fish to finally open their windows for some fresh water.
