Located on the Chicago Riverwalk

Traffic alert: Major construction on the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290), recommend exploring alternate route.

Anchoring The Magnificent Mile and just three blocks from Millennium Park, our Chicago River cruises depart right below Michigan Avenue on Chicago’s beautiful riverwalk, a recently expanded park that makes the shores of our fabulous river into a gorgeous, strollable public space.

Look for the Blue Awning

Find our kiosk and blue awning on street level on the southeast corner of the Michigan Avenue Bridge at Wacker Drive, then descend the stairs located there. Our ticket booths are the white buildings with blue awnings at the base of the stairs. Use 112 E. Wacker Drive for GPS purposes.
