Fireworks Seadog Cruise–A special view of #Chicago at Blogher 2013

Sharing is caring!


Next week I am headed to Chicago and I will be attending Blogher 2013.  This is my third conference and I just loved attending.  Last year I was in New York City with my family and we had a blast.  There was so much to see and so many things to do.  I even had the opportunity to hang out withe the world famous Rockettes.

One of the best things that we did when we were there was to take a boat cruise around Manhattan.  It was a great way to see the city from a completely different angle.

You can imagine how excited I was to be offered the chance to tour of Chicago on a boat cruise.  I have done this before on my many trips to Chicago but I have never done a boat cruise at night.

Every Wednesday and Saturday evening during the summer, there are fireworks at Navy Pier and I am looking forward to seeing them from the deck of a Sea Dog Cruise.  

Seadog Cruise have various options for you:

Lakefront Fireworks Cruise

Enjoy front-row seats to the spectacular fireworks display aboard our Lakefront Fireworks Cruise! Cruise along Lake Michigan with an exciting speedboat ride paired with an informative tour of the Chicago skyline, then end the evening with a dazzling fireworks show and top-40 hits playing in the background! The open aired vessel allows for panoramic views, providing a perfect view. The Seadog Fireworks Cruise is available on Wednesdays and Saturdays, running from Memorial Day – Labour Day.
