We did the 2 hour Cruise- not only did we get a great ride down the Chicago River with an excellent narrative, but we also got to go through the locks and out onto Lake Michigan. What a great way to experience Chicago. The boats leave from the Riverwalk- very convenient to Michigan Avenue and the hotels on Wacker Drive.
There is seating on both the upper deck and under cover in the boat, so weather was not a problem. They serve drinks (both non-alcoholic and alcoholic), and can even sell sunscreen.
We highly recommend Mercury- The cost was very reasonable for the length of the trip. We had individuals with all levels of walking ability, and found it easy to enter and exit the boat. There is a ramp to the Riverwalk, and accessibility was not an issue
