Our purpose/vision is to grow into a leading business in Chicago for boat rentals. Below are the goals to achieve this vision:
- To constantly grow and strive for excellence while staying focused on quality and comfort
- To be known for good prices, great fun and honest straightforward service
- To leave our customers feeling pleased after making use of our service so that they won’t hesitate to come again
“We’re gonna need a bigger boat,” the famous one-liner from the movie, “Jaws” has become the running joke at Chicago Boat Rentals. As we continue to grow, and our guests return, we continue to grow our fleet and we will always contune to think ahead to our “bigger boat.”
Providing people with a fun experience on our boat tours come in different packages. Also, we factor in comfort so that customers are able to get great value for their money. Our mantra is: See the City Differently While Being Your own Captain.
