They refused and ignored all my attempts to contact them regarding a refund discrepancy. Horrible customer service.

I've been taking lessons with this company for over a year now. What I appreciate most is that it's a practical learning experience and you can be as intense or passive with how much or how quickly you learn. Not only have I learned how to sail, I've met some great people, as many are regulars. The view of Chicago is amazing from offshore, and to see it from the peace of a sailboat is wonderful. It never gets old. Top all that off with a beer or two after returning to dock, and it makes for one heck of a time.

If you love air shows or fireworks like I do ...there is nothing like the experience you get when out on the water. My fiancee and I decided this is the year to go sailing and see the show ...and we are glad we did. Just the two of us, we shared the boat with another couple and a gentleman and his son. There was a captain and crew to see us out and see to our needs. We did some swimming, snacking and drinking ...such a great day. the best part? The planes flew right over us! So exhilarating it cannot be explained ..only experienced. These guys also do other types of cruises and lessons. I hope to have a chance to get back out with these guys again.

Chicago is amazing, but getting out on the lake and looking back at how expansive the city is was even better. Watch the sun set, listen to Dave Matthews Band AND see a fireworks show and you have one perfect day! I would have rated this excellent, however our awesome Captain John really could have used a first mate, the sailboat's hull was kind of a mess (although who spends time there?) and as novices, we probably should have gotten a Sailboat 101 intro.

For the adventurous Chicago visitor, sailing along the gorgeous Chicago skyline is a can't-miss experience. 3rd Coast sailing instructors take extra care of novice-beginning sailors thru expert senior-mates, teaching practical, hands-on sailing basics and advanced techniques. Sailing crew-mates also doubled as great new friends!
