Parking and Transportation

All students and guests must find transportation on their own.

Drop off location: Please see the map below. The Turnaround 1 is the best drop off location as it takes you directly to the Odyssey. 
 
Parking: Navy Pier West Garage (Closest to the boat) and East Garage - Rate is $36
 
SpotHero App: Shows parking that is available and close to the pier. Rates vary between $15 and $35. You will have a good distance to walk to get to the pier. You can begin reserving a parking space with time in advance for a cheaper rate.
 
BE PREPARED FOR TRAFFIC: Seniors should be very mindful of traffic and must plan accordingly to arrive to the boat on time. Traffic in downtown can be difficult to navigate and can cause heavy delays. Please give yourself plenty of time in advance so that you arrive to the boat no later than 6:00pm. The boat will not wait for you it will leave immediately at 7:00pm.

After Prom

Prom ends promptly at 11:00 PM. Please have your transportation ready to pick you up on time. I ask that all of our Seniors make good decisions and get home safe. Communicate with your families at all times. Don't risk everything you have worked hard for because of one wrong decision.
