Captain Mark Stevenson began living his dream as a five-year-old boy who raced popsicle sticks down the gutter with a water hose. they were popsicle sticks to anyone else, but to Mark, they were boats. Growing up in the Chesapeake Bay Area meant that Mark was always surrounded by boats. As past President of the International Shipmaster Association and recipient of their prestigious 2016 Ludington Award, Mark has always known that his destiny was to become a boat captain who could give the most safe and fun boat trip.
Holding a 100-ton USCG license, safety is his second name and helping others to enjoy boating while being safe has become his trademark. He is known as Chicago's premium party boat captain who everyone wants to have as their guide and instructor. He holds a Bachelor of Science from Chicago State University in Biological Studies.
