Aboard since 2014
From Chicago, IL
I rented Ryan's boat for a group of 9. The boat was big enough for all of us, and we had a great time. Ryan was a pleasure from the time I messaged him until our trip was concluded. This was my first time renting but Ryan made everything quite easy. I highly recommend renting from him.
Ryan was a great captain and very communicative from the time we booked through the day of our excursion. Ryan is experienced taking people on Lake Michigan, and he knows his boat and the lake very well. I would highly recommend Ryan and his vessel for an outing on the Lake. You will be very satisfied!
Ryan was very responsive and professional during the booking and planning process. His boat was beautiful and very well maintained - perfect for our group's day in the playpen. He even brought along a fantastic raft that provided hours of enjoyment in the water. Would DEFINITELY book with Ryan again!
Ryan and his guests were great renters, he took great care of my boat and was very knowledgeable and returned it in super-clean condition. It was a pleasure having him and his guests onboard and I look forward to seeing them again. I highly recommend Ryan!
I stumbled upon this website, feeling frustrated with renting through a larger, non-private, Chicago boat company. Ryan responded quickly and was very accomodating from the start. He was flexible in what we wanted to do for the day and took us cruising on the lake and then docked in the playpen for the remainder. Boat was amazing, in great condition, and we enjoyed hanging out on his multi-person raft. He and his friend that came along also made us some drinks and provided a larger cooler full of ice. They pretty much stayed out of our way, but we enjoyed their company as well. It was a great experience and an awesome way to end the summer. Next time we will rent for the full day as we could have stayed out there for many more hours. Will rent from Ryan again for sure.
We had an AMAZING day on the boat with Ryan! His boat is beautiful and in great condition! He had a big cooler with ice and a huge raft all ready to go when we got there! Ryan was so communicative and unbelievably accommodating -- my friends and I have a BLAST and can't wait to do it again!! I definitely recommend renting from Ryan!
We had a great day on the lake with Ryan. He is an awesome captain with an awesome boat. Ryan was very accommodating and made the trip a great experience! He hooked us up with a cooler, ice and a huge raft. I highly recommend him. Thanks Ryan!
Had an amazing day out on the water. Ryan was very accommodating and his boat was perfect for our group. Boat was clean and had no issues. Ryan was real quick with communication and helped us get everything we needed to go.
Ryan was incredibly flexible throughout the day regarding our plan of action-- We anchored at the Playpen and he suggested taking a drive over to Lollapalooza to see if we could catch some of the sets. It was a great way to end the day, couldn't have gone better.
