Shoreline Water Taxis

Water Taxi Season: Late May – September, weather permitting

More sights, less traffic

Skip the car, take the water taxi

Shoreline water taxis are the fast and fun way to get to Chicago’s top attractions. Beloved by commuters and visitors alike, our water taxis aren’t tours, but they are a great way to get around town. 

Our water taxi service begins in May and runs through September, with additional service throughout the spring and fall for special events. All water taxi service is weather dependent. Please note that our water taxis are not wheelchair accessible and that some of the docks are not at street level (such as Union Station), so passengers will need to be able to climb stairs.
