I had already had a bus tour of Chicago, but everyone says to take the architectural tour, so we did. It was so much fun speeding out of Navy Pier for a short ride before getting into the river. Our guide, Jake, was young (by my standards), but extremely knowledgeable about all things Chicago. It was a very interesting tour... More

First, I have to express a huge thanks to Jake from State Farm and the rest of the crew of our speedboat. These guys were amazing: from making sure to offer everyone to take pictures - no awkward selfies, to patiently waiting while I found my phone, to offering bottled water and just being perfectly welcoming. The speed ride along... More

We were booked on the “extreme thrill” speedboat ride, but when we went to collect our tickets we were told it was too dangerous due to the conditions on the lake. We were offered an upgrade to the 1.5 hour architectural cruise, but instead we opted for the lakefront speedboat ride. The speedboat ride was very fast - I can't... More

My husband and I had a terrific time riding the Extreme Thrill Ride Chicago at Seadog today. We have taken many rides with Seadog and this one was by far the most fun. We had our Deck hand Swagg which was funny and informative. We also had Captain Chang which was a fun yet safe boat handler. If you are... More

I had the pleasure of my 15-year-old cousin's company this past weekend. We took the Extreme Thrill Ride. I originally thought what boat your could honestly be "extreme." Believe me when I tell you... It's extreme. The crew does a great job communicating that this is, in fact, an extreme ride. You will likely get wet in this tour. The... More

Very very informative and interesting.....and FUN!!! This was the highlight of my trip....Rain or shine!!! Bring a poncho if... More

My family and I did the speed boat adventure and it was fun for everyone. I got a Groupon for it which made it much more reasonably priced. The tour guide was funny and made the trip even more memorable. I have been on the architecture cruises and others but this was by far the most fun of them all.... More

We went on the architectural tour and had a really great time. Our tour guide "Jake from State Farm" was hilarious and very knowledgeable. We're from Chicago but still had a really good time and learned a lot in a fun and interesting way. The speed ride at the end was awesome. I highly recommend it!

It is the best cruise I saw on the Chicago river. They not only offer you a complete introduction to all the buildings but also they give you a speed ride on the lake! I love the experience on Seadog! Highly recommended!

My granddaughter, who is 12 & I went on the Seadog Extreme boat ride at Navy Pier. It is very fun and exciting but expensive. We sat in the rear of the boat and got soaked! She absolutely loved it! The boat makes twists and turns and sudden stops but everyone, young & old were having a great time! The... More
