Highlight of the 2016 Summer. So far. Chicago Fireworks Cruise.

We don’t mean to play “can you top this?” Chicago fireworks cruise. But how did you spend your 4th of July weekend?

One of the fun things we did was host a private yacht charter for the cast and crew from The Sponge Bob Musical, War Paint and The Book of Mormon!

Chicago Fireworks Cruise

Can you say magical night? We got feedback like this:

“We had the best 4th of July ever!…..Their (the Free Spirit Yacht crew) hospitality is amazing. We felt at home and happy. Also, Captain Joe is funny (Joe loved that)!” – Vasthy Mompoint

As you can see from some of the photos we took, guests had a blast. The weather cooperated (lucky us). Cast members hammed it up. And everyone enjoyed being out on Lake Michigan with the spectacular Chicago skyline as a backdrop.

We cruised past Navy Pier and the big new Ferris Wheel. And then Captain Joe found one of his perfect fireworks watching spot.

And then there were FIREWORKS! The pictures pretty much tell the story.

Fourth of July Cruise

If you’ve been looking for a fun way to entertain clients or host a company party or Chicago fireworks cruise, a private luxury yacht charter might be just the thing. We offer delectable catering options (food and bar) in a luxurious setting that make it oh-so-easy to mix business with pleasure.

That’s why many of our corporate clients book private yacht charters with us season after season.

“This is the 4th time I rented the Gypsy and keep coming back because we have had such a wonderful experience! I guarantee we will rent again in the future and have provided information to other friends looking for boat rentals. Thanks again!” – Katie Freund

Who doesn’t like fireworks?

Chicago Fireworks CruiseIt never gets old. Seeing the night sky lit up with hundreds of sparkling, shimmering lights; that make us look up in awe. Especially when we’re looking up from the deck of one of our luxury yachts cruising on Lake Michigan.

Granted, the Chicago sky has been lit up far too often with lightning this summer. We’ve all had enough of that!

But we’re talking about the man-made “lightning” — the Wednesday and Saturday night Navy Pier fireworks shows. Spectacular. See for yourself.

Our Saturday night Fireworks Cruises are all filled. But there are still a few spots open for Wednesday night charters.

So if you love fireworks…. and if a yacht cruise has been on your list of things to do this summer, call us while the Wednesday nights are still available.

You’ll thank us in December when you can look at the pictures you took from your charter.

2010 will be better than it has been

DSC_9602We are saying “Au Revoir,” “Ciao,” “Adios,” and “Good bye” to 2009!  Amen to 2010!  Our Zen is, “2010 will be better than it has been.”

Seems so, considering I just got off the phone with a church group that booked a Saturday night fireworks cruise in July aboard the Free Spirit. A great way to start out the New Year.

All of us at Free Spirit Yacht Cruises are wishing you a Happy New Year! And can’t wait to sea you next year!
