Take the Scenic Route with a Shoreline Water Taxi

Have you ever been stuck in a cab that’s been gridlocked in rush hour traffic? At Shoreline Sightseeing, we offer a Shoreline water taxi service that is not only a traffic-free experience, but is also often cheaper than your average automotive cab fare—not to forget that you’ll be privy to an intimate view of downtown Chicago as you sail through its canals.

Scenic Routes to Iconic Destinations

Shoreline Sightseeing offers two popular routes to serve visitors and commuters alike. Depending on your destination and the sights you would like to see along the way, choose from:

  • Lake Michigan Route – This cab departs from Navy Pier and the Shedd Aquarium/Museum Campus to give commuters a stunning view of the sights along Lake Michigan, including Millennium Park, and the Alder Planetarium. Passengers debarking at the Shedd Aquarium will be within walking distance of Soldier Field and Northerly Island.
  • Chicago River Route – Travel down the iconic Chicago River and see the city as only a water taxi can give it to you. Departing from Navy Pier, the Michigan Avenue Bridge, and Union Station (Willis Tower), passengers will have an unmatched view of the Chicago skyline, including the stunning Trump Tower.
