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. 

The Guided Paddling opportunities we offer are:

  • Cardio Kayak classes at the Chicago launch
  • Sunset Nature trips at Chicago, the Lagoons and Busse Lake
  • Dinner trips at the Lagoons and Chicago
  • the Sandhill Cranes / Kankakee River trips - in October at the time of the great crane migration

To find out more about trips, click the menu link at left for the launch you're interested in and the menu will expand to show the trips offered at that launch.
