A chilly sight, isn’t it?!  Thank goodness warm weather is finally on it’s way!  It’s been a long, cold, snowy winter and we’re really looking forward to the coming summer season.  Can’t wait until all that snow and ice is finally history and we’re back on the water having a great time in the sun!

Hard to believe another season is over!  It was a great summer in Chicagoland and we look forward to being back next season.  With the Thanksgiving holiday just around the corner, we’d like to say thank you once again to all our wonderful clients.  Thanks for making this past summer a fantastic one, and we look forward to seeing you all again next year!

Happy 4th of July!

June 30th, 2013

It’s hard to believe the Fourth is right around the corner!  Even though this Chicago weather has been pretty unpredictable lately, we’ve had some great cruises so far this summer, and are looking forward to all our coming outings.  There are some really great events yet to come this summer, like the 4th of July fireworks, Tall Ships in August, Taste of Chicago, the Air and Water show, and we’re excited to be out on the lake cruising, and enjoying all our great city has to offer.    If you’re looking for a great way to spice up your summer, and enjoy the city from our beautiful Lake Michigan, keep us in mind!  A boat party is a great way to get out have some real summer fun!!

Did you know…

May 12th, 2013
Did you know that, just like the American Flag, each part of the Chicago flag is symbolic?
The three white stripes from top to bottom represent the North, West, and South
sides of our city.  The upper blue stripe represents the North Branch of the
Chicago River and Lake Michigan.  The bottom blue stripe represents the South
branch of the river, and the Great Canal (Illinois and Michigan Canal).  Each
one of the four red stars, of course, symbolizes something as well.  The first
star on the left stands for Fort Dearborn, the original settlement from which
Chicago was developed, and in remembrance of the Fort Dearborn Massacre.  The
second star stands for the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, which had a great impact
on the history of our city.  The third star is for the World’s Columbian
Exposition, which was held in 1893, and brought people from all over the
country, as well as the world, to celebrate the 400th anniversay of Christopher
Columbus’ arrival in the Americas.  The last star represents the Century of
Progress fair, which was a World’s fair, and was held in Chicago in 1933 and
1934 and celebrated Chicago’s centennial.


The city’s flag was first proposed in 1915,
and was completed in 1917, with only two stars (for the Chicago Fire and the
Columbian Exposition).  The third star was added in 1933 for the Century of
Progress, and the fourth in 1939 to commemorate Fort Dearborn.

The season begins!!
