Amazing service! I rented the boat from Shay who made the entire experience so easy and exciting! He went over detail on what to expect and what to bring. We hired Captain Paul who offered the best service and catered to all my friends. I will definitely be renting again.
Popped the question to my girlfriend on the bow of this boat as we entered the Chicago river! It was amazing! Capt Matt arranged for everything and did a great job. Boat was clean, safe and the perfect size! Definitely a head turner!
Super easy to book our trip and coordinate with the owner and captain. Everyone was very friendly and polite. We all had a lot of fun and felt very safe on the yacht! The photos are absolutely accurate and the yacht is beautiful and clean. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great experience with their friends!
It was a great experience cruising around Lake Michigan. Communication with Shay was smooth and easy and we enjoyed every minute of it. Highly recommended!
Amazing experience! The boat is very well kept, booking and coordination was super easy. Highly recommended!
John was timely, professional, and his boat was very well kept. Will definitely join John again!
