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!
Bring water-friendly clothing and shoes. Blue jeans not recommended. Bring electronics at your own
