Due to coronavirus mitigations, Wendella requires all guests to wear a face covering while on the docks and on board the boat, even while outside. The boat tour company also asked that people practice social distancing between other guests and employees.

Chicago can expect a sunny weekend to take a trip along the river. Friday, opening day for boat tours, will likely include party cloudy skies with highs in the mid 50s. Mostly sunny skies are then on tap for Saturday with a high of 50.
