Discover the Windy City from the Water

Set Sail on a Premier Charter Cruise

Architecture boat tours are one of the best ways to delve into Chicago’s history. You’ll see the different art styles on the buildings that line the Chicago River’s shores while expert guides explain how the city was rebuilt after the 1871 Great Chicago Fire. We offer 90-minute architecture tours that cover all three branches of the Chicago River, or you can book a private boat tour for your event that covers Chicago River and Lake Michigan. Check out our cruises below to learn more.
