Why We Recommend Smaller Group Private Yacht Charters

A fully crewed private yacht charter in Chicago is a very unique and exciting experience. When you do it at the right time of day, it becomes downright magical. Unlike a vacation on a massive cruise ship, a smaller group private yacht charter can be built exactly the way you and your guests want it to be. No more squeezing through crowds or waiting in lines. Aboard Adeline’s Sea Moose, you’ll have all four decks to yourself!
