Seadog Speedboat Cruises
Set sail from the historic Navy Pier and take part in one of the most scenic tours available in the Chicago area. Enjoy the water and the sight of famous buildings and landmarks as you cut through the water on the powerful Seadog Speedboats. You will be kept well informed by experienced and entertaining tour guides every step of the way as you tour the Chicago River on a 110 passenger, completely open-air speedboat.
About the Seadog
The Seadog I and Seadog II are 110 passenger capacity speedboats that boast CAT Turbo Charged Diesel engines. The speedboats are completely open-air, and passengers are seated in rows facing the front of the boat. The speedboat tours are safe for all ages, and while the goal is too keep passengers dry, weather and water conditions may get guests wet on their tour.
