Excellent service and very accommodating. Captain Mike was excellent, we enjoyed the day. Overall from the time we booked and paid they made the entire process easy to understand. We would recommend Windy City Sailing over all the others!

Windy City Sailing is first class. Edwina was easy to work with in planning the sail. Capt. Marty and First Mate Diane were both fun and professional. The expectations of everyone in our group were exceeded. Highly recommend Windy City Sailing.
