Wendella Sightseeing Boats has been a part of the Chicago community since its first narrated boat tour in 1935. Today, Wendella remains a family owned and operated company.
Wendella shows its appreciation to those who are currently serving and to those have served our country by offering discounts to Armed Forces/Military members.
Military Reservists and National Guard members with current Military ID are able to purchase tickets 50% off, if space is available. Military ID must be presented at the time of purchase.
*If there are large number of military members, they must stand aside until 5 minutes before the vessel departs. If there are tickets available then the transaction may be made to the military members.
Wendella also takes pride in giving back to the community. Each year we set aside a portion of our tickets for use by local charities for their fundraising efforts. Throughout the years, Wendella has worked with a number of local organizations to raise funds for schools, school districts, social service organizations, medical research operations and other organizations. Countless numbers of people throughout the Chicagoland area have benefited from the good work these organizations provide.
