Will definitely be booking again! I celebrated my 24th birthday with some friends and it was an amazing experience. The owner responded quickly and answered ALL questions. The price was great for 4 hours on a BEAUTIFUL day and the Debonair was exactly as pictured! Captain Jim was amazing! We enjoyed talking and learning from him! Do not hesitate to book!!
First let me say how kind, funny and accommodating Captain Jim is. He explained everything we needed to know. He provided us with ice and water. He took an amazing route along the lake! The vessel itself is beautiful. Comfortably accommodating for 12 ppl. We had the 7p-11p sail and was able to catch the fireworks at the end of the night. 10/10! We’ll definitely be booking again!
Great boat and captain! We loved the experience. Overall, best trip yet. Just make a note that the captain "tip and fee" are not included in the quote and when we heard from the captain he was cool and explained why - but it was quite misleading to not read this in the quote or listing somewhere ahead of time. We were sent the "fine print" about the laws around this after the fact. Just be aware. Overall, great choice for a boat and captain and we'd book them again. Thanks!
Edwards boat was absolutely amazing. My friends and I really enjoyed it. I even recommended it to a few friends in the future. It’s exactly as the listing and his recommendation of Captain Jim was even awesome! From now on, I will only be renting with Edwards boat moving forward! Thank you again.
We had so much fun! It was a great way for us to relax after a long stretch of meetings. Captain Jim was very nice and attentive to our group. Booking was easy and communication was great from the start. We will definitely be using them again! Thanks!
I am a car aficionado by land and yacht lover by sea. Our yacht represents our attention to detail, excitement for a fun time and love for the water. I love Chicago and there is so much to do on the water. Looking forward to having you on our yacht!
