  • Overview & Itinerary


    For the best possible view of the Navy Pier summer fireworks in Chicago take this magical Seadog evening cruise.

    See the sky explode in a kaleidoscope of light from your grandstand seat in a speedboat on Lake Michigan.

    As well as watching the fireworks, you can enjoy a thrilling narrated waterfront cruise and let the wind blow through your hair when the Captain opens the throttle on this superfast boat.


    For a magical evening on the water take the Seadog Chicago Fireworks Cruise. There is no hotel pick-up for this cruise, which starts from Navy Pier, where there is ample parking. Details of how to reach Navy Pier are given in Additional Information.

    To receive your boarding pass please present your voucher and photo ID at the activity operator’s ticket kiosk at Navy Pier. Boarding begins 30 minutes before departure time.

    During the Summer Months, Navy Pier puts on spectacular fireworks displays on Wednesdays and Saturdays from Memorial Day through Labor Day Weekend.

    This great cruise not only gives you an extended speedboat cruise, with a narrated tour, but your position in the boat means you get one of the very best views of the Navy Pier fireworks.

    Every seat on the Seadog Chicago Fireworks Cruise has spectacular open panoramic views of the world famous Chicago skyline.

    Food and drink can be brought on board, but remember – it is hard to eat while the boat is going fast! Be prepared to be splashed – Seadog is an open-air speedboat. If conditions are windy and the lake has a chop, there is a good chance you might get wet. It’s all part of the fun!

    Your fun 60-minute trip ends back at the starting point at Navy Pier.
