Chicago Line Cruises

"Without question the best architectural tour available in Chicago; witty, informative, engaging."

Offering architectural boat tours on the Chicago River and Private charters.

Private Charters

The Marquette takes a group out on the Chicago River.

For groups from 20 to 170, we have fully-outfitted boats and on-board amenities to help you create an event that will be talked about for years to come. Cocktail parties, special-theme menus, buffets, or dinners served tableside. Our cruises offer a full-service bar, a professional sound system, and an enthralling view of Chicago's skyline. Whether your special occasion calls for cocktails or champagne, pizza or pâté, a live blues band or some well-chosen CDs, we can make it happen!

Chicago Line offers an ideal dock location in the city. We are easy to find, there is plenty of parking, and - prior to boarding - your party can enjoy gathering along our beautiful dockside promenade. Please email us at or call us during business hours at 312-527-2002 for more information.
