GetMyBoat customer reviews for Sailing in Illinois.
This was an amazing way to spend the morning on the water. Greg was obviously a great sailor and able to handle his 37' boat by himself. He was full of knowledge about the area and we loved hearing all the fun facts about the city of Chicago.
We had an awesome experience on Dragonfly. Greg arrived on time to pick us up and we immediately headed out onto the lake. Greg listened to what we needed as a new sailing couple and really delivered. Greg is extremely knowledgeable and a good teacher. We had a lot of fun, highly recommend Greg and Cait. We will be back aboard the next time we're in Chicago.
Everything was perfect! Nichole was very warm and friendly and a great capitan! The boat easily accomodated our group of five, we had perfect weather and really enjoyed our three hour sail (which seemed too go by in the blink of an eye). Love sailing in Chicago!
Benjamin communicated quickly and clearly and was super flexible as our plans changed. We rented the boat without a captain and he also provided a super helpful instruction sheet with every single thing we'd need to know... from harbor bathroom codes to the color of the jib sheet! So thorough and helpful, and it set us up for a perfect afternoon on the water. Thank you!
My friends and I have chartered a few boats here in Chicago, but this was by far the best experience we have had. We actually had to reschedule our initial cruise last minute due to bad weather. The boat owner, Russel, was very communicative and made the best of the not-so-great situation. He graciously offered to allow for our group to enjoy the boat for a lesser amount of time and stay at the dock. We were also able to reschedule for the following week and go out with Captain Brian at that time. Our group had such an amazing time during both sessions. We certainly had some strong personalities in the bunch (myself included) and Captain Brian was such a great sport. He was very professional but also blended in so well with our group that he was like another guest. We will without a doubt be reaching out to Russel & Captain Brian again for future events. Thank you both for making this such an unforgettable experience for us and our guests.
Wonderful trip to honor my father who passed away, and who loved sailing on Lake Michigan in the 1950s on his small sailboat. The boat was just large enough to accommodate the 3 of us, which was perfect - a large vessel or motorboat would not have been pertinent to my father's history. Ben was easy to talk to and understood the importance of what we were doing, which made it all the better. Unforgettable trip.
