It was fun. If you ever have read any books on Chicago then you won't learn anything new. That 2os why I gave it an average score. But the ride was fun, especially on the open area. The tour goes by fast though.

About This Deal

Cities were often built around rivers because they provide the necessary resources for successful trade and waterpark industries. Take advantage of our forefathers' foresight with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

The lakefront speedboat tour ferries up to 135 passengers along the shores of Lake Michigan, passing such famed sites as Navy Pier, the Museum Campus, Grant Park, and the Magnificent Mile, while captains dispense enlightening tidbits about the skyline's history and architecture. With speeds of up to 45 mph, the Seadog Extreme takes passengers on a thrill ride, on which two 1,400-horsepower engines move through slaloms and 180- to 360-degree turns. Alternatively, the river and lake architectural tour kicks off with a speedboat ride on the lakefront before passing through the locks and meandering through downtown and its opulent skyscrapers on the Chicago River. All tours depart from and return to Navy Pier. Click here to see a map of the tours' routes.
