Chicago Water Sport Rentals
Yamaha jet skis speed across Lake Michigan like waterproofed motorcycles. They're departing from the 31st Street Harbor home base of Chicago Water Sport Rentals. The jet skis certainly offer high-velocity thrills, but the most exhilarating moments may come when riders take their hands off the throttle and survey their surroundings. The entire Chicago skyline stretches before them, with unencumbered views of Soldier Field, Buckingham Fountain, Millennium Park, Adler Planetarium, and other landmarks.
But customers don't need motor-power to access these sights. Via Chicago Paddle Rentals they supply stand up paddleboards, flyboards, and kayaks, as well as The Hobie Kayak Spin series, group paddles, paddleboard yoga, and paddleboard fitness classes. The fleet encompasses standard kayaks and specialty models such as the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island, which boasts pedal-based propulsion and magnificent sails. For elevated adventures, the team fires up FlyBoards, which use a water-propulsion system to transform people into superheros who can fly up to 40 feet in the air and dive underwater faster than Aquaman during an awkward pause in conversation.
