Chicago Water Taxis
Shoreline Water Taxis offer you a scenic, fast and fun way to see some of Chicago’s top attractions.
Our docks are convenient to major attractions, as well as to Union Station. Our Shoreline Water Taxi service begins in May and runs through September with additional service throughout the fall and for special events. (All taxi service is weather dependent.) Please note that our water taxis are not wheelchair accessible and that some of the docks are not street level (such as Michigan Avenue and Union Station), requiring passengers to climb stairs.
