This cruise was a lot of fun. Our guide was very knowledgeable and genuinely interested in the information she was delivering. Learned a lot about the history of architecture in the city. Would definitely recommend for all ages.

My husband and I took our two kids on the seadogs firework cruise for our last night in Chicago. The views were absolutely breathtaking, the fireworks were amazing and the memory will stay with our kids for a long time! We all absolutely had a blast. We got some great photos of the skyline!

My experience was wonderful! The cruise sets sail at dusk and the lights of Chicago are gorgeous. The sommelier was very passionate about wine and was very informative of his selections. (Great choices btw). The comedian/tour guide told great stories of the buildings as we toured through the city learning of its history and amazing architecture. Highly recommend this tour but bring a jacket as it gets a little chilly on the water.

This was a fantastic boat tour. Capt. Matt, Shade, & Maui did a wonderful job. The energy that Maui had made the boat tour so enjoyable, would definitely do it again.

Me and my daughter decided to ride the Seadog extreme thrill ride for the 4th of July, and we were not disappointed. We had so much fun, I highly recommend it and it's definitely worth it.
