You won’t have to worry about taxi rides, traffic, or public transportation. So, join this boat trip for an unobstructed view of the city's beautiful architecture. The guided, narrated tour begins and ends at 400 North Michigan Avenue. For an hour-and-a-half, you can enjoy sighting the tall skyscrapers and picturesque buildings. If you wish to drink, you will have to purchase your own alcoholic beverage. What’s more, the boat offers both indoor and outdoor seating to enjoy the booze. You can also choose a convenient time as the tour operates throughout the day.

    Reach quickly! The boat will depart from Wendella Dock at the foot of the Wrigley Building. Have a close look at the movable Dusable Bridge as you climb on board. You will go past the Skydeck Observatory at the top of the Willis Tower. This 110-storey, 1450-foot skyscraper is the tallest building in the area. Next, the boat moves towards the Centennial Fountain and Water Arc. Gaze as the tiered waterfall shoots across the river. Next, take a few snaps as you go past the gigantic Merchandise Mart with its Art Deco architecture. You will also have the pleasure to enjoy a scenic view of the Michigan Bridge, the Wrigley Building, Riverwalk Waterfront and the big Lyric Opera House.

    Remember! Confirm your place on the boat at the time of booking itself. The boat can accommodate a maximum of 290 travellers at a time. There is no wheelchair access, and you cannot bring alcohol on board. The US Coast Guard also prohibits you from carrying any weaponry. And for security reasons, all travellers’ bags will be thoroughly searched. The tour guide will engage you with the history of the various structures, sites and the city itself. You have to cancel a day ahead to receive a full refund. The tour operator reserves the right to reschedule or refund in case of poor weather conditions. So, book now and be a part of an experience worth remembering.
