We did a morning sail past navy pier up to a swimming area. The whole family had an memorable and enjoyable experience. Captain Kevin and Reed were great and relaxed. It was a unique way to see the city.

Capt. Kevin was very professional and made us feel right at home onboard. Weather was perfect, boat was fantastic. Really couldn't have been any better! We will be back for a sunset cruise next month!

Absolutely loved sailing on the Phenix with Captain Kevin (and wife Dawn) on our vacation. You get great views of the city from the water off DuSable Harbor! The catamaran provided a comfy ride. Hosts were very gracious. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
