We did a morning sail past navy pier up to a swimming area. The whole family had an memorable and enjoyable experience. Captain Kevin and Reed were great and relaxed. It was a unique way to see the city.

Capt. Kevin was very professional and made us feel right at home onboard. Weather was perfect, boat was fantastic. Really couldn't have been any better! We will be back for a sunset cruise next month!

Just a beautiful way to experience Chicago and the fabulous Lake Michigan. Captain Kevin and his crew person make this a special event. The catamaran is an extremely comfortable way to travel. You can bring food and drink but for 2 - 3 hours it...More

Absolutely loved sailing on the Phenix with Captain Kevin (and wife Dawn) on our vacation. You get great views of the city from the water off DuSable Harbor! The catamaran provided a comfy ride. Hosts were very gracious. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
