Great day on the water from start to finish. Capt. Chris has it down pat and makes you feel most welcome from the moment you call him. The boat was spotless and the highlight for me, my first trip to the Play Pen!! Now my wife wants to buy a boat but Capt Chris pumped the brakes on that plan!!

Captain Chris couldn't be nicer or more skilled! It was a bit of a choppy day when we went out, but he did his best to smooth things out. The boat was great, the location was great (also complimentary parking!) -- couldn't have asked for a better experience. I highly recommend them!

Amazingly Wonderful Day on the water with Captain Chris and his first mate Karen! We brought our own picnic smorgasbord, champagne and caviar and Karen served it like we were in a 4-Star restaurant. From the moment Chris met us to arrange the complimentary parking to the end of the day when we disembarked...the service was excellent. We enjoyed ourselves so much we decided to make our Family Father's Day Cruise with Knockout an annual tradition!

Let's talk about how amazing Capt. Lee is. But first: Maid of honor booked KO Charters for a bachelorette party - best idea ever. After a a nice cruise in Lake Michigan to view the city and then we finished the time at the Chicago Play Pen. The boat we were on is clean and modern. Very well kept. It really is worth every penny for a great day on the lake. Back to Captain Lee: fun, professional, charming, and (can I say) super handsome. We had an amazing time and will definitely find a reason to book KO Charters again. Thanks Lee!!!
