I am a USCG licensed merchant mariner and have been boating for over 40 years. Safety is my main concern. Providing a memorable fun experience for my passengers is second!

    Terry and Vanessa were the best! Everything went perfect, couldn’t ask for anything better. They went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable, took us where we wanted to go, and overall made it a very enjoyable experience. Would definitely go again!

    Terry and Vanessa were fantastic. My party of six had a great time on this beautiful boat. We even learned new things about Chicago since Terry shared some of his knowledge from years being on the lake. They were very communicative and patient and understanding when I got lost on the way to the harbor. I would highly recommend!
