One with a inside cabin, seriously it depends on how much education you want if you wanted his store cool one do the ones off of the river if you want just a generic one do the ones from Navy Pier

Boat tours might not run all the way through the end of November, it can be rather chilly and I assume that all boat tours in November would be from inside the boat, not on top.  The one from the Chicago Architecture Foundation is usually thought to be the best, I was a little surprised to see how expensive it has become as I think it was $25 or so the last time I did it.  If you aren't an architecture geek, you might try Wendella or Shoreline, they still give you a tour but it's not as detailed.  But you might be able to get less expensive tickets, maybe even 2 for 1 especially in November which is low season in Chicago

Yes I missed that it was in November. I know I took the tour in October near to the time that all the boats had to leave the marinas on the lake, but I didn't realize that the tour might not run in November

It looks like they run in the 1st part of November depending on the company, I've only taken them in the summer months when it's pleasant to sit up top where you have a better view. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure we've ridden bikes in November (and this year in February!!! In shorts!!!) so you just might get lucky

When I took it in October and it was rainy and cold so we were inside because of the rain

I wasn't aware that there was more than one, but I think the one organized by the Chicago Architecture Foundation would be the most informative.  (That's the one I took some years ago)
