Water Taxi

Shoreline Water Taxis offer a scenic, fast and fun way to get to your destination.

Shoreline Water Taxi service begins in May and runs through September with additional service throughout the fall and for special events. All taxi service is weather dependent. There are two water taxi routes: Lake and River. The Lake Route connects Navy Pier with the Museum Campus and is within walking distance of Soldier Field and Northerly Island. The River Route runs between Navy Pier and Willis Tower/Union Station. Visit or call 1-312-222-9328 for more information.

Shoreline Sightseeing offers two water taxi routes, and if you’re looking to make the trip between Navy Pier and Union Station, you’ll want the River Route, with both a direct route to our Navy Pier Polk Bros Park dock as well as one that stops at Michigan Avenue so you can take care of any shopping first.
