CHICAGO — If you don’t have a boat or a friend with a boat, you can still go boating.

Marcella Raymond took us to the Chicago River where boat rentals are the way to go.

At Chicago Boat Rentals you get a five-minute lesson on driving and safety. They have several pontoons that fit 6-8 people. If you’re looking for a little more luxury, you can rent a yacht with your own captain.

It’s perfect for surprise engagements, bachelorette parties, anniversaries or birthdays.
