Flawless perfection Boat Excursions Chicago

Honestly, a perfect experience. Exactly on-time departure and arrival. Perfect boat - size and look. The Captain and crew were friendly and knowledgable. My son raised the sail. Hard. Fun. An experience. The frozen drinks and cold beers were excellent. The views? Wow. A great soundtrack plays during the excursion at perfect volume level. A great time for all ages of Pirates. I guess I liked it :) Just do it. Thank me later.

Chicago lifer and I loved it! Windy City Boat Tours

I’m a life long Chicagoan and I brought my out of town relatives on this cruise and we all loved it! It was a gorgeous summer late afternoon and the city was just sparkling. I loved having a new view of the city. Crew excellent. My nephew helped hoist a sail. Narrator very entertaining and informative. I thought the price was great for the experience.

Chicago from the water - worth every dime! Chicago Fireworks Cruise

What a great experience! Beautiful and ever-changing views of the night skyline from the lake. When they hoisted the sails and turned off the motor, it was so peaceful. The incredible fireworks were the perfect ending to this cruise. Highly suggest!!
