Loved Dave as he was a great teacher. Liked area as it wasn't busy and wasn't scary. Want to take the intermediate course but can't find out when it's scheduled. Will be coming back. thanks
David is an excellent instructor
I have my first experience with kayaking and it was amazing! Thanks guys! Definitely we will see you soon.
instructor was knowledgeable and enjoyable. Had a great time and I was much better at maneuvering a kayak than I was before the class.
Matt was my instructor, a very patient man who gave me very good instructions in how to kayak. Great personality as well...
Excellent instructor tailored our lesson to the needs of our group. Will highly recommend you guys!
I learned all I needed to know at this point to begin having fun with kayaking. At some point I may return for more advanced training but right now I just want to get out there and kayak.
would like more time on the water to apply all the techniques learnt. Also, please start and end on time - it's only fair.
I have never even sat in a kayak before this class and I walked out with a ton of confidence! Our instructor, Sam, was amazing! He was so knowledgeable and taught us so much.
I learned a lot. Great employees.
Everything about our experience with Kayak Chicago was excellent from registering online, being promptly greeted and signed in upon arrival, being thoroughly briefed on the equipment which was in good condition and working order, and the superb instruction throughout a most enjoyable 2-hour experience. Kayak Chicago went way beyond our expectations. What a great way to be introduced to this fun, liberating sport!
It was a very delightful first time experience. Although it was very windy our instructor Brian made us feel extremely confident and comfortable. He had great patience teaching us the maneuvers and gave us great feedback on our techniques as well as correcting us when we were off. I am definitely recommending!
