Tall Ship Red Witch

Tall Ship Red Witch

Enjoy a Private Event or Public Sail aboard wooden Tall Ship Red Witch!

Come sail with us from mid-May through early-October. We thank the Kenosha community for strong support.

Red Witch docks on the Kenosha Harbor South Seawall near 54th Street and 5th Avenue – just steps from downtown Kenosha, museums, parks and the Metra station.

Please call 312-469-0233 for notices regarding potential daily weather cancellations. However, please be advised that the captain may cancel sails up to the time of scheduled departure.

Sail aboard Tall Ship Red Witch from Kenosha’s beautiful harbor! She is one of the country’s rare authentic wooden commercial sailing schooners, offering a unique sailing experience for private events and public sails. Host your private event for up to 49 guests aboard Red Witch. She’s a perfect venue for corporate meetings for clients or staff, family reunions, weddings (pre-and post-wedding events), and any other parties! Red Witch is a wonderful for all ages – from summer camp outings, school outings to retiree gatherings. On a tall ship, windy days are the best. Welcome aboard!

We recommend that you schedule your event between two and three hours. As we’re a true sailboat, we typically run the engine only to exit and enter the harbor – we sail (without the engine) for the majority of the event. As we’re a sailboat we navigate where wind and waves take us –with gorgeous views of the city and shoreline. Typically we sail afternoons through late evenings, but upon request the boat is available around the clock for your private event. Please note that we were voted Chicago’s best “Tour and Charter Boat” in 2009, 2010 and 2012. We do our best to make your private event both fun and memorable – as we hope to see you every summer!

We offer public sails weekdays and weekends. See our schedule and join us for an amazing 80-minute sail on Lake Michigan. Sailing is fun and safe for all ages (ages 0 to 110!).
