Our good friend turned 40 recently and his wife planned an awesome surprise birthday party on Lake Michigan with this crew. The day was amazing! The boat was beautiful, and the crew friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend to others planning a fun and relaxing day on the water.

I booked the 13 person catamaran to surprise my husband on his 40th birthday and it was soo worth it! 3rd Coast Charters were incredibly helpful with booking, answering questions and making sure that we were well taken care of during the cruise. We sailed for a little bit and then went to the Play-Pen where Captain Brian grilled and set up the food that we brought on board. The boat is very comfortable and well kept as well! I have previously gone on a cruise out of Chicago very similar to this on a pontoon, and I will never do the pontoon option again! The experience with the catamaran and 3rd Coast Charters was sooo much better than the pontoon! I highly recommend this experience and this company!

Wow, what a great time overall! 3rd Coast Charters is incredible. Their friendliness, knowledge and hospitality is top notch. They made sure we could relax and have a fun day. They even grilled our lunch so we soak up the sun. I highly recommend them and would love to book them again. Next time for a full day! They make it hard to leave their catamaran.

Captain Brian was everything and more!!! I was looking for the perfect way to spend our short weekend in Chicago for my sister's bachelorette weekend and this experience was incredible! From booking to cruising on the water to having our snacks and drinks served up, everything was so easy and SO fun! Booking a boat ride with Captain Brian is a no brainer, it was the highlight of our weekend and everybody can't stop talking about it!

On August 9 I had the most AH-Mazing birthday celebration aboard this beautiful catamaran! Honestly, it was the best birthday surprise and a night I will always remember. Captain Russell and Captain Brian greeted us with smiles and were both incredibly attentive from the moment we arrived. They are fun, professional, experienced, lovely, thoughtful and really great guys. Attending to the smallest and largest want/need we had, it was one special evening. The spacious boat has everything you need and various locations to sit and enjoy the Chicago skyline. We sailed to Northerly Island, dropped anchor and enjoyed Foreigner and Cheap Trick while being mesmerized with the Navy Pier fireworks! We enjoyed champagne and sushi we had picked up for the celebration - YES you can bring your own food and drinks! By the end of this memorable 3-hour cruise, we became good friends with the other group also celebrating a birthday! I honestly cannot wait to go back and book for a longer trip. No matter the occasion, it is a promising night to remember aboard this gorgeous catamaran. Grateful to the love in my life and the captains for an unforgettable evening!
