The Tall Ship Windy is the official flagship of Chicago. With its sails filled by the Windy City's blowhard politics, the 148-foot-long, traditional four-masted schooner whisks passengers along Lake Michigan on a number of 75-minute tours. Tours depart from Navy Pier and are guided by US Coast Guard-licensed captains, who delve into such tour topics as "It's a Sailor's Life for Me," and "Real Pirates of the Inland Seas."

Tall Ship Windy
The massive schooner gently bobs in the Lake Michigan waters as the Chicago skyline towers on the shore. Onboard, hardy sailors relate tales of piracy and the rumrunners who filled the city's speakeasies as they train their passengers to tie knots and unfurl sails. Period lessons abound onboard Windy, the lone vessel helmed by US Coast Guard-certified captains and crews. The nostalgic steed is used to educate visitors on the lake's maritime traditions and explore coastal waters. Windy also plays host to themed adventures that include fireworks shows, pirates explaining city architecture, and pirates complaining about the popularity of pool noodles. Crews strive to make each tour unique, with sailors who expound on their skills as well as performers and educators versed in history, maritime lore, art, and theater.
