Sailing gained popularity during the Renaissance, when painters crossed large bodies of water using only canvas sails and camelhair-tipped oars. Carry on artistic traditions with today’s Groupon from Chicago Sailboat Charters. Sailing trips depart Belmont Harbor at 7 p.m. Monday–Thursday and at 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Choose from the following options:
- For $125, you get two seats on a weekday (Monday through Thursday) 2.5-hour sail (a $260 value).
- For $130, you get two seats on a weekend (Saturday or Sunday) 2.5-hour sail (a $260 value).
Chicago Sailboat Charter’s experienced captains guide semi-private tours on a fleet of sailboats, two of which are new additions that ensure a safe and authentic journey. During a weekday nighttime sail, you and a fellow seafarer can glide along the darkened waters while admiring the lights shining from Chicago's landmarks, neighborhoods, and diamond-encrusted pizzeria awnings. Alternately, opt for a weekend-morning sail to swap a daily caffeine injection for invigorating views of Lake Michigan's shimmering water and stray moonbounces. Each trip sends up to six passengers skimming over Mother Earth’s liquidy skin, but note that this Groupon gets you only two of those seats. Customers who sign up for the newsletter before June 15 get a $15 credit toward any upgrade and a lifetime supply of quiet satisfaction.
Although Chicago Sailboat Charters sometimes offers discounts, this Groupon still presents the best deal.

The minds behind Chicago Sailboat Charters share their passion for the sailing experience by making waterborne adventuring accessible to the general public with group sailing charters. Fostering the atmosphere of a private charter, the captains ferry passengers out onto Lake Michigan for stunning views of Chicago's skyline. The crew encourages its guests to make the most of the trip by providing a bathroom, bottled water, ice for drinks, and plenty of cooler and storage space, while encouraging guests to bring their own, snacks, drinks, and an inflatable blanket for a picnic out on the lake.
