We are open 7 days a week! Chicago Electric Boat Company operates from April through November, weather permitting. That means you have seven months to enjoy the Chicago River through all seasons on our electric boats. Our fleet of Duffy 18 Snug Harbors are each outfitted with a full canopy top and a total window enclosure. This ensures that neither rain nor shine will keep you from enjoying your river cruise.
Boats must be in the docks by the closing time.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday 10:00am-10:00pm
Wednesday, Saturday 10:00am-11:30pm
2 hour minimum after 5pm on Weekends
Navy Pier Fireworks are at 9:30pm on Wednesday

We are located right under the House of Blues. Go to the vestibule where you pay for the House of Blues valet parking and take that elevator down to the lowest level--"marina" level. Our offices are located on the left. Below are pictures of the area where you can take the elevator down to the boats. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made up to six months in advance. Last minute and walk-up customers are always welcome but are subject to availability.
