Get up-close and personal with all of Chicago's most famous buildings and beautifully unique architecture on the Chicago Architectural Sightseeing Cruise aboard the Seadog!

This 1.5-hour river and lake tour of Chicago's architectural monuments is the only tour to take you from the lakefront, through the historic Chicago Locks, and along the Chicago River all the way to the famous Willis Tower. Departing from Navy Pier, which was built originally for commercial shipping and Great Lakes excursion boats, this architecture cruise combines amazing views, entertaining narration, and an exciting ride along the lakefront, all aboard the Seadog, a Monohull boat with a CAT turbo-charged diesel engine.

Take in views of the famous bridges along the river as you listen to the amusing stories, facts, and goodies about Chicago's interesting history from your knowledgeable guide. Learn about some of the city's most famous buildings, including the Tribute Building, Willis Tower, Lyric Opera, and the Merchandise Mart, and speed along the lakefront for excellent photo ops, featuring views of Buckingham Fountain, Grant Park, Chicago Harbor, Chicago's Museum Campus, and more.

As the speedboat is open to the seasons, make sure to dress appropriately for the weather, and make sure that you don't mind getting your clothes a little damp from the spray. This family-friendly cruise allows unparalleled views of Chicago's water-front sights, so be sure to bring your camera to capture these fantastic sights!
