See the city as you’ve never seen it before on our classic Lake Michigan boat tour. Enjoy stunning views of Chicago’s downtown as you cruise the coastline of one of the Great Lakes.

Skyline Lake Tours depart from Shoreline's dock at the west end of Navy Pier beginning at 11:30 a.m  A note about ticketing: Customers are strongly encouraged to make reservations online and choose the “print at home” ticketing option to activate a bar code on their phone for scanning upon arrival.
