All river cruises will depart from our dock near NBC tower on Chicago's revitalized River Esplanade, between Michigan Avenue and Columbus Drive. 

The lunch, brunch and cocktail cruises journey on the main and south branches of the Chicago River. If the river is seeing high traffic, or in rare cases of severe weather, the cruise route may be modified further to include only the main and south branches.
