    Dog Cruise

    What a wonderful idea for dogs! We had a great day everybody was friendly and organized. They even had doggy treats on board for us as well as a special bathroom with newspapers in case your pup needed to go potty. Great way to do the architectural tour.

    Great morning adventure

    What a great cruise to start the day. Yes only Sundays at 10:15 but still a bunch of fun. The staff love all the dogs and also interested in their owners. Gave some great knowledge of the area. And also a map with various dog friendly places marked out. Highly recommend

    Good cruise, but not like the description

    The cruise was nice. As the previous reviewer stated, it is the same cruise, but one is able to take the cruise with dogs. The description on this site and other sites would lead you to believe that the cruise is very dog-centered and it is not. We had one dog park pointed out to us, and they described the general area of where another dog park is located. No mention of dog-friendly restaurants, hotels or fire hydrants. They do have water and newspaper on board should your dog need either. The staff was very nice and good with dogs and the tour was otherwise informative about Chicago history in general. They really dwelled on the Great Chicago Fire.

    GREAT FUN FOR ALL!

    We took 3 dogs on this cruise. It's the same cruise you get without the dogs, but with your canine companions included. They provided water bowls and papers in one of the bathrooms for the dogs. Thoroughly enjoyable!
