We had a great overall experience. The staff was very friendly and our guide Luis was amazing. He explained everything in detail and I think we can kayak with confidence. We are definitely coming back.

I wanted to take a lesson in order to make sure I had some of the basic kayak safety and strokes correct. The lesson fulfilled the goals--instructor was very clear, calm, and paid close-attention to the safety of students. After we had some instruction, we paddled down a channel of the Chicago River and had a great time! I learned a lot and improved my confidence for being out on the water.
