Welcome to THE CAPTAIN’S BLOG. This is the place to go for The Captain’s tips on where to drop anchor and find the best things to do and places to go in Chicago!
Fall in Chicago is the best: roaring fans, the smells of tailgate and flowing beer. We wait all year for that first Chicago Bears game to commence and now it finally has!
By now many of you have probably already taken a ride aboard one of our water taxis to a Bears game. After all, no one likes sitting in parking for an hour before the game and even longer after! That being said, we want to make sure you make the most out of your Bears game day experience with us so we came up with an awesome tailgating suggestion. Check this out:
Before the game, hit up Harry Caray’s at Navy Pier for their Harry’s Park, Tailgate and Cruise party! Customers of Harry Caray’s Navy Pier receive a discounted parking rate of $13 in the Navy Pier parking garage during all home game days with validation. Eat and drink with other fans and enjoy catching pre-game footage on the many HDTV’s in Harry Caray’s.
After getting your pre-game party on at Harry’s, you can board one of our water taxis located directly in front of the restaurant. A roundtrip water taxi ride is discounted for guests of Harry Caray’s ($11/adult, $7/child 12 and under, kids 2 and under ride free) and will include the choice of a beverage to bring on the ride (Budweiser, Bud Light, Pepsi product or bottled water). Following the game, hop on our water taxi and head back to Harry’s for a post-game tailgate where you can keep the party going!
Shoreline Water Taxis will leave Navy Pier for the Bears games throughout the day at the top of the hour and at 20 and 40 minutes past the hour (weather permitting). Shoreline Water Taxis will return to Navy Pier 20 minutes and 40 minutes after the Bears games.
We hope you take advantage of getting to Soldier Field in style and tailgating with our friends at Harry Caray’s! We wish we could run our water taxis service all year long but you know how Chicago weather can be! Hope to see you aboard soon. Go Bears!
