Private Charters - Windy
Make your next gathering unique with a private cruise on a real tall ship!
Set sail on Windy for weddings, parties, corporate functions, reunions, church outings, tour groups, team building, and more! Windy can be chartered for a maximum of 150 guests.
Windy boasts three spacious decks, a grand salon, pressurized "heads" (marine toilets), and a bar for your enjoyment. Plenty of deck seating is available on benches and boxes. The bar is stocked with soda, water, beer, wine, liquor, and snacks. Ask about our bar packages!
Caterers generally set up buffet-style in the grand salon, adjacent to the galley area, with guests free to move in and out. Seating is informal on the Windy, so "picnic-style" meals work best. Our preferred caterers include:
- Biagio! Events
- D'Absolute Catering
Private charters include the option of a docent aboard for historical interpretation and Windy's exciting signature programming. Choose from Chicago architecture, piracy on the Great Lakes, gangsters and rum running in Roarin' 30s Chicago, maritime ghost stories, and more.
Live music is also available; or bring your own band on board.
Prices start at $2,400 (taxes included) for your private event.
