One of Chi Town’s best-kept secrets, the Spirit of Chicago Yacht. This spacious vessel has a state of the art sound system, and a lovely decorum within it’s 3 climate-controlled interior decks.

The Interior of The Spirit of Chicago

You’ll start off on the Fiesta Deck. A name that fits perfectly because this is where the party kicks off. Its bright dancefloor will call out to you, don’t resist, get your groove on and go boogie.

Make your way up to the Jubilee Deck. It’s tastefully allocated seating, coupled with its spacious design will give you more of what this magnificent vessel has to offer. Keep making your way upwards towards the Celebration Deck. If the Fiesta is where the party kick’s off, then this is where the party comes to cool off before kicking it right back into high gear.

The Sky Deck

Now, if you thought the interior was something to look at, you’ll be baffled by the sheer beauty of the sky deck at the very top of the Spirit of Chicago. Decorated tastefully with chic furniture offset by the bold, blue flooring. It’s here where you’ll get the absolute best views of Chicago skyline and it’s landmarks. Like the Aon Center, The Jardine Water Purification Plant, and the John Hancock Center.
