Come see the most spectacular view of Chicago from the sailboat Ripple. Spend time floating away from it all at Monroe Harbor. Rest in the sun or shaded sitting area. Have a sunset dinner on the back deck watching the city lights come alive. Take time from the fun at Grant Park festivals or Navypier, to ride the tender (boat taxi) out to your private spot on the water. See the fireworks from the comfortable sway of the boat with the stereo playing... you will never forget this experience!

Excellent location with gracious and understanding hosts. Plan for traffic! An excellent weekend in the city yet still away from the stresses of life. Nothing like boating.

There is nothing like floating calmly on Lake Michigan, as the sun sets behind the city and the city lights come up. What a fantastic location! The boat has comfortable space for two, and we enjoyed falling asleep to the sounds of lake life. It's like camping on the lake - be …

The views, the location, the experience simply cannot be beat. I've lived in Chicago for decades and never had the experience of sleeping under the skyline on the lake...even dinner cruises that I've been on fall far short of this experience. Be prepared that you're on a boat. …

Response from Erin:
V- Berths on boats are called queen when the widest measurement of the "v" is equivalent to a queen bed. It does pinch down to a point at your feet and can feel tight if you slept with your head at the point rather than at the widest part.

We really enjoyed our stay on the Ripple! It was a unique experience relaxing on the water and seeing the city as we relaxed and floated! Erin was very accommodating and a great host! She met us and showed us what we needed to know about the boat, the tender service and even r…
