The boat and charter were exactly as described. Chris was very communicative and easy to work with. I would highly recommend Captain Dan Chavez. He was so nice and put in the extra effort to ensure we had a great time. I will absolutely charter from Chris again!
This boat was exactly as pictured, with plenty of room for 12 of us to hang out in the front or back. Chris was easy to work with and Captain Dan Chavez was awesome. The only downside was the speakers were hard to hear at the front of the boat. I'd definitely book again!
Our experience renting Chris’s boat was great! The boat was beautiful and in great condition, and the price was reasonable for a holiday. We highly recommend booking Captain Dan Chavez as your captain as well! He was super fun and made sure we were safe and secure the whole time.
This boat cruise was a birthday gift for my sister and she was very please. I was also please. The captain Patrick was awesome and the rest of the crew. I would definitely recommend this company to friends and family. What a great experience for all of us.
The Chicago yachting team was amazing and very accommodating. We had 12 people on this boat and it was a blast. We will be renting again in the future. Also captain Dan chavez was recommended and he was great too. Whole team made us feel very welcome.
