    Come Sailing
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    We’ll depart from the north side of Monroe Harbor at our dedicated pick-up/drop-off spot. Once the safety briefing is completed and all dock lines have been brought on board, our trip will begin. The itinerary, course/route we are sailing for the day, will depend mostly on wind the direction. However, being that this is a private charter, the itinerary remains very flexible and pretty much at your discretion. So, if you’d like to see a particular landmark or prefer to sail a particular route, just ask our captain and they will be happy to oblige. If, instead, you’d prefer to leave all of the decision up to the captain, no problem. Our captain will be happy to take you for an enjoyable sail on Lake Michigan during which you will sail in close proximity to some or all of the landmarks listed in the itinerary below.

We had an excellent experience with Captain Mike on the Druid. The sail was very smooth and the boat is even more beautiful in person. Mike was a pleasure to talk to and was very accommodating of my parents, who are older. We were lucky to catch some great weather and wind conditions.

We will definitely go sailing with Come Sailing again. After shopping around for similar sailing experiences, I found their prices to be very fair, especially given how great the experience was.

If you are considering booking with them I would highly recommend it!!

The four of us went out with Captain Mike and we had a wonderful time; he is obviously extremely skilled at sailing but we also enjoyed his personality his knowledge of Chicago and its architecture; a strong recommendation and would definitely go out with Captain Mike again!
