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!!!!
We had an absolutely amazing time and couldn’t have been happier with our rental. The boat was incredible and the overall experience and communication was so great! Would definitely recommend for a fantastic day out on the lake!
Great experience and great for a work outing! This boat was a great size for our group of 10 and everyone could hangout together in one spot, both on the front and back of boat. 10/10 would recommend!
Great trip on "My Kinda Party!" Chris was easy to work with throughout and the boat was just as expected and described. We were taken out by Captain Dan and he was amazing! Highly recommend!
