Chicago River Cruise

Chicago Cycleboats – Public Tour

Tour Description

Grab a seat on one of our group rides! Public Cycleboat tours hold 10 pedalers and 6 riders for a total of 16 passengers. All rides are BYOB, 90 minutes long and depart from the Chicago Riverwalk (between the Wells Street and LaSalle Street bridges). Get ready to experience the city like never before!

A bike ride, a boat ride or just along for the ride, Chicago Cycleboats has got your ticket to ride! Riders sit on comfortable bike seats at a table as they cycle at their own pace and passengers can sit or stand while they enjoy the view, the cruise, and the company. Riders and cyclers can switch places at any time!

On rare occasions, large groups may need to sit on separate boats based on other bookings. To guarantee all members of large groups sit on the same cycle boat, we recommend booking a private tour.

Important Information
All rides depart from 155 W. Riverwalk S

Please remember that your reservation time is a departure time. You will need to arrive at least 15 minutes early in order to leave the dock on time. Be sure that each individual in the party has signed the digital waiver and confirmed their e-mail address prior to your arrival. We will ask you to see your digital waiver confirmation e-mail before you’ll be allowed to board the boat.
