“I started sailing in 1989 and have been passionately doing so since. I've driven/ captained sail and motor boats (including twin screws) in Lake Michigan, USVI, BVI, Florida and the Mediterranean. I am available for charters as well as boat deliveries.”

From Chicago, IL
Joey was a fun captain. He showed us a great time. His boat is nice, enough room for us, the route he took was scenic, gave us a lot of opportunities to take great pictures of the Chicago sky line. It was worth every penny. Will definitely ride with him again at another occasion.
Overall, we did have a good time. However, it felt like Joey didn’t want to be friendly to us. We are a group of 6 very successful professionals and Joey did not respond nicely to us. He kept telling us what to do and didn’t let us enjoy the boat.. even though we paid money for... he expected gratuity and felt like he wanted to control everything. We tried to go to a familiar place on the lake and he decided for himself without asking our opinion. I would recommend AGAINST captain Joey.
Captain Joey’s excellence as sailor and personality as captain were essential in capping what became an immensely successful bachelor party I had thrown my best, life-long friend. Our embarkment from the Chicago Yacht club was coordinated was surprising ease as we began voyage of Lake Michigan. Due to adverse sailing conditions, we were unfortunately kept close to shore. Sympathetic, Captain Joey extended courtesy by allowing us to stay a half hour past our contracted time so that we may watch Saturday’s Navy Pier fireworks display from harbor. Professional service. Great conversationalist. Highly recommend.
We had a great experience with Captain Joey. While the weather wasn't perfect, we relied on Joey's experience and had a great time. Safety was paramount to Captain Joey and we appreciated that. The ship was great for our group of 5. We would certainly recommend Captain Joey and hope to get back out on the water with him.
