How to Host the Best Company Outing Ever!

Few places compare to Chicago in the summer. There are so many fun things to do — from sports to concerts and festivals all over the city.

Of course, we love summer because we get to help clients host the best company outing ever on Lake Michigan. Nothing beats a Lake Michigan private yacht charter or river cruise for hosting your summer social or company outing.

Yes, it’s that time of year. We’ve been reminiscing about all the fun events we’ve had aboard the Free Spirit and Gypsy Spirit.

Company Outing

Host the Best Company Outing

A Free Spirit yacht cruise is a unique and memorable way to host your company outing or entertain clients. With warm sunny days and beautiful evenings ahead, we thought you’d like to know what we offer.

Some of our clients have started their “play” day with team building at the office before making their way to Burnham Harbor to board the Free Spirit. There, they enjoyed lunch while cruising on Lake Michigan with Chicago’s magnificent skyline as a backdrop. Talk about an awesome out-of-the-office day.

We have clients who book charters with us every year and usually choose one of our Chicago-themed menus. But recently, we’ve received more calls asking if we do upscale menus as well.

So we wanted to let you know. Absolutely!


In addition to delicious casual fare, we’re pleased to offer luxe, fancy, upscale (call it what you will) customized menus and premium beverage service.

For example, one client chartered a cruise for 15 people aboard the Gypsy Spirit. Guests dined on a delectable Magnificent Mile Buffet, featuring grilled salmon with champagne sauce, beef tenderloin, baby vegetables, wild rice with sautéed mushrooms and more. And a premium bar.

Did they enjoy it? You bet!

Who’s been cruising with us?
Here are some of the companies who charter yachts with us: Yahoo, Google, Hulu, University of Chicago, the French Pastry School (yum!), Best Buy, Target, JP Morgan, Leo Burnett, and Draft FCB….to name a few.

What our clients say:
