Our 2023 cruising season begins in March!
Chicago's First Lady Cruises is the official cruiseline for the Chicago Architecture Center (CAC) and offers 90-minute Architecture River Cruises.
The Official Chicago Architecture Center River Cruise aboard Chicago's First Lady Cruises was voted North America's #1 Best Boat Tour in USA Today's 2021 Readers' Choice Poll. This must-do tour is led by CAC-certified volunteer guides - called docents - and highlights 53 historic and architecturally significant sites that line the Chicago River.
Specialty architecture river cruises include the beautiful Evening Cruises and a summer weekend 9am Photography Cruise. Conveniently located within walking distance to Magnificent Mile hotels, Chicago's First Lady Cruises offers a fleet of luxurious vessels with upper-deck seating for all and a climate-controlled salon deck for inclement days. The yachts are also available for private charter rentals every evening and for daytime charters on select weekdays.
