Would agree with other reviewers that the actual tour is too short. You spend a lot of time waiting to get onto the river from Lake Michigan. Also make sure to arrive early to get a good seat for the views. If you get stuck...More

Was in town with my family for the 2017 Chicago Marathon. This seemed like a great idea after the race, since we could tour and not have to, um, walk. Captain Kat, first mate Rock, and our docent Cale took us on a fun, well-informed...More

We took the 5:15 cruise and it was perfect. Maui, Swag, and Cat were wonderful. My kids are 7, 10, and 11 and they enjoyed it. They are still quoting Maui so I know they were listening to him. He made the trip so interesting!...More

Fun architectural tour with Maui, Swag and Capt Kate. Got to go thru the locks then see the amazing architecture of the city. This was a fun tour and would recommend it.

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as

I bought my ticket through Groupon and showed them on my phone. I got to the tix booth a few minutes before we boarded and they assisted another person who was unable to print them (like you). Very friendly. Have fun!

We used Seadog cruise at Navy Pier. Your child is tall enough. We did the architecture cruise but they offer a thrill ride. The company was great. I think you will have a blast!
