Owner description: We are Chicago's river transportation service. An iconic fleet of black and yellow boats, we serve all three branches of the Chicago River from March to November. Our stops include Michigan Avenue, Chinatown, North Avenue, Clark and LaSalle, The Chicago Riverwalk, and Union and Ogilvie Train Station. There is no better way to get around Chicago than by boat!

With a day pass at $ 10.00 we found the Water Taxi to be much better deal than going on one of the much more expensive river cruises. Wonderful views along the Chicago river! The boats are unsually uncrowded, you can hop on and hop off. We did not miss the tour guide at all. Highly recommended!

I caught the taxi at the Field museum back to Navy Pier. A really worthwhile 10 dollar trip. Journey takes about 15 minutes but great views of the skyline and Buckingham fountain. Very enjoyable.

Wanted to go from navy pier back to downtown and didn't want to take an uber so we did a water taxi.

For $10 you get a smooth ride along the river with breath-taking views of the city and buildings, we had been going hard with the activities and wanted to do something relaxing and peaceful and this was it! I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it at least one trip with a water taxi.

Took a quick ride from wacker drive to Navy Pier. Water was beautiful and the price is economical. Wish the drop off was a little closer to the entrance of the pier.
