Chicago Scenic Charters


Hello, I am Captain Joe Cislak. I hold a 100 ton Master USCG Credential. I have been boating on the Great Lakes  since 1995 and very experienced on Lake Michigan, the Chicago shore and Chicago River.​  


Chicago Scenic Charters operates a 35 foot Express Cruiser (Emerald Isle) moored at Chicago's 31st Street Harbor and accommodates captained charters up to 6 passengers or bare boat rentals up to 10 passengers.  Choose from captained  shoreline cruises,  river cruises or maybe you would prefer to anchor and relax, have lunch in one of the city anchorages or book a custom hourly charter and create your own itinerary. (longer outings possible)


Located adjacent to the 31st Street Beach the marina amenities offer a picnic area, harbor store and Salerno's restaurant/patio bar. If you want to explore there is a Divvy bike rental station with access to the lake front trail.
