I took my 10 and 13 year olds for their birthday and we all had such a great time! Our tour guide was phenomenal. She was professional yet fun and hilarious. Even took pictures of us from different angles with the skyline behind us until we got the perfect picture. The boat ride itself was so much fun. It was the right amount of thrill without being too scary. The song selection was a perfect match for the experience. Not only did they go great with the fireworks but the music while speeding through the water with the beautiful view of our city skyline just added to the experience. It’s definitely a birthday we will not forget.

Easy and fun! When we arrived to pick up our tickets, they were already printed out with my name written on them - couldn't have been easier! The weather was perfect for a speedboat ride and fireworks show - calm water, a light breeze, clear skies, and a fun and engaging guide made this a really great activity. I would definitely do it again!

Very fun ride in a fast boat, impressive how quick it goes for the amount of weight it carries. It was really cool being out at night on the water, and being light by the bright skyline. Fireworks were surprisingly well done, impressed that Navy Pier does that twice a week! The driver and guide also had fun music playing during the ride, added to the experience.
