KAYAK WITH WATERIDERS!
Begin your journey at the river’s hub. Our launch at the East Bank Club starts you minutes from downtown via scenic Wolf Point, where the three branches of the river meet and the city’s magnificent views blossom.
Just a minute's walk from the river, our validated parking garage is conveniently located and offers the best deal in the area: $4 + 50 cents per hour!
We are also very easy to reach by bike, train (Metra or L), bus, rideshare, or foot.
With our central location near the Loop, River North, West Loop, and River West, you will not get a better value anywhere on the river. Maximize your time by paddling in the downtown area!
Do you feel like you may need some coaching? We'll jump on the water with you if you are feeling nervous, or if you look like you need some assistance.
While everyone receives an on-land lesson, we'll give additional on-water training to those who may struggle at first.
Locally owned and operated, we were the first company to host kayak tours on the Chicago River in the downtown area.
Since 1997, we have hosted over 100,000 urban adventurers through this wonderful waterway!
