Chicagoans are very serious about their St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. Even the Chicago River will turn green to celebrate this holiday. St. Patrick’s Day is one of the few days in the year when you can party all day and night with great company. So, this year, do your celebration up right and have it on the water.
St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Cruise
Take a St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Cruise. Enjoy beautiful views, delicious drinks and great music while cruising Lake Michigan.
The Anita Dee is docked at DuSable Harbor on the South side of the Chicago River at Lake Shore Drive. Step aboard this 140 foot, three story luxury yacht. See the beautiful sights in the harbor through the large windows in the two climate controlled interior decks.
Boarding will begin 45 minutes before the departure time and it is recommended that you arrive and board at that time. This is a 21+ event. You’ll need to have an official 21+ ID at time of boarding. As soon as boarding is complete (approximately 30 minutes), the gate will close and the crew will prepare for departure.
One of Chicago’s top DJs will be aboard spinning a variety of classic party hits and pop music. There are two dance floors on the Anita Dee. Move to the music on the dance floor with one of your old friends or a new friend.
There will be multiple fully stocked professionally staffed bars on board with beer, wine and cocktails for purchase. The yacht has lounge areas in the interior decks that are great for mixing, mingling and meeting new people.
You can go up to the open air upper deck to get 360 degree panoramic views of the iconic Chicago skyline. Get stunning views of the Windy City’s landmarks, Lincoln Park and beautiful lakefront property.
Have fun taking pictures of the party and post them on Facebook and Instagram. Use #ChiCruises in your posts and you’ll be entered in the Photo Contest with prizes of tickets to tasting festivals, cruises and more.
