My husband and I had a great time at our kayak lesson at Kayak Chicago. We'd kayaked a few times on vacation and struggled a bit - we were trying to learn as we went along and took in the sights. This time, we had an instructor helping us learn the strokes and gently coaching us along. Bubba, our instructor, was funny, patient, and knowledgeable. We felt a lot more confident in our beginner skills after two hours on the water, and would like to do a Chicago river tour to practice. In addition to it being a helpful lesson, it was just a fun time out on the river - it was a gorgeous day with two other kayak beginners sharing the lesson with us. Highly recommended!

My sister and I chose Kayak Chicago for a kayak lesson before our trip to Washington State. Bubba was a great instructor! We learned about the different types of kayaks, why they were used and when, and of course - what skills we would need for our trip that day. Bubba made the instruction interesting and fun, which was very important as it was hot and muggy. When we were on the water, it was great having him remind the group -as a whole and individually - how to improve out rowing and taught us different skills we would need in different situations. When my sister I and informed him what we were doing, he even gave us some tips for kayaking in the sound and how it would be different. (We are going to be in a tandem sea kayak.) I would definitely recommend this class to friends and family. I also can't wait to go out again with Kayak Chicago!
