Chicago Cycleboats Launches on Chicago River


BYOB and get ready to pedal! Chicago Cycleboats is the city’s first-ever pedal-powered boat, which offers passengers an active way to explore the branches of the Chicago River.

“We are thrilled to introduce Chicago Cycleboats to the Chicago River,” says Ron Silvia, Chicago Cycleboat president. “It offers such a unique opportunity for group outings, celebrations, a creative date night, or company team building. It’s a great addition to the exciting river landscape.” 

The boat seats 14 passengers with the option to reserve by the seat or to rent out the entire boat. All tours last 90 minutes and include a captain. The Cycleboat is family friendly and operates seven days a week (in season) out of the Chicago Riverwalk.
