Throughout the summer, Navy Pier celebrates Chicago with fireworks and the best way to experience them is on a Shoreline combination Architecture/Fireworks Cruise. This dramatic, nighttime cruise takes you down all three branches of the historic Chicago River for a glittering view of our city’s iconic skyscrapers. The evening ends with an up-close view of Navy Pier’s spectacular fireworks from the mouth of the Chicago River.

Shoreline’s 75-minute combination Architecture/Fireworks Cruises leave from Ogden Slip at Navy Pier at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesdays and at 9:15 p.m. on Saturdays.
