Chicago Electric Boats

The company that started it all, Chicago Electric Boat Company, offers a unique, memorable, and environmentally friendly way to see the great city of Chicago. By renting boats that are comfortable and easy to drive, the Chicago Electric Boat Company gives even new boaters a chance to get behind the wheel and see the city. Operating since 2012, Chicago Electric Boat Company has four prominent locations that have become a mainstay of the city’s revitalized Riverwalk.

Chicago Cycleboats

Launched in 2018, Chicago Cycleboats instantly became a favorite of tourists and locals alike looking for a unique way to experience the Chicago River. Chicago Cyleboats allowed bigger parties of customers to experience the Chicago River and Lake Michigan on captain-led cruises on larger vessels. Over the years, the business expanded from one to four Cycleboats and introduced a party barge to the fleet in 2022.

Downtown Docks

Downtown Docks began operations in 2015 and is a private docking company allowing customers to dock their private boats in four prime Chicago River docks. Downtown Docks has led us to build exceptional professional relationships with vendors, the boating community, and the city of Chicago.

Retro & Donut Boats

The Retro and Donut boats have become a beloved attraction among visitors all over the country. These boats provide a distinctive and enjoyable way to navigate the the waterways. Their operation is user-friendly and amusing, ensuring a delightful experience for all boat enthusiasts. The retro-boat boasts a vintage charm, while the Donut boat offers a unique perspective. These boats are also environmentally conscious and fitted with electric motors. They are available in Chicago, IL, Austin, TX, Tampa, FL, Washington, DC, Milwaukee, WI.

Making our gelato in small batches locally ensures exceptional freshness and an all-natural product.
