Kayakers, unlike pancakes or depressed turtles, muster the will to get themselves upright when flipped upside down. Float through life with today's Groupon to Chicago River Canoe & Kayak. The Groupon is redeemable for trips departing on weeknights Monday–Thursday. Choose between the following options:
• For $25, you get a Skyscraper Canyon Trip for one person in a single kayak (a $50 value).
• For $35, you get a Skyscraper Canyon Trip for two people in a tandem kayak (a $70 value).
The knowledgeable staff at Chicago River Canoe & Kayak slices through the Chicago River, hosting breathtaking kayak tours of Chicago's historic downtown region. Before the 2.5-hour weeknight Skyscraper Canyon Trip, an experienced staff member arms paddlers with life jackets and preliminary training on safe paddling techniques and proper duck-call etiquette. Customers board their oblong watercraft and depart from the Lawrence's Fish dock at Canal and Cermak, just three blocks from the Red Line station.
The 5.5-mile round-trip expedition ventures along the Chicago River and past looming landmarks such as Willis Tower and Merchandise Mart, which boasts towering busts of American industrial icons along the riverfront and flocks of Chicago's native department-store catalogs overhead. Cruisers veer around the river's forks, glide under the Michigan Avenue Bridge, and into the Windy City's bustling hub. They will also cruise south of the Loop along a strip of undeveloped forest, which brims with wildlife and reclusive parking meters.
