Our goal is to do everything we can to ensure that you and your charter guests have an enjoyable experience. Below you will find tips to keep everybody safe and happy.
If you or your guests are prone to seasickness, here are some tips: take your medication one hour before your charter. And to minimize queasiness, try to stay in the fresh air and above deck. The worst thing to do is go below deck with no land or horizon to look at.
We do not allow smoking aboard the Free Spirit or Gypsy Spirit in compliance with the City of Chicago No-Smoking Ordinance.
Children are welcome aboard the Free Spirit or Gypsy Spirit. Children under 90 lbs. are required to wear life jackets on outside deck areas. You will need to provide life jackets for your infants or small children.
United States Coast Guard.
The Free Spirit and Gypsy Spirit are United States Coast Guard inspected annually and licensed for commercial use.
Guidelines for Safety.
- No sitting on hand rails.
- No standing on benches or chairs.
- No smoking, shots, beer bongs or drinking games.
- Do not enter areas marked “crew only”. For example, the United States Coast Guard does not want people in the galley where there is a working stove/oven.
Why is food required? We require food on all of our charters. It is our experience that yachting with alcohol alone for several hours is a bad combination. Our goal is to do everything we can to ensure that you and your charter guests have an enjoyable experience. And we guarantee your guests will enjoy the wonderful fresh food provided.
Lastly, high heels are not recommended. There are stairs on our boats (ladder on the Gypsy Spirit) and you want to be able to go from one level to another. Our advice: when dressing up for the evening, slip a pair of flats in your purse.
