Great Skyline Tour

The crew made the natural experience wonderful. The way the crew intermingle was fantastic. When the engines were cut just prior to the sails going was quiet and most relaxing. I wished it would have been a day long trip!

I was looking for something fun to surprise my girlfriend while killing time at Navy Pier on Labor Day, before catching a flight home. Tall Ship Windy was an AWESOME choice! Great crew, beautiful boat, fun atmosphere! I will definitely book for a fireworks tour or the Air Show if I have a chance in the future.

As a Chicago resident I had never taken a skyline cruise from Navy Pier. Thanks to the habibis, we had tickets for the very last cruise of the season. It was very well run, the crew is awesome, friendly, helpful and very entertaining. They deserve big tips for the work (looks hard to me:) I will recommend this cruise to anyone who is interested in boats, ships, lakes, skylines, etc. This one was just 75 minutes long.Maybe next year we'll check out the Jazz cruise.

Wow, what a great trip! We got to hoist the foresail too! My son got to hold the wheel with the wonderful captain! Wind filled the sails as we went out onto the lake. It was great. It was idyllic, really. Highly recommend!

My husband and I enjoyed sailing on the tall ship. I recommend if you don't experience sea/motion sickness, you have to try the Tall Ship Windy experience.

I went with a group of friends on the Chicago tall ship sailboat cruise. It was amazing! So much fun and a beautiful way to see the skyline and share it with friends! Great experience!
