New this season, our Urban Adventures!

Urban Adventures take you deeper along the Chicago River, exploring either the North or South Branch of the Chicago River (check schedule for which route!). Leaving from our dock, you’ll take in the majesty and history of downtown Chicago, before branching off into the urban wilderness that makes the Chicago River one of the most unique bodies of water in North America. Dive deep into the industrial past of one America’s great cities, while also learning more about the conservation efforts and cultural renaissances that have helped shape the Windy City. Every Urban Adventure includes lunch at our restaurant Taco Rio after you return to the UK dock. Lunch includes 2 Tacos along with your choice of small side (Chips & Salsa, Elotes, or Rio Slaw).

Urban Adventures Routes alternate between exploring the North Branch around Goose Island (lovingly called “Cooking the Goose”), and exploring the South Branch route to Chinatown.
