Time to relax and find your adventure

Our passion for providing our clients with spectacular moments on the water drives us every day

LuxeLife is a boat rental company that offers luxury rentals in downtown Chicago! We are more than just a boat rental company, we are your partner in creating life long memories on the water. Book your boat today and set sail beyond the Chicago skyline.


Booking with us  comes with several unique benefits - the price you pay includes fuel, cleaning, safety training, and access to all of our amenities (including a free lily pad and 2 free inflatable paddleboards!) 


In partnership with BoatSafeChicago, we offer a pre-select group of United States Coastal Guards ("USCG") Captains for you to choose, who are highly trained professionals (licensed, CPR and water rescue certified as well as drug tested regularly)  who will ensure that your boating experience is both safe, incredibly FUN and unforgettable. 


We offer a bareboat charter:

  • A bareboat charter is where the Charterer (client) has use of a vessel for a period of time 

  • The Charterer is allowed a max capacity of 12 passengers and you are allowed to bring your own food and drinks

  • The Charterer will need a licensed captain to operate the boat (LuxeLife Chicago will provide you with a list once you book).

    • Captains are paid by you directly and charge $150 per hour (including gratuity)

  • Your itinerary is completely your choice on the day of the charter! Just tell your captain.

    • Your itinerary may include the the Chicago River, the “Playpen”, or any location on Lake Michigan within 10 nautical miles from your departure location (docking location). Please note, it can sometimes take 1+ hours to access the river on busy summer days

Our location at the 31st Street Harbor, which is the latest addition to the harbor system in Chicago, provides a unique and exceptional experience for you and your guests. So, why not choose LuxeLife Chicago for your next boating adventure?
