Chicago’s premier private yacht charters Book Now!

Reopening Details

We’re excited to announce Anita Dee Yacht Charters is now fully operational and taking reservations for group events! We will temporarily be operating at a reduced guest capacity for a short period of time until capacities are increased in the very near future. As of today, we are accommodating up to 100 guests aboard the Anita Dee II yacht, and 75 guests aboard the Anita Dee I yacht. We are thrilled our guests will again be able to enjoy the most unique and amazing way to view our enchanted city cruising the waterways of the legendary Chicago River and Chicago Skyline!

The last few months have certainly been an unprecedented time for each and every one of us. In light of recent updates, our primary focus at Anita Dee will continue to be to uphold the very highest standards of health and safety protocols. With minds at ease, we can all get back to celebrating life with the people we love.

Our company’s foundation and purpose from the very beginning has been to help create the most extraordinary experiences and emotional connections possible for our guests. Today, Anita Dee Yacht Charters, along with phenomenal staff, feels called to do that now more than ever. Over the weeks and days ahead, we believe we can make the greatest positive impact in Chicago by doing what we do best – serving our community with the highest possible level of hospitality.

For those who may still have reservations attending public events, here are the Standard Operating Protocols we’ve implemented to assure absolute safety for all our patrons:

  • Sanitization of all venues before, during, and after each event
  • Exterior Observation Decks and Interior Decks have dedicated staff assigned for continuous cleaning, and observation.
  • Hand Sanitizer stations
  • Face Mask requirements for all guests and staff
  • Germ Barriers on all bars and buffets
  • Crew member temperatures monitored prior to boarding
  • Social Distancing & Limited Capacity Requirements to maintain the utmost safety

Several weeks off has done nothing to diminish our rich 39-year history that’s intertwined with Chicago and its vibrant communities. Family-owned and operated since 1981, Anita Dee Yacht Charters remains committed to providing the very best and safest private experience on Chicago’s waterways. Besides our famed white-glove service, breathtaking skyline views of Chicago’s rich architecture and lakefront beauty is what we’ve come to be known for.

Our growth from being one of the first yacht charters in the city to operating out of our own private docking location at DuSable Harbor along the Chicago Riverwalk, we’ve stood the test of time with Chicago. And now we’re tremendously excited to return as the #1 private yacht venue for fully customized private events in all of Chicagoland.

We can’t wait to begin delivering the very highest levels of service once again.
Thank you for your patience, Chicago!
See you soon!!
