Chicago River Cruise Route
Chicago River Cruise Route

Chicago River Cruise Route

Departs from: Chicago River Esplanade, right in front of NBC Tower on the River (north side)
Address: 455 N. Cityfront Plaza Drive

All river cruises will depart from our dock near NBC tower on Chicago's revitalized River Esplanade, between Michigan Avenue and Columbus Drive. Dinner cruises follow the longest route, which extends west on the main branch to Wolf Point, north to North Avenue, south to Ping Tom Memorial Park, east to Lakeshore Drive, then back to the dock.

The lunch, brunch and cocktail cruises will feature a modified version of the dinner route. If the river is seeing high traffic, or in rare cases of severe weather, the cruise route may be modified further to include only the main and south branches.

Every experience promises unmatched views of the city's world-renowned architectural feats, from Marina City and the Merchandise Mart to the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Willis Tower and more.
