40' express cruiser.

Fuel is pre-paid by you in the amount of 10 gallons per rental hour and that is already included in the hourly rate. Further fuel use is charged to the renter.

A USCG licensed captain with great lakes endorsement is required for your charter, along with passing the checkout, and being part of a random drug test program for the last 6 months. You can take our checkout course on Monday and Tuesday mornings. If you do not meet the above qualifications, there are several captains available, the typical rate for a captain is $75/hr.

We do not cancel charters in advance of charter time for weather due to the forecast. If you are in Chicago you know that an 80% chance of rain for the day is nearly meaningless (like Memorial day weekend 2017, the forecast called for rain almost all weekend and we experienced 22 minutes of rain on Saturday and that was all there was). No shows are charged full rate if a charter is possible. We sail in scattered showers, but not persistent rain or in electrical storms.

Rain delays: If you arrive and there is a storm overhead, or one approaching on the radar, we will ask you to wait in the boat (you are not on the clock at that point) until it passes if we think it will pass in an hour or less. If it is apparent that it will not pass within an hour we will cancel the charter if you prefer not to wait any longer. Shortened charters are charged a pro-rated amount.

If we cancel your charter due to conditions, you do not incur any charge, your full deposit is refunded, and there is no future obligation.

The cancellation fees below are the percentage of the full charter fee including taxes and fees, not a percentage of the deposit

15% – 7 full days or more in advance ($150 minimum for Power Boats, $100 minimum for Sailboats)
30% – 72 hours or more in advance
50% – 24 hours or more in advance
75% – 4 hours or more in advance
100% – less than 4 hours in advance or no shows
Special events (July 1-4, Aug 18-20), have double the cancellation/change fees listed above.
