We thoroughly enjoyed the sunset, river paddling experience. It was wonderful to see the city at night -- especially when we were downtown. The three guides were so very helpful and pleasant and had great attitudes. I was very impressed. There were about 20 or so participants on our paddle, and we were told that this was a small group, but I thought that this was a very nice size. It was a lovely evening.

Kayaking in the Chicago River was an incredible experience. The sights were stunning. We did the sunset kayak tour on Saturday, September 30. Due to it getting dark out earlier in the evening, it turned out to be half sunset, half night kayak - SO cool. The guides are as fun as can be and very informative. They take safety very seriously and each staff member so blatantly enjoys their job. We took about 3 brief breaks throughout the 5 mile tour, where we were encouraged to take pictures. I would highly recommend Kayak Chicago for out-of-towners and locals alike!
