Urban Kayaks Chicago
Match: Kayaking & Canoeing
The guides and "wranglers" were fun and funny, we all enjoyed an excellent new perspective on the downtown architecture and we enjoyed excellent after-kayak refreshments right along the river at a place we had pad...

Our tour guide, Joel, was awesome, as were our kayaking helpers, Nate & Sarah.

This was the perfect first time experience kayaking a local river with our kids, ages 13 and 11.
We took off from there and enjoyed a leisurely kayak down the river into some beautiful areas, ending up where we parked.
