Took family visiting from out of town ages 7-37. They all enjoyed it. The guide pointed out main buildings on north and south ends of downtown with a couple of stories. The rides between points of interest are straight, but fast. We were in the front and stayed dry.
*Extreme Thrill Ride (30 min.):
*For a truly wet and wild experience, the Seadog Extreme is 30% faster than her doggie siblings! Topping out at 45mph on the open water, the Seadog Extreme is the most horse-powered commercial passenger vessel of its kind currently cruising the Great Lakes.
With exhilarating high speeds and full 180-360° spins, this jet-propelled ride blasts off to start and splashes down to stop! Experience full throttle slalom runs, sharp twists and turns, and feel the raw power and excitement of the Seadog Extreme’s two 1400 HP engines. Also enjoy rock-n-roll music and a fun narration about Chicago.
Lakefront Speedboat Tour (30 min.):
As you depart Chicago’s Navy Pier, your Captain will tell you interesting facts about the Pier and Chicago’s lakefront.
Your Captain will then crank up the music and race south past Navy Pier to Chicago’s Museum Campus where you will pause to hear about Chicago’s interesting lakefront landmarks, architecture and history.
Seadog will then race north past Navy Pier to cruise the Magnificent Mile giving you 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 our turbo-charged engines. *
