    We had a great time on the boat and the captain was perfect. Will be booking again.

  • Salvador

    The boat was great

  • Simon

    Initially was a bit frustrated with the process because the booking seemed to include the captain fee, but really the captain fee was just an estimate (which turned out to be much lower than the real cost) and I had to go book a captain and pay him separately.

    The boat itself was in great condition and all in all was definitely worth the price paid.

    We had a great time. Captain Rich was great and so was his handler

  • Del

    Great time on a great boat with great people. Jimmy and crew were amazing as well.

    Our original captain had some things come up and Shana at the office hooked us up with Jimmy right on time. Thanks Shana!

    One thing to mention: the boat is slightly different from what’s pictured. It isn’t red and the inside’s a little different also.

    The trip I booked with Sommy was awesome! We had such a great time for my birthday. There were a few hiccups as far as response timing with Sommy but all of my questions were answered. The captain I originally booked accidentally overbooked himself but connected me to a new captain that same day so we were ready to go. Everyone that I dealt with as far as my trip was very attentive and polite. The boat was the perfect size for my group and we all had such a great time. Thanks!

  • Libby

    Boat was decently sized for 6 people + captain. New to the boat rental with captain scene and Sommy replied quickly and was able to assist with a rental on short term notice. Our captain Sean was very easy going and enjoyable to talk to.

  • Stefani

    Captain Justin was great! He was laid back and wanted us to all have fun and party. Loud music, good drinks! We went to the playpen and watched the fireworks. Great time!

  • Michael

    Working with Knot My Boat charters was a wonderful experience, specifically due to Captain Dennis P. and his deckhand Anna. It was a little choppy due to the weather but they found some beautiful views of Chicago in a couple harbors. My only criticism of the business was the front office who decided after we signed up that clients needed solicit all of the captains. This was not only an inconvenience for us, but the captains too. Still, great five-star experience and we’ll use Denis and Anna again if we book a charter.

    Greg was a fantastic renter! He is obviously an experienced boater, communicated well, was on time for both pickup and drop off, and treated my boat as his own. I am very hopeful that his experience was as positive as mine and he will be a return customer!
