Feel sun on your skin from the rooftop of the boat while at the same time feeling the breeze of lake Michigan and the spritz on your face from breaking waves.

There will be DJ entertainment to turn up to the whole time. You can be jack and rose on the front of the boat for a photo op! Many places around the boat are amazing photo opportunities with the Chicago skyline in the background. There are bars on all floors of the boat!
