You will arrive at the harbor and be greeted by my crew member. The crew member will brief you about the harbor, what to know and expect on the dock and a bit of history about Burnham. You will board the boat and be instructed on safety and moving around the boat while enjoying refreshments and snacks. We will depart the harbor and cruise north along the Lake front from Northerly Island to Montrose Harbor taking in the Chicago Lake front. I will spin the boat around and head back through the famous water spot known as the “playpen”, head around Navy Pier and view the Centennial (Ferris) wheel, head out on the Lake past the Chicago light house to watch the sunset and then head back to Monroe harbor to see Buckingham Fountain and watch the fireworks, ending the evening returning to the harbor for a nightcap.
I hold a Master Captain 100-ton United States Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Credential. It is a captain’s license to operate vessels up to 100 tons on the Great Lakes and Inland Waters including 6-pack charters and assistance towing. I captain on the Chicago River for Wendella Water Taxis since March 2018. I have owned and operated my own boats since 1983 on the Chain of Lakes in Northern Illinois and Lake Michigan since 2005. I am a member of the “The Maritime Consortium, Inc.” And “Boat US – Boat Owners Association of the USA”.
