If you have friends from out of town venturing into Chicago for the first time, chances are they’ve chosen you as tour guide. This is a big responsibility! You’re not just helping them find their way around; you’re curating a day of sights and experiences. As tourists, there are a few things they’ll want to see no matter what. But you also want to give them a unique experience, one that tourists don’t normally get. We’ve prepared a short guide for you: a day in South Loop that won’t be too hard on your friends’ feet, topped off with a Chicago boat cruise along the famous skyline in the evening.


  1. Take Them to Cloud Gate (AKA “The Bean”): Like we said, there are some thing tourists just need to see. However, big and airy Millennium Park is well-loved among tourists and Chicagoans alike.
  2. Dazzle Them at the Adler Planetarium: After Adler was renovated two years ago, it saw an explosion of attendance. It doesn’t matter where you come from; anyone can appreciate what the Wall Street Journal named “one of the most data-intensive [shows] ever produced.”
  3. Relax with a Chicago Boat Cruise Aboard a Luxury Yacht: The Valara’s been in business for over thirty-five years. We can tell you firsthand  how this city has changed and grown; we’d love to tell your out-of-towner friends about it for while you’re resting your feet and enjoying our expert cuisine after an eventful day.


How did you watch the NBA championship on Thursday? We’re guessing you spent it in the company of your friends and family, with a considerable amount of barbecue and beer. Championship games are thrilling, rousing gatherings; rarely do you and your friends get this riled up. The comedown and cleanup afterwards, however, is such a bore. If you watch the championship game on a Chicago boat cruise, you won’t have to deal with the greasy plates and empty bottles.

Our top-class cruise yacht, the Valara, comes equipped with everything you need to enjoy the big game, and more: a television, a big space to gather your friends, and a wait staff to save you the trouble of preparing food and drink. You can relax, focus on the game, and get a breath of fresh air when the action becomes too much for you.

There is no shortage of sporting events to look forward to, and therefore countless reasons to celebrate with friends. The Stanley Cup is just next week; the World Series is far ahead enough to plan in advance; and just imagine celebrating the FIFA World Cup with a luxury yacht rental! Book your rental today–after you’ve finished arguing with your friends about Lebron, of course.


fireworksIndependence Day is a lot sooner than it seems and now is the time to book a Chicago boat cruise for the holiday.  You can make it the sole plan for the holiday or part of your entire day in Chicago. Whether visiting or a resident, a yacht rental may be one of the best ways to spend the 4th of July. Every year, fireworks are launched over the Navy Pier that you can see just about anywhere. Doing so on a yacht on a beautiful July night sounds like a great party for your friends and family.

Even if you can’t get out on the water on 4th of July itself, you can still book for that weekend. Any one of many packages can suit your party. Most cruises last around 3 hours, leaving you with plenty of other time to check out what’s going on in and around Chicago during the holiday. The Chicago History Museum has a Independence Day celebration, including a children’s costume parade. Or you can catch a free performance by the Grant  Park Orchestra in Millennium Park.

However you spend the rest of your day or weekend, you can definitely fit in the option of yacht rentals.  It’s important to reach out for reservations now, before the whole weekend is booked up!
