Chicago at Sunset Tour - 2 hours

Enjoy this 2 hour Sunset Cruise as you watch the sun set over the Chicago skyline from Lake Michigan.

Enjoy time with friends or a romantic evening with someone special. Whether a tourist or a local resident, Wendella Boats is the best way to experience Chicago.

As another way of giving back to the community, a portion of the ticket price goes directly toward the construction and development of the Chicago Riverwalk, scheduled for completion in 2016.

"But I have to say the sunset cruise was just really breathtaking. It is a nice romantic cruise out through the lock onto the lake and then to the North then back south of the river. The views are just amazing and the cruise lasts about 2 hours. We took a lot of pictures and just loved it. They do talk about Chicago's history and the buildings visible from the lake."

"We took the sunset tour in August (75 min.) and we saw buildings in daylight, sunset, and in the dark (great photos with reflection of light in the water). The transition was dramatic and heightened the enjoyment of touring the river and skyline."

"Last year we took the architectural cruise and this year the sunset cruise. We enjoyed the history and education about the different buildings on the architectural tour. It gets dark while you are on the cruise and you get to see the lights on the buildings along the river."

"It was perfect timing for the sunset and we really enjoyed the information tour guide they provided. Anywhere you sit is within earshot of the narration- they have speakers everywhere!"
