Lake Michigan offers incredible boating opportunities, with all types of boats available to rent or charter. This huge lake is best enjoyed on the water, whether it be on a houseboat, yacht charter, sailboat, or pontoon. A summer day paired with a boat and your best friends on Lake Michigan is the best combination. Host an event onboard a yacht or zip around on a jet ski.
My husband I were new to the marina, so it was a bit difficult to find it, and also to find parking. Fortunately, parking was very close to the dock, at 31st Street Beach Parking, and it seemed to be free though there were several parking meters there (they did not seem to work). The dock was easy to find once we were at the marina, and John immediately greeted us as we came near. His crew and he were super friendly and we started our voyage very soon after we boarded. His crew, Daryl and Tony, were very friendly, excellent guides, and the yacht was extremely well-kept and clean. While we were unsure about navigating around the boat, especially to the front of the boat, Daryl and Tony provided plenty of assistance and brought us our food and drinks at the front of the boat. Also, the view, perched on the upper deck was fantastic as well. We had a great view of the Chicago skyline as we navigated around McCormick Place, Museum Campus, Navy Pier, and LakeShore Drive near the John Hancock building. It surprisingly took my husband 12 years for him to enjoy a yacht in Chicago, and he and I live by the lake. This was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable events we did in Chicago, and my husband and I will definitely do this again in the near future with John Valentino and his crew.
100% worth every penny! We got a great trip through the lake and river with lots of tips of where to go for us out of town people. The boat was in excellent condition and exceeded all expectations! Thanks for the ride!! ☺️
My dad, a Navy Veteran, was finally laid to rest upon the majestic waters of Lake Michigan. Capt. Bob made this solemn experience a once in a lifetime event. He took us out on his perfectly clean boat to the cribs with a perfect view of the Chicago skyline so I would have a beautiful spot to scatter my beloved dad's ashes. He made this event better than I could have ever imagined. Thanks, Capt. Bob, for an event to be cherished forever. Rest in Glory, Mitchell Glaser! You will be missed...
Amazing!! My party booked this as a graduation event. We did an evening tour along the lakefront and the river, and the views at night were incredible. Captain Mike was amazing. The website makes communicating with boat owner easy- this was my first time doing this and I asked probably a ridiculous amount of questions and he kindly answered everything very promptly. The boat was excellent - with amenities such as water toys and an indoor space with AC, a kitchen with a frig sink and microwave. The stereo system was a highlight - steaming music from our phones throughout the boat. We all had a wonderful time.
We had a wonderful time on our Saturday booking. The captain was incredibly quick to respond to all questions leading up to our outing to help up prepare for the day. The boat itself was great, and perfectly accommodated our group of 10. While the captain had a route in mind, he was happy to make any our of requests happen. Would definitely book again!
We had SUCH a fun time on this boat!!! We couldn’t have asked for a better time for my sister’s bachelorette party and everyone agreed it was the best part of the weekend. Our captains nick and Laura were FANTASTIC and so much fun. I couldn’t recommend this listing more!
