Relaxing cruise around the harbor and skyline of the city.
But our captain did not narrate the cruise so we had no idea what buildings we saw.
You can buy alcoholic drinks on board if you would like.
Relaxing 90 minutes but hopefully you will get a captain who will share some local history and highlight the cruise.

This 1-1/2 hour tour of the Milwaukee River, Inner Harbor, and Lake Michigan was a real pleasure. The guide was very knowledgeable about Milwaukee history, not just reading from a script. Facilities on board the boat were excellent. It started raining about half-way through the trip but we just retreated to the covered part of the boat and the tour continued. Highly recommended, especially for families. This is the only tour we could find in Milwaukee that didn't have an alcohol-based theme. Cost is very reasonable ($15 for adults).

Took the family on this tour and we all loved it. The tour guide from the local historic society gave a great history as we travel threw the city by river then out into Lake Michigan.

We loved the Milwaukee Boat Tour! For $15 we got to see the city and went out into Lake Michigan. We learned a lot about the area and had a fun boat ride. Well worth it. We saw the competitor's boats go by but they we small, covered boats full of drunk people on a "booze cruise". If you are a family, or just really want to learn the history of the area, this tour is the one to do. We considered going again the next day just to enjoy the ride!

We thoroughly enjoyed the 90 minute boat ride because we had never taken the time to truly appreciate the architecture of the lakefront and Milwaukee River. It was informative, relaxing and enjoyable. I have lived in the area my entire life and am glad I did this to appreciate the Lakefront and especially to see the Art Museum's wings close first hand.
