I've been looking around online for boat rental in Chicago, but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Basically I would like to rent a boat that sleeps 2 (my wife and I) that we can rent overnight, or even for a couple days. I'd like to just go out onto lake michigan and relax, spend a day or two out on the lake.

Is this even possible? Everything I find online is either a much larger boat (and thus $$$$) or you must have their captain with you. It'd need to be a standard motorized boat, not a sailboat (we've only been sailing once).

I've always been curious about this question myself. Can you even rent a boat alone without a special license?
