Fireworks Cruise

Quick Details

2.5 Hour Rental 16 Foot Boat | Up to 8 Passengers

Watch the fireworks on the Chicago River from your own pontoon boat

Chicago’s majestic architecture really comes alive at night. As the sun goes down, the city lights up, and the skyscrapers brighten the horizon for miles. Wednesday and Saturday evenings are especially romantic thanks to the Navy Pier fireworks, which occur throughout the summer from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

What better way to see these spectacular light shows than from the Chicago River, on a fun and relaxing private pontoon boat? With BBQ Pontoon, you can cruise the Chicago River while experiencing an unobstructed view of the Navy Pier fireworks.

Our boat rentals come with one free pizza to cook in the gas-fired grill that is included on each pontoon boat. Fireworks cruises come with an extra half hour on the water. Dinner with a show has never been this unique!
