Lake Michigan Boat Trip Itinerary

Your cruise on Lake Michigan sets sail from Chicago's Navy Pier, famous for its giant ferris wheel. Climb on board your boat ready for your 40-minute sightseeing tour of the city's iconic skyline from the lake.

Sailing over Lake Michigan, one of the biggest lakes in North America and the only one of the five Great Lakes to be located entirely within the United States, you'll feel as though you're cruising on the open sea. 

Whether you're a local or visiting Chicago for the first time, this boat trip is an unforgettable way to see the city. You'll enjoy unique views of the emblematic monuments of the Downtown district, from Millennium Park to the Willis Tower and John Hancock Center skyscrapers amongst many others.
