Choose Between Two 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.

Seadog Cruises

Since 1996, the staff at Seadog Cruises has welcomed explorers aboard sophisticated, open-air speedboats for city tours. Over the years, they’ve led more than two million sightseers through Baltimore and Chicago on cruises that elucidate city histories, paying special attention to landmarks such as Baltimore’s Naval Reserve Center and Chicago’s Tribune Tower. Their fleet of watercraft uses low-sulfur diesel and four-stroke engines that produce lower emissions than older models, allowing eco-conscious passengers to rest easy and allowing fish to finally open their windows for some fresh water.

Customer Reviews

Great value. We had such a good time. We did the architectural tour. It was informative, entertaining, and wonderful to be on the water. It was so much fun, we bought tickets for the Extreme Thrill ride as soon as we hit land and enjoyed it just as much!

It was an extremely hot day. I was on the architectural tour but due to the hot weather, while we were waiting for the locks to open we headed out on the lake to get everyone wet and cooled off. Also, water was passed out at the end of the tour. A very nice touch. Would go again with a coupon. It was totally a fun experience.
