The staff was very helpful and made the experience fun and enjoyable throughout the whole +3 hours. Riding through the Chicago river at night with all the city lights and trains going over your head was priceless. Also the watching the fireworks from the river was nice as well.

The crew was knowledgeable and the trip was fun despite having to get off the water sooner than planned due to a storm. The crew efficiently got us out of the water.
