“Family Water Skiing - Lots of Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We rented a boat with a guide for an hour and had a great time. 3 kids, 11, 15, and 17 enjoyed the Water Skiing, and had a blast. I had no desire to rent a boat by myself, so I was glad that you have the option to rent a boat with a guide to do skiing, tubing or whatever you want. Will definitely go back to Chic's Marina, we all had a wonderful time.

“Chic's on the Sagamore property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Stayed at the Sagamore and rented a boat from the concession that you have on their property. Tyler helped us from start to finish. He is a great asset to your company. Very friendly,helpful and explained everything thoroughly. Had loads of fun just motoring around.

“family water skiing - worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Family of 5 (3 boys 7, 12, 14) rented boat with "guide/driver" for 2 hours on Sunday August 25. $245. It was Awesome. Well worth the money. Included everything, gas, all the water toys etc..Our kids had never tried this. We did tubing and skiing and 2 hours was plenty. The guide had skis of all sizes which allowed everyone to try as well as a tube and all kinds of wake boards (did not try those). I had not water skied in 20 years but was able to get up using a rope behind the boat. The kids skied on the side of the boat with this extended pole that stuck out. The guide talked them through it and all 3 got up! Not on the first try, but they did it.

I wanted to rent a boat for the day and go it alone with a guide, but glad I didn't It would have been more expensive and the family would have gotten tired after a few hours.

Check this place out. Good time for sure.

“No problems after 3 rentals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Last year we rented a 40hp for 3 hours...this year we went for the whole day and had a great time despite the fish being uncooperative and water being choppy. The boat was in good condition and the staff was great. We went back with the whole family a few days later and took out a pontoon boat for 3 hours and also had no problems.

“Worst Marina on the lake”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The service at Chic's is terrible and the boats are in rough condition. The employees, including the manager, acted like they were doing us a favor. I will never go back to this place. I recommend Yankee (South end of Lake George) or Snug Harbor (two locations at the North end). Both have great customer service, better boats and were slightly less expensive.
