Feel the need for speed? This exhilarating speedboat ride takes you out onto Lake Michigan for the ride of a lifetime. Experience the roar of the 2000-horsepower engines as you race along Chicago's famous Lake Michigan. The best way to view Chicago is always from the lake!

Your exciting speedboat ride along the shoreline is combined with informative and amusing descriptions of the world-famous Chicago skyline.

As you depart Chicago's Navy Pier, your Captain will tell you interesting facts about the Pier and Chicago's Lake Michigan. Then, with the music cranked up, you'll race south past Navy Pier to Chicago's Museum Campus. The tour pauses here so you can hear about Chicago's interesting lakefront landmarks, architecture and history.

Then you'll race north past Navy Pier to cruise the Magnificent Mile, providing unique views of the Sears Tower, Buckingham Fountain and Grant Park along the way!

Finally, you will race back to Navy Pier to the thrilling sound of turbo-charged engines!

Great trip. I believe Bill was our guide 12:00 pm trip 8/4 even though I have been on many Lake Michigan tours he brought out some interesting things I didn't know. Super value and appropriate for almost all ages.
