    “Just finished my first boat trip with TikiBoat Chicago. It was one of the best trips I’ve had touring the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. The boat was great and big enough to comfortably fit our entire party. When we dropped anchor, we they even had a water slide we could use. So much fun.”

    “I recently hosted a team building activity with TikiBoat Chicago. The Captain and First Mate were excellent. They even customized our music. The group was having so much fun we extended our party another hour. Outstanding.!”

    Ive been on this boat twice now. Each year we go for my girlfriend’s birthday. 3 words: IT’S A BLAST! It’s a two level, party animal, smashing good pontoon type boat. They allow you to bring your own beer and food. They have a grill on board, TVs, and speakers to blast some tunes. It is so affordable. Split it 12 ways along your friends and everyone can bring some drinks and what not…..”

    “Tikiboat is everything I hoped for. Went out on the lake for my Bachelor party and things got out of control in the best way possible. Thanks to Pablo and our captain Jeremy!”

    “I cannot praise the TikiBoat enough. Captain MarK – with a capital K because he kicks ass – was awesome. I reserved the boat from 8 to 11pm to watch the fireworks and have a “No longer a bacheloretter, party” for my friend. I was very concerned the weather would not cooperate but Captain Mark kept in touch with me all day to tell me about the conditions. Luckily, the skies cleared and we had a blast on the boat. Dancing, tiki drinks, fireworks, what more could you ask for?….”

    “Me and four friends booked the TikiBoat for a bachelor party daytime activity, and it was the most fun we had all weekend……Had a great time and I will definitely be doing this again.”

    “TikiBoat Chicago is the best boat charter in Chicago!……It’s no wonder that there are so many others that try to copy this establishment. You can bring your ipod to blast your own jams as you relish the views of the skyline from the lake point of view. Bring food to grill and drinks to party and you will have an absolutely amazing time…..”

    “Just had a rockin’ tiki time on the Tiki Boat Chicago last weekend. A friend and I wanted to throw an end of summer bash on the lake for our friends when we noticed the boat in all its tiki grandeur — complete with a slide down the back — at Monroe Harbor. When we called the owner, Paul Newman, to rent the boat for a Friday night, he was super sweet and helpful, and seemed genuinely enthusiastic about our party…..”

    “My friends and I have made the TikiBoat an annual occurrence because it is so much fun…..Book it, grab 11 friends, bring some food, and drinks, and once the cost is split 12 ways, it’s affordable for anyone. Don’t forget the tip!”
