What is a Sunset Concert Cruise Like?
Upon entering from the gangway, you will find yourself aboard the spacious and beautifully designed "Spirit of LaSalle". Select a table of your choice and enjoy the boat ride as we are cruising on the Sturgeon Bay canal towards the open waters of Green Bay. While cruising, listen to the captain's narrated tour highlighting the many points of interest including beautiful light houses and offshore islands. A fine buffet dinner will be served as we cruise out into Green Bay.

Relax after the meal and enjoy the live entertainment scheduled for the evening. To top off the romantic atmosphere, we quite often get to see a spectacular sunset over the waters of Green Bay.

Bring your camera so you can capture the essence of a delightful setting! A Sunset Concert Cruise is sure to provide an evening of fond memories.

When do I pay for the tickets?
Your tickets will be guaranteed and held with your credit card. Without giving us your credit card as a guarantee you have NO reservations! The actual payment transaction is made when you pick up your tickets on the cruise day - just before cruise departure. By doing so, we do not have to process refunds if your cruise is cancelled since you have not paid anything in advance. See refund policy below.
Back To Top


What is your cancellation and refund policy?
Our very generous cancellation policy allows you to cancel your reservations up until noon on the day of your cruise without being charged. However, you will be charged for your reservations if you do not cancel by noon or do not show up to honor your reservations.
Back To Top


What happens when the weather is bad?
The Spirit of LaSalle can sail in just about any weather.  We may have to cancel if weather conditions do not promise a pleasant experience for guests.  We will call you only if your cruise is cancelled.  It is important that you let us know where we can reach you by phone on the day of your cruise. You can find out the status of your cruise by calling 920-854-2986 after 1:00 PM.

Can I transfer to another cruise if my cruise is canceled?
Yes! Just call 920 854 2986 to transfer your reservations to an alternate
cruise date. Transfer is subject to availability of space and confirmation.

Do I get a refund if a cruise is canceled due to inclement weather?
Yes! You will get a full refund if you prepaid by check or cash. If you prepaid by credit card and need to cancel your reservation, a 6% credit card cancellation fee will be deducted from your refund. To avoid this fee we recommend paying by check on mail orders. If your reservations were held with your credit card there is no transaction and no charge to you.

Can I purchase gift certificates?
Gift certificates can be purchased any time. These "open date" certificates can be used for any Sunset Concert Cruise scheduled.

A confirmation will be sent promptly by email or snail mail. When you check in at the ticket desk on the day of your cruise please exchange the gift certificates for cruise tickets.
