About Kayak Chicago
Kayak Chicago is Chicago’s original kayak and paddleboard outfitter, since 1999. Our kayak outposts have everything you need for your urban adventure on the Chicago River, family outings at Montrose Beach, or catching some sunshine at North Ave Beach. Join us for one of our many guided tours, which include our Chicago architecture tour, the original fireworks paddle, and a city lights tour after dusk. For a full list of guided tours with descriptions of the tours, please visit our tours page.
