Tour Historic Chicago By Kayak

Join us for a guided excursion on the Chicago River’s Main Branch to paddle through a spectacular modern urban setting while imagining the city’s early historical locations.

Since our city literally grew up on the Chicago River, this is a great way to take in the contemporary urban landscape while visiting some historic spots.

Spend 90 minutes paddling the Main Branch of the river, as your lead tour guide stops periodically to tell stories and share detail about Chicago’s rich history.

There is a 20-minute pre-tour session on land, where our guides go over safety issues, “rules of the river” and provide a brief paddling demonstration for those who are new or novice kayakers. Reservations recommended.
