The Lakefront Speedboat Tour Experience
As you depart Navy Pier, we’ll tell you interesting facts about the Pier and Chicago’s lakefront. Then we’ll crank up the music and race south to Museum Campus where we’ll pause to hear about Chicago’s interesting lakefront landmarks, architecture and history. We’ll then speed north past Navy Pier to cruise the Magnificent Mile, giving you unique views of the Sears Tower, Buckingham Fountain and Grant Park along the way. After a few quick facts, we’ll dash back to our dog house on Navy Pier.
Unlike the our Extreme Thrill Rides, you most likely won’t get wet (though we can’t make any guarantees in an open speedboat). Lakefront Tours are BYOB so bring along a cocktail and enjoy a cool cruise along Chicago’s iconic waterfront.
