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.

I've been on this tour three times now; once as a child and twice as an adult and enjoy it each time! The guides are funny, they discuss history and new innovations with buildings, & you get to ride fast! :)
