Q:

Can one buy a dockside boarding groupon and then use it to upgrade to the sail away cost? In other words, the $25 face value ($11, 12, ,13 cost ) would be applied toward the $70 sail cost and we would pay the difference of $45 at the ticket booth?

Catherine J.  asked on  Jun 29, 2013

A:

Sorry, in order to sail on a Tall Ship, a Sail Away ticket must be purchased online at www.navypier.com. Groupons are only good for the value and services offered and cannot be altered or substituted.

Are the tickets just good for boarding the vessel, or do we get taken out on the lake for a quick sail?

Are any of the ships wheelchair accessible?? I have ben to Navy Pier many times and would like to get on the ship

Navy Pier is wheelchair accessible. Guests in wheelchairs can bring them up along dockside of a ship to view. Most ships are not able to accommodate wheelchairs onto their docks. Additional information will be posted at www.navypier.com/tallshipschicago closer to the event dates on these options.

Emily R.  asked on  Jun 26, 2013

A:

This Groupon is only for Adult Dockside Admissions, there's not a child option, but Adult Dockside Boarding Ticket can be used on a child.

Laura K.  from  Merchant  replied on  Jun 26, 2013

Q:

It appears you must attend on the day of purchase. But if I purchased the more expensive tickets for Saturday, for example, and wanted to attend on a less expensive admission day, such as Thursday, could I do that? I want to get these as a gift and am not sure which day will work best for the recipient.
