    What to Expect
    Take a thrilling speed boat tour of Chicago along the city's beautiful Lake Michigan, enjoying fantastic views of the city skyline and its many tourist landmarks along the way. This fast-paced speedboat ride is sure to get your heart racing, with a little history, humor and information thrown in food good measure.
    Start your 30-minute ride at Navy Pier, heading out onto scenic Lake Michigan as you listen to a few anecdotes about the Pier and the impressive Lake Michigan. Then pump up the music and listen to the engines roar as your 2,000-horsepower vessel zips along the lake for an adrenaline-pumping tour of the city. Zoom down to Chicago's Museum Campus, where you'll stop for a few minutes to get a quick history lesson and learn about Windy City's many landmarks.
    Then crank up the throttle again as you streak back past Navy PIer towards the Magnificent Mile, catching great views of Grant Park, Buckingham Fountain and the Willis Tower as you cruise. Return to the dock at Navy Pier after 30 minutes to finish your action-packed speedboat trip.

    The experience was fun, fast and exciting with a bit of history mixed in to top things off. We really enjoyed ourselves and you will get water sprayed! It was a Dad & son weekend trip and one of the highlights of our weekend.
