Groups meet at Kayak Chicago. The Events with BeneFitz team will begin check-in 15 minutes before the event start.
What You’ll Do
It’s easy to take beautiful scenery for granted when you see it every day. Fortunately the team at Events with Benefitz has just the ticket: the change of perspective brought about by an evening kayak trip. But watching the sun set from the river is only the beginning, as the next stop in this event transforms the city with a crackling bonfire and that cozy campout feeling. Read on for a taste of the itinerary:
Kayak Chicago—Safety First
After checking in with the Events with Benefitz team, you’ll get a 15-minute safety session from your guides, preping you to take to the water with confidence.
Tour—and Learn—on the River
See the Chicago skyline from a new vantage point as you paddle down the river and watch the sun set. Along the way, guides will offer insight into the history and architectural significance of some of the city’s loveliest bridges and skyscrapers, as well as Goose Island and the Merchandise Mart.
Fire and a Feast
Surrender your paddles to the guides, then pick up your dinner from The Slide Ride—you’ll choose from gourmet cheeseburger, barbecue-pork, and vegetarian-caprese sliders, along with a side of mac and cheese—before sitting down by the bonfire. Sip a craft beer and toast a marshmallow over the flames to end the evening on a sweet, s’moresy note.
