Event Overview

Experience the mighty Chicago River at its calmest and most beautiful time! After the sun sets, the inner lights of the buildings spill into the streets and reflect off of the river, performing a glittering display.

Paddle with us at night through downtown Chicago, illuminated by street lamps and propelled by human muscle. The river is generally calmer and less trafficked after dark. Kayaking at night is one of the most pleasant ways to paddle!

Returning around 10 – 10:15 pm, there is still time to head over to the bar – the night is still young!

    So I decided to push my girlfriend's comfort level and do something different to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and being out on the river at night in a tandom kayak will absolutely go down as a top 2 date! One of our guides Ashley was so informative, helpful, and nonjudgemental. Just an overall pleasant person to be around. The whole crew has mastered the art of being present and available yet become invisible when appropriate. We both felt completely safe on the water and have already invited both her parents and mine to come enjoy this amazing adventure together mid August. Sorry this was long winded, we just had so so much positive feedback to share with our Dabble world. TRULY THANKYOU for making this adventurous boy friend look really really good!!! I am looking forward to spending time with y'all next month.
