Chicago Boat Tours

Knock Out Charters

Knock Out Charters was born in 2007 when Captain Chris Connor realized that there wasn’t a boat charter company in Chicago that treated customers in the way he felt they should. Captain Chris’ philosophy of customer experience first has made Knock Out Charters the premier private boat charter in Chicago.
From the moment you first discover us, until you step onto the docks and are greeted by our friendly staff, you will understand that we want your charter to be the best day of the summer for you and your guests. We want you to be as happy as we are to be enjoying Lake Michigan and the spectacular views of Chicago from “the other side of Lake Shore Drive”.
