Chicago Electric Boat Company

Chicago Electric Boat Company's canopied, comfortable vessels navigate the scenic waters of the Chicago River, stirring up the reflected lights of the Loop's skyline in their wake. Groups lounge in plush seating as their elected driver easily steers the boat, bobbing along at cruising speeds of 4–5 miles per hour.

The company keeps a roster of certified captains and tour guides on hand.
