Join us for a guided excursion paddling on the Chicago River and sight-seeing Chicago’s most pinnacle buildings and landmarks. Kayak through a spectacular modern urban setting. Since our city literally grew up on the Chicago River, this is a great way to take in the contemporary metropolitan landscape.
The event is open to everyone, expert kayakers and beginners. There will be a 20-minute pre-paddle session on land, where our guides go over safety issues, “the rules of the river” and provide a brief paddling demonstration for those who are new or novice kayakers.
Tandem kayaks are available for people who want to ride together. Also, children younger than 16 years old are welcome as long as they ride in tandem with an adult. People riding together will still need to purchase 2 individual tickets.
We will be meeting for breakfast at 10.30 am at the Corner Bakery on Wacker and Michigan before heading over to the Kayak facility by the River.
