Skyscraper Canyon

Much as we enjoyed offering our Skyscraper Canyon, we have chosen to focus on paddling in natural settings, so as of 2016, we've discontinued our downtown trips.  We still urge you to visit Lawrence's Fish at Canal & Cermak for excellent popcorn shrimp, fried fish, and an eclectic beer list.  We appreciate their willingness to host us and give us use of their dock for so many years.

Voucher Reservation Form

This was a page related to our Living Social Skyscraper Canyon trip offer from several years ago.  We no longer offer the Skyscraper Canyon trip downtown.  If you hold a Groupon from 2016, you should go to chicagoriverpaddle.com/vouchers.  If you hold a Living Social voucher from years back, use this form to contact us, writing a note mentioning your voucher and we'll explain your options.

Trips

Most people, including beginners, will find that they can paddle on their own in the gentle waters where we rent boats.  If you prefer to paddle with a guide or if one of these trips sounds appealing and fun, we'd love to have you join us.
