Make your way to way to the Riverwalk at the East Bank Club, where you’ll meet your guide for some paddling instruction. When you’re ready, snap on your life vest and get situated in your kayak. Both single and double kayaks are available.
Then set off through the downtown segment of the Chicago River. While you paddle along, behold a magnificent panorama of landmark buildings casting their reflection into the shimmering waters, bordered by a beautifully landscaped riverside promenade. Pass under a procession of articulated ironwork bridges that make up part of the largest movable bridge system in the world.
You’re treated to a unique perspective on some of America’s greatest 20th- and 21st-century architecture, including Willis Tower. Learn from your guide why one particular structure's floors were built crooked, and hear about Chicago’s storied history, including tales from the natives who first paddled the river to the rampant capitalism that shaped the city
Your leisurely kayak tour concludes with a return to the launch point.
