Wendella’s Summer Fireworks Cruise departs from our main dock at the Wrigley Building and heads out to Lake Michigan for the Navy Pier fireworks. This cruise will lead you north and south along the city’s spectacular lit up skyline.

"I want to go again and again and again! I encourage anyone and everyone to just do this. Don't think about it. Just go. GO!!"

"The best! Our tour took place on a Wednesday night and the ship captain let us take in the fireworks off of Navy Pier... Definitely a bonus!"

Yelp (July 15, 2013)

"Once you make it to the lock to go out on the lake the tour guide takes a seat and you're free to roam, grab drinks and admire the city from a far. This is *the best* nighttime skyline view of the city."

Yelp (November 8, 2013)

"It was an absolutely gorgeous night with a bright full moon. The lake was so calm that the captain was able to take us out into the lake just past the lighthouse, which apparently is a rare treat. "
