About Us

Cruising is more than a pastime

For us it's a passion

Helping friends, family and fellow Chicagoans enjoy the waters of Lake Michigan has been our mission for more than a decade. Now with BBQ Pontoon, we’re extending our adventures to the Chicago River.

BBQ Pontoon is family-owned and operated by a mom-and-pop team of skippers who together have more than 20 years of experience cruising the waters of Lake Michigan, the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico.
