Opening this summer, the new Odyssey Chicago River experience is Chicago’s first dining cruise of its kind, offering guests unobstructed views of the Windy City’s iconic riverfront aboard a custom-built, glass-enclosed vessel. Year-round lunch, brunch, cocktail and dinner cruises — with upscale menus and refined atmosphere— differentiate this experience from your typical riverboat excursion. Set to begin cruising in late summer 2018, booking is open now for visitors eager to find a unique perspective in the heart of Chicago. Ticket prices vary.
Chicago River Cruise Route: Departs from: Chicago River Esplanade, right in front of NBC Tower on the River (north side). Address: 455 N. Cityfront Plaza Drive
All river cruises will depart from our dock near NBC tower on Chicago’s revitalized River Esplanade, between Michigan Avenue and Columbus Drive. Dinner cruises follow the longest route, which extends west on the main branch to Wolf Point, north to North Avenue, south to Ping Tom Memorial Park, east to Lakeshore Drive, then back to the dock.
The lunch, brunch and cocktail cruises will feature a modified version of the dinner route. If the river is seeing high traffic, or in rare cases of severe weather, the cruise route may be modified further to include only the main and south branches.
Every experience promises unmatched views of the city’s world-renowned architectural feats, from Marina City and the Merchandise Mart to the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Willis Tower and more.
