    The hustle and bustle of the city can’t touch the calm waters of Lake Michigan. There, on gently rolling waves surrounded by fresh breezes, Kayak Chicago hosts tours and lessons, and lets paddlers take to the waters on their own with rentals. Captained by Dave Olson, a kayaker for more than 20 years and outdoor educator for more than 10, the company entrusts certified instructors and guides with shaping the strokes of kayaking newbies. Their tours take aquatic explorers down the Chicago River at night to ooh and ahh over summer fireworks or during the day to survey the city’s renowned architecture and map out their next bank heist. The staff also plants patrons on standup paddleboards for introductory lessons or wave-top rounds of SUPYoga or SUPPilates.

  • Tall Ship Red Witch
    What looks like a crimson-hulled pirate ship glides into view from behind Shedd Aquarium. The wind picks up, surging into the schooner's 77-foot gaff-rigged sails and speeding the vessel along Lake Shore Drive at 8 knots. Those on shore can just make out the boat's name, Red Witch, and what appear to be passengers raising a drink to the Chicago skyline. Designed by renowned naval architect John G. Alden and named after the book Wake of the Red Witch—the same story that inspired the film starring John Wayne and Gail Russell—the Coast Guard–licensed ship accommodates up to 49 passengers within its mahogany-over-oak frame. Having sailed waters off Maui and San Diego, the boat now docks at Burnham Harbor and is under the stewardship of Captain Andrew Sadock and his crew who will be glad to autograph cannonballs for each passenger.

  • Chicago Line Cruises
    Sometimes all it takes is a suggestion. Terry Johnson and Paul McCarthy founded their vessel-chartering business in 1980. But when a good friend recommended they offer expertly narrated tours on the history and the iconic architecture of Chicago, the pair jumped at the opportunity. Praised as the “Best architecture tour available” by the Chicago Sun-Times and “Most engaging tour of the bunch” by Time Out Chicago, their river cruises take passengers on three types of educational, 90-minute tours of the city. Chicago Line Cruises has transported more than three million Chicagoans and visitors along the river for entertainment, stunning views, and a deeper appreciation for architectural design. Architectural Cruises Learn how Chicago became the birthplace of the first buildings to be dubbed "skyscrapers." Hear how the Great Chicago Fire paved the way for an architectural renaissance. See a broad selection of modern architectural styles and discover the distinctive characteristics of each. Experience Chicago's first architectural river cruise. Enjoy a cocktail during one of the evening cruises. Historical Cruises Hear the overarching story of how Chicago transformed from a swampy marshland to a world-class city. Learn about the Chicagoans whose innovations helped influence architecture and commerce around the world. Savor a cup of Starbucks coffee while a guide recounts Chicago's triumphant and tragic moments. Historical tours are presented in partnership with the Chicago History Museum. Chartered Cruises Private outings are available for 20–173 passengers. Full-service bars and professional sound systems are available for special events. Celebrate while savoring views of the Chicago skyline from a different perspective. Choose from three vessels: the Ft. Dearborn, the Innisfree, and the Marquette.

  • Chicago Yacht Club
    Chicago Yacht Club Timeline One of the world's oldest yachting clubs, the Chicago Yacht Club has a long and storied history, but it's not a long-forgotten relic. Today, 1,400 members participate in the CYC's activities, which range from historical races to social programs. Read on to learn more about the club: 1875: The Chicago Yacht Club is founded. Fifty charter members pay a $5 initiation fee, which, adjusted for inflation, is probably a zillion dollars in today's money. 1898: The first Chicago-Mackinac Race is held. At 289.4 nautical miles, it’s the world's longest freshwater sailing race. 1902: A clubhouse is built at the foot of Monroe Street; the club still operates a clubhouse at Monroe Harbor, as well as one at Belmont Harbor. 1930: The Great Depression puts the kibosh on plans for a $3 million, eight-story clubhouse in Chicago Harbor. 1935: Instead, The House of Tomorrow, a display at the 1933 World's Fair, is moved to Chicago Harbor to act as a temporary clubhouse. 1958: It's not all about boats, you know—this was the year the CYC beat the Detroit Boat Club in a bowling tournament. 1975: The club marks its 100th anniversary; celebrants include Mayor Richard J. Daley and President Gerald Ford. 1992: The Chicago Yacht Club Foundation is established to promote nautical education. 2008: On the 100th anniversary of the Chicago-Mackinac Race, a record number of boats (208) enter the race, and for the first time, all are tracked by GPS instead of well-trained seagulls.
