A young man named Swagg was the tour announcer for our thrill ride at Navy Pier. He was entertaining yet respectful of all the people on the boat. He was genuinely kind to the younger children and respectful to the older passengers. He was engaging with all the passengers. The captain was very good also. This ride was definitely worth the money.

I took my daughter and three friends to Navy Pier for her birthday. We went on the Seadog Extreme thrill ride, which is the Red boat. I have experienced the yellow boats in the past, which was a lot of fun! BUT, the extreme for four 11 year olds was the way to go! Our cute buddy Ben from Ireland was a great host, and the captains did an awesome job of giving us the "thrills"! You will get wet, probably soaked if you sit anywhere between the halfway point and back where we were. Loud music, 180 and 360 turns. Really a great time! Expensive for sure! $125 with tax for one adult and four kids for 30 minutes, but it was the highlight of their day! Well done Seadog Cruises!

Brian rocked the seadog adventure! Enjoyed his knowledge, humor and tour!! Highly recommend!
We enjoyed the beginning fast ride during a hot day, the seats were comfortable and water was handed out. A quick but thorough history on the bridges, buildings and interesting facts! The river in reverse blew our mind!

Went on the Seadogs Extreme Thrill ride w/ my soon to be 80 year old mom and my brother. The entire staff were very professional but also personable and friendly. The ride is as enjoyable and as thrilling as promised. We did get wet, as promised. Ben, our ride guide, was very funny and took pictures of anyone who wanted him to take a picture of their group as we returned to Navy Pier. Our pilots, Kaitlen, and Samoor, did a fantastic job of providing the "thrills". The music that was played during the ride added to the excitement. I felt that we really got our money's worth, that's for sure ! I would go on it again in a flash !

After researching new exciting things to do in Chicago since we visit the city often, my husband came across Seadog Cruises (Lakefront Speedboat Tour) at Navy Pier in the downtown Chicago area. What a great way to learn about the lakefront, landmarks and the history behind it. Our tour guide (Cartier) was very energetic, informative, and entertaining. This tour was perfect in every way from the information, music, staff, and of course the lakeside view of the city. If you and your family are looking for something exciting to do I strongly recommend taking the opportunity and visit Seadog Cruises at Navy Pier to learn some interesting yet fun facts about Chicago from a view on the lakefront.
