The hubby and I stumbled on Chicago electric boats walking around so we stopped to check it out. It was so beautiful outside and peaceful riding Chicago river on our own. It is definitely a must do as two or even better if you have a group. I highly recommend!
These boats are great for sightseeing Chicago from the river and offer the opportunity to set your own pace and agenda in terms of where you go along the river. Staff was great, renting process very streamlined and was overall a wonderful experience with the electric vintage boats!
This was the second time we took to the river for a celebration with the Chicago Electric Boat Company! We loved it so much the first time and couldn’t wait for another excuse to go out again. We’ve only tried 10 passenger duffy boats, but if you can drive a golf cart, you can drive one of these boats.
