How far in advance should we book our charter?
Our typical charter season is from May to early October,  and since all “dates” are secured with a deposit, we recommend booking at the earliest possible moment so you don’t miss out on your priceless pampered private yachting experience on the day you preferred.

How many people does your yacht hold?
We are Coast Guard Certified to hold 45 passengers, and that includes infants and children.

What is your typical cruising route?
Upon leaving Burnham Harbor we head north towards Navy Pier going past the Alder Planetarium, and Shed Aquarium just after viewing the Museum Campus area. Then were on to Chicago’s Famous Skyline, Buckingham Fountain, and after a brief pause to see the fountain we will head further North towards North Avenue Beach passing Navy Pier and go through Chicago’s famous “playpen” and turn back towards Burnham Harbor. If you would like to do a river cruise there would be an extra fee and you would have to let us know prior to booking.

What is your cancellation policy?
The payment is forfeited should the client, for any reason, decide to cancel. Number of passengers cannot be decreased, however, number of passengers can be increased at an additional charge. IF the yacht is unable to depart the dock due to weather and/or lake conditions the event will proceed at the dock. Weather condition options to be determined by the captain of Adeline’s Sea Moose.

What kind of Bathrooms do you have?
If it were home it would be a two-and-a-half bath house, for a boat they’re relatively good sized. Note; since being on a yacht please conserve water when using them and on all sleep aboard stays there is an additional charge for emptying the holding tank. No extra charges apply in regard to emptying the holding tank for short-term hourly charters or trips.

Are there certain hours that we can schedule a cruise?
No, with advance notice our Coast Guard certified captains can be provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Naturally, availability and restrictions may apply.

Do you supply linens, blankets, and towels for overnight stays?
Yes, we supply the linens, blankets and towels. Please note that the staterooms are reserved for overnight guests or charter guests at an additional charge.

Do you require a security deposit?
Yes, several kinds of deposits are required depending on how and for what reason you want to use the yacht. A deposit is required at the time of booking to hold the time and date.

Can I bring my own alcohol?
Liquor license laws prohibit you and your guests from bringing alcohol aboard.

What are your rates?
We have different prices for different days of the week, group sizes, holidays etc. Send in an inquiry with your desired event date and group size and a Chicago Private Yacht Rentals representative will promptly respond.

If you have a question that you don’t see please let us know.
