Best Ways to Make New Memories on a Yacht Tour

The fond memories that we make with our friends and family stay with us for a lifetime, and they only get better each time we look back on them. When we’re with the people that we care about the most, it’s as if time stands still and nothing else exists. This is even more true when we’re sharing a breathtaking view, dancing all evening to lively music, or enjoying an incredibly delicious meal together. At Anita Dee Yacht Charters, we can provide all these and more for an experience you and your loved ones will remember for the rest of your lives.

Decide Where You Want to Go and When

This may be the toughest part of planning your luxury yacht tour because Chicago offers so many beautiful views from the water. Whether daytime or nighttime, the Windy City is simply stunning. If you are in the mood for a bright, sunny tour during the day, you can choose a morning or afternoon departure. These are perfect times for appreciating the architecture on the Chicago River or enjoying vast, wide-open lake views.

If you prefer to depart in the evening, you can experience an entirely different ambiance. The sunset views are breathtaking, and once the sun has gone down, you’ll also get to see the skyline illuminated in all its brilliance. On top of this, there is no better place to experience the Chicago Summer Fireworks than from the deck of either of our yachts.

Plan Your Activities

In addition to the time of day and the location for your tour, the activities you plan will be the biggest factor in setting the tone for your event. If you are looking for something active, we offer water sports, including jet-skiing, snorkeling, and kayaking. Maybe you prefer a lively evening celebration to dance the night away, complete with a DJ and open bar. If you are in the mood for something more laid back, you can choose from a sightseeing tour with incredible 360-degree views from the observation deck. You can also select a total relaxation tour so you can leave your stress behind and just unwind out on the water.

Invite Your Friends

Your guests will turn your luxury yacht tour into something special. Whether you have a big or small gathering in mind, we offer two yachts of different sizes. The 120-passenger Anita Dee I is perfect for smaller, more intimate events and features two bars and a dance floor. The 400-passenger Anita Dee II can host a larger party with space for guests on three decks. The Anita Dee II also features a sophisticated piano lounge, a formal dining area, three bars, a dance floor, and even a helicopter pad. No matter which yacht you choose, you can tell your guests to come prepared for an exciting, unique experience.

Let Go and Enjoy Yourself

Everything is set up just right, and all your guests are here, ready to have fun. You’ve planned out each detail, and now it’s time to hand over the reins to us so you can soak it all in. The best way to make new memories today is to be in the moment with your friends and family and to forget anything else even exists.

A great way to do this is to put your phone away and hire a professional photographer instead. You’ll be able to enjoy photos and videos from your yacht tour that will let you relive the experience any time you like. You will also have high-quality images to post on social media, which we recommend doing when you’re back on land at the end of the day. The best and most lasting memories that you’ll make are the ones sharing laughs, telling stories, toasting those closest to you, and letting loose on the dance floor.
