For those of you who have been following Dexter’s dog-friendly vacations, you probably already know that Dexter loves his boat rides! Whenever we visit a dog-friendly city with a body of water, we always look for a boat tour, and Chicago was no different. Not only did we feel the need to find a boat tour, we also chose Shoreline Sightseeing once again! You see, we took our first ever boat tour with Shoreline Sightseeing when we visited Chicago in 2013 and had such a great time, we felt the need to do this tour justice and write a full article about our experience. 🙂
We decided to take the Architecture River Tour so we could really get a feel for the Chicago skyscrapers. We picked up our tickets early so I had plenty of time to take photos of Dexter and could be first in line. I wanted to get that front row seat to allow plenty of foot space for Dexter and his pal Levi to rest during the ride. All the folks on staff at Shoreline Sightseeing were very friendly and helpful. Not only were they dog-friendly, but the staff doted on the dogs, which the pups always appreciate.
Shoreline Sightseeing Architecture Tour did not disappoint! This 75-minute dog-friendly Chicago boat tour was full of surprises. I was looking forward to a relaxing evening viewing the amazing skyscrapers, but had no idea that our tour guide Ben would do such an amazing job narrating and explaining about each building, including history and architecture design styles. And he was a hoot and so entertaining! I think one of my favorite things about Ben’s insider’s glimpse into the buildings is that I could tell he enjoyed what he was doing and truly knew what he was talking about. It was a real experience.
How did the dogs enjoy their Chicago boat cruise? After all the air sniffing, they were lulled to sleep. These boys are so relaxed during their rides, they go right to bed. Something about the gentle rocking of the boat, the lake breeze, and the scent of the open water just mesmerizes these boys into a deep relaxation. It’s a great way to end our dog-friendly Chicago trip.
Whether you are looking for dog-friendly things to do in Chicago or want to leave Fido at home, Shoreline Sightseeing has the perfect cruise for you! Plan a group trip, architecture tour, or even a fireworks tour with Shoreline—they have something for everyone. Tell them Dexter sent you.
