We had a great experience renting from Callie! We made our plans last minute and she was very responsive. Kayaks and carts are in great condition. Parking is convenient across the street from her house. It’s an easy walk from there to the boat launch. Public restrooms are available at the EGR public library right next to the boat launch. We will definitely be renting from Callie again!
An incredible experience with a standout captain. He was friendly, genuine, and encouraging when it came meeting our needs. The boat was equipped with everything we needed and more such as floaties, a pad for tubing, a speaker, etc. If I could rent from him again I absolutely would. Last but not least, he even offered to give us a ride home which topped off a great time on the water.
Memo was so considerate and focused on making sure that we really enjoyed our time on the boat. The weather made it a little cold for swimming so he gave us a sightseeing tour. The boat was equipped with a lily pad, tube, giant inflatable raft, an iced cooler, and a Bluetooth speaker. He wasn’t afraid to drive the boat fast and give the kids some excitement. He always checked in to ensure everything was okay and what more he could do. The cost was very reasonable and all inclusive (except tip) unlike several of the other postings. We will definitely use his services again and I’ll tell my friends.
Memo is the greatest of all time, and then some. All of the glowing reviews for him here are well founded, but even then fail to do him full justice. I would recommend his service to any of my friends, and I would exclusively use his services in the future whenever possible. Personally, before going, my biggest concern was that the boat might be too small or otherwise not align with the vision my group of six had for a day on the water. This was completely unfounded - we had a total blast, with loads of space and all manner of activities of our choosing, from high-speed tubing to just relaxing with drinks and music. The whole time, Memo was totally accommodating of whatever we wanted to do, and himself a phenomenal addition to the group dynamic. Beyond that, Memo went FAR out of his way to give us a full and wonderful experience. We were disorganized and some of us showed up late; Memo held off on starting our clock until the party was all there. Then, even after substantially extending our duration on account of that, he gave us even more time since we were having so much fun. I can't explain how grateful we were for his flexibility and accommodation - it turned our messy plans into the best boating trip ever. In short, if you're considering renting a boat in Chicago, you should book with Memo. It's the best experience and best value on your dollar of anything else around.
Captain Memo was absolutely amazing!!! He made sure my 3 kids had an amazing time from swimming to playing with floats in the playpen and even tubing in the open waters!! He was incredibly kind, patient and accommodating! On the way home my daughter fell asleep and he was so thoughtful he went very slow so the waves wouldn’t wake her up. I highly recommend Captain Memo! He made our lake experience here in Chicago wonderful and my my kids and I had a blast!! Thank you Captain Memo!!!
Memo was a great host! We had trouble parking but he came to pick us up, bring us to the boat and even extended the rental time since we were a few minutes late. He had speakers provided and additional ice on the boat for any drinks/food we brought. He took us out on the lake near Diversey harbor, over to the playpen, to the south side of the city past Navy Pier and then back. When leaving the boat, he was kind enough to take us back to our car. Would definitely recommend booking with Memo.
