Fun fact: Lake Michigan and Lake Huron are, geologically speaking, actually one huge lake called Lake Michigan-Huron. Luckily, while that may impact a third grader’s geography quiz, it has absolutely zero impact on the fun you’ll have with today’s Swoop from Tall Ship Red Witch — except that you now have a new conversation starter for cocktail parties. Choose from the following options:
- $40 for a cocktail skyline cruise (an $80 value)
- $60 for a fireworks cruise (a $120 value)
Climb aboard Red Witch, Chicago’s only wooden tall ship, and see the city the way it's meant to be seen. Experience incredible skyline views with a two-and-a-half-hour skyline cocktail cruise, or admire Chicago’s glow when she lights up at night with the two-hour and 45-minute fireworks sail. In addition to the cruises being BYOB, two glasses of wine or beer are also included in your ticket price. Feel free to bring aboard a picnic dinner to turn your sailing experience into a complete night out. You might as well admit it, enjoying food and drinks on a wooden tall ship in the middle of Lake Michigan while admiring the beautiful city of Chicago has to be the coolest thing you could do all summer. So what are you waiting for? Swoop in on today’s deal, climb aboard the Red Witch and throw your old third grade geography quiz overboard because to you, it will always be Lake Michigan.
