Our captain was great. Our guide Josh was a dancing riot. That captain, Catherine (I believe that was her name), really knew how to whip that boat. We sat 3rd row, so we didn't get soaked, just a sprinkle of mist here and there. But the adrenaline from just being out on the lake on a beautiful day driving fast was still rushing.

Had an amazing time with my niece and nephew. We signed up for the extreme thrill ride, but it got cancelled for some reason. They gave us tickets on the regular ride, and 3 complimentary tickets to the extreme thrill ride when they get it up and running again.

Looks like 2017 prices are about $10 higher per ticket than 2016. Not sure if that is good deal. Had a great time in 2016 on the Seadog.

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! :)

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.
