Our private group options are generally broken down into a 2 hour session or a 1 hour session. Tour routes can be customized to fit personal needs, however typically our 2hr private tours run the same route as our Historic Chicago and Sunset tours, while our 1hr session mimics our Intro Paddle route. We schedule private tours based on the date and time that you want to paddle, so you don't need to worry about your group fitting into the time constraints of an existing "public" tour. A private photographer can be added to the tour for an additional $150. 

At the time of booking, you will be charged a 20% deposit, which is refundable only in the case of cancellations due to bad weather, which of course no one can control.  Please let us know if you have any other questions. To proceed with the booking, please fill out the private outing request form to the right and we will be in contact ASAP.  We look forward to seeing you on the water!


Pricing for private tours are broken down into 2hr and 1hr options. On our 2hr Private tour the customer has the option to include "Historic Chicago" tour information. However, our 1hr Private Paddle does not include "tour" information and is simply a supervised paddle. All prices are listed pre-tax. The City of Chicago requires that we charge/pay a 9% Amusement Tax on all tour products. Tips are not obligated, but a 5-10% tip for the tour guides is very much appreciated.
