Description

Leave the hustle and bustle behind, and enjoy a leisurely Skyline Sail aboard Chicago’s Official Tall Ship.

Our crew today will be EXPLORING Chicago's architectural majesty while Windy sails across our beautiful lakefront skyline. To learn about the people, plans, and persistence that shaped Chicago's most famous sights, join us on the main deck. From our historical maritime roots to modern science and technology, you will be delighted with interesting facts, unique stories, and a healthy dose of whimsy.  You will be rewarded with incredible scenery and photo opportunities of the Windy City, and enjoy your time on the water — the third-largest of the Great Lakes, Lake Michigan is itself a natural wonder. Your guide also will provide live audio commentary throughout the journey.

This is approximately a 75 Minute sail.


On this Lake Michigan trip, venture to Chicago’s Navy Pier and set off on a beautiful sailboat. For the next 75 minutes, you’ll have the chance to take in Chicago’s sights, including its famous skyscrapers, from the water.

As you go, your guide will provide a live audio commentary, will point out key buildings and other landmarks, and will give historical context to your sightseeing. Learn about the people and plans that shaped Chicago throughout its history, from its early, maritime roots to its modern status as a world-class metropolis.

There will be plenty of photo opportunities throughout the trip. You can also assist the captain and crew with sailing duties ranging from hoisting the sails to steering the boat — or can simply relax on deck while taking in the incomparable views.

After 75 minutes on the water, the boat will return you to Navy Pier, where the tour concludes.
