Great trip! I would recommend going for longer than 2 hours if you are able. We loved every moment and wished we had booked a longer tour.

Captain Mike was awesome! So much fun and very knowledgeable. We had our own playlist playing the whole time and the views..... the best I’ve ever seen. We sipped wine and had the time of our lives. It was worth every penny.

Lovely evening

Perfect weather for a sunset cruise. The views of the skyline were amazing. The captain was informative and pleasant. My only complaint is that we were not informed ahead of time that the hull of the boat was not open due to Covid. That meant we could not use the bathroom. A bit of a problem.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2020
Hi Kim! Thanks for sailing with us! I'm very glad you enjoyed the sailing but am sorry about the miscommunications regarding restricted access to the cabin below. I will check the product description and update as necessary to be sure people are aware of this COVID-19 related restriction. Thanks for pointing it out. See you on the water! Capt. Mike

Spectacular birthday celebration

It was truly the best choice to do something different, special, and romantic to celebrate my Wife's birthday. We recently moved to Chicago and was the first time we saw the city from the inner lake. The views and sunset were truly spectacular. Captain Mike was quite friendly and professional. We felt quite safe under the circumstances.
