Sunset Cruise 

There are few things more peaceful in life than watching the sunset with someone you love. Grab your significant other and your children and watch the sun melt away behind Chicago’s stunning skyline. You’ll love the way the colors fade across the buildings, sky, and calm blue waters. And away from all of the crowded areas in this beautiful city, you’ll have an unencumbered view to take perfect family photos, landscape pictures, or simply enjoy floating alongside an unbeatable view. You’ll have the perfect backdrop during your high-quality, chef-inspired dinner, game night, or storytime.

River or Lake Tour

If you’ve done a sunset cruise already or you’re looking for something more educational, book a Chicago River or Lake Michigan tour instead. These fun and informative trips are scenic, full of history, and enhanced by our friendly docents that (thanks to our incredible sound system) can be heard anywhere throughout the four levels of entertaining space on the yacht. Whether you want to soak up the sun on the deck, get cozy in the lounge area, or stand up in the open air for a better view, you’ll see the best of this beautiful city and learn interesting historical facts, too.

Picture Scavenger Hunt 

During the day, your Chicago family cruise will give you clear views of the most impressive, famous, and interesting sights in the entire city. Why not turn that into a fun game everyone can play? Once you’ve created your cruise route (or let us choose one for you), use the landmarks and famous features to create an exciting scavenger hunt! The first person to take a picture of everything on the list wins a prize (and bragging rights!) Depending on your route, some of the best ones might be the Ferris wheel at Navy Pier, Buckingham Fountain, and the famous metallic Bean (formally known as Cloud Gate) in Millennium Park. As a bonus, you’ll be sure to collect some incredible photos from the trip to look back on later. Sun and fun; it’s the best of both worlds.
