Dear Friends and Fellow Boaters,
We are grateful to each of you for your support and interest in cruising with us during this time.
Chicago Electric Boat Company, Chicago Retro Boats, Chicago Cycleboats, and Downtown Docks will remain temporarily closed because Illinois has extended the Stay-At-Home order until April 30. Until the order is lifted individuals should avoid any nonessential activities. If you book a cruise after April 30 and the Stay-At-Home order is extended, a refund will automatically be issued.
We are confident that our collective experience will bring us together as a community. We are excited and ready for you to cruise with us once the Governor and the Mayor allow small group gatherings. Our pledge is to ensure you a wonderful and safe cruising environment for the Spring and Summer of 2020 and beyond. We, like many other businesses, will be activating new cleaning and sanitization protocols when we reopen. We are optimistic our boats will be a haven for small groups of friends and families.
We will continue to follow the guidance from Gov. Pritzker, Mayor Lightfoot, CDC, and WHO. We will continue to post updates on our social media platforms.
Stay well. Stay positive. We are all in this together.
Ron Silvia, CEO
