Shoreline Sightseeing July 4th 90-minute Architecture Fireworks Cruises will depart from two locations: Michigan Avenue Bridge (401 N. Michigan Avenue) or Navy Pier (600 E. Grand Avenue).
Shoreline Sightseeing's 90-minute July 4th Architecture Fireworks Cruises begin with a dramatic, guided architecture tour on the Chicago River. Boats will then head towards the mouth of the river for fantastic views of the July 4th fireworks at Navy Pier.
Shoreline currently has multiple tour times available beginning at 8:15 p.m. from our docks at Polk Bros Park (SW corner of Navy Pier*), and at Michigan Avenue (NE corner of the Michigan Avenue Bridge). Boarding will begin 15 minutes prior to departure with a cash bar available.
* Please note: We highly recommend that all guests departing from our Navy Pier locations on July 4th allow extra time to reach Navy Pier and arrive as early as possible. Historically, Navy Pier parking reaches capacity and pedestrian access is limited to those who can provide either a printed email confirmation or hard copy tour tickets in order to receive a wrist band that allows entrance to Navy Pier. Please note that July 4th cruise tickets are non-refundable.
