We had a wonderful time! It was easy to communicate with Chris prior to the charter and he was very accommodating with our route/itinerary requests. On the day of the charter, he ensured we were set up with with Bluetooth and had everything we needed for a fun outing on the river. Afterwards, he even helped us carry our bags back to the car! A great experience.
I’m convinced Chris and his team are the best in Chicago. I’ve booked with him a couple times because each time it’s the best experience for my party and I. He is so awesome. Such a cool guy and really makes sure everything is smooth going. I feel so lucky to have found him and his team. If you want the absolute BEST yachting experience in all of Chicago; book with Chris!!!!
I rented from Chris in June 2021 to take my family that was visiting to see the fireworks over navy pier. The boat was perfect for hanging out and watching the show.
We had 8 people and we fit perfectly, we had so much fun this boat is great for the river and playpen
Great trip! Would highly recommend booking this boat, as well as hiring Captain Dan.
John and his crew are terrific. They listen to you, they operate a safe boat and go the extra mile for you. They helped refill our cups. They made sure we got the best view of the fireworks. They didn't rush us. The Captain Maynard fit the boat into a tight space when we docked at RPM Seafood to pick up dinner. They wiped down the front boat so we could sit up front. We loved the 31st street harbor as we got to see the city coming south to north and then north to south. Go with John and his crew. They will make your event an even more special event.
