Matt was a fantastic guide, friendly and engaging. My son and I trusted his kayaking experience and felt safe in the water. The other employees we interacted with were warm and welcoming. We look forward to booking another kayak tour as soon as we return to Chicago!

Newly moved to Chicago and was looking for safe fun activities during covid and was so excited to see you were open and taking people out on the water. Staff was super warm and welcoming, knowledgeable in history and kayaking training! We enjoyed our tour and the group we went out with. It was a beautiful day in the city! Would definitely recommend Kayak Chicago to others.
