Enjoy spectacular city views, exciting Great Lakes history, and the joy of sailing aboard Windy, Chicago's very own tall ship. During each 60-75 minute cruise, passengers are encouraged to join the crew and help hoist the sails and pass commands from deck to deck aboard the 148' gaff rig schooner, Tall Ship Windy. Windy sails with the wind, making every sail different, as we go where the wind takes us. The crew loves to talk and answer questions about sailing, Great Lakes History and Chicago's skyline. Most days you can find a "pirate" or a 19th Century sailor, or two, telling stories of Great Lakes History, Real Life Piracy, and ghostly happenings. Tickets are sold online or at the Windy Ticket Booth, located at Navy Pier.
