Free Spirit Yacht Cruises is home to the most inviting private yacht charters on Lake Michigan. Docked at Burnham Harbor, conveniently located just north of Lakeside Center McCormick Place, Free Spirit Yachts are the perfect venues for corporate entertaining, meetings, product launch events, escape the trade floor luncheons and more.

Our two yachts, the Gypsy Spirit (2-49 people) and the Free Spirit (up to 120 people) are designed for your guests’ relaxation and comfort. We’re not your typical yacht charter company. For example, in the Free Spirit salon, you’ll find comfortable, “sink into” leather sofas; the Gypsy Spirit has the ambiance that’s like being in a friend’s luxurious home. And we couple this with friendly professional service.

From start to finish, we’ll make planning your event easy and hassle free. You will have a wonderful time on your charter as you cruise Lake Michigan and enjoy our breathtaking Chicago skyline.

Special Features: Chicago River cruises available. Stereo-system with mobile device hook-up, XM Radio and a microphone. Entertainment available. Room Capacities: Gypsy Spirit (Mtg. 50, Banq. 50, Recpt. 50); Free Spirit (Mtg. 120, Banq. 120, Recpt. 120).
