Ryan was awesome captain! Showed us around Chicago and even took us on the river. Very nice person to be around and feels just like he is part of the crew. He thought us how to drive the boat and let guys drive on their own. We bought a tube and he was kind enough to drive us around and helped us set up everything with it on the boat. His boat is awesome and he told us a lot about boats and water skies. Also we went down from Waukegan , il to Chicago and didn't burn much of gas. Very happy with our choice and trip! Thank you, Ryan!!!!
Stan could not have been nicer. He arrived early to drop off the boat and was very understanding when we had an issue getting back into the harbor delaying our return time. The whole experience was a great time and would highly recommend renting from Stan and I am sure we will rent again from him.
Boris and vira were great. Easy going and were awesome renters. I did ride along as lake michigan can get get dangerous quick. Would love to have them back to teach them wakeboarding and surfing with better conditions. (Wind changed to sw and there were too many clouds)
Walter is great to charter from and Beckoned is an absolute joy to sail. From first contact, Walter was very communicative and accommodating. He provided sound feedback and helped me build an excellent itinerary - from Pier 30 and up the East River to Long Island Sound and back. I've already booked my next charter with Walter and look forward sailing Beckoned again.
Let's start with meeting Darren, A very helpful and thoughtful renter. He made sure I had everything I needed to navigate the area for the first time. As anyone who boats knows, getting in the water in a new area can be unsettling . We had a great time, the boat felt well maintained and ran well. I also called Darren several times to ask advice during the rental period and he was very helpful. I can't wait to rent from him again!
