Lessons are not required for recreational kayaking. Guides will not be included.

A:

We give everyone an orientation, teaching paddle strokes, safety and rules of the water. If you are renting, you are then off on you own. If you purchase a guided tour, you are with guides the entire time.

Q:

If I buy a kayak voucher one of my kids and a paddleboard voucher for my other child, can they switch and try each other's. If they get tired can I take over using it as long as it is still within the 2 hours?

kevin t.  asked on  Aug 8, 2013

A:

The vouchers are specific to one person, but if they want to switch half way through, thats fine, but they will have to go through the orientation of the other activity they switch to.

Q:

(1) I'd like to kayak on Friday evening. Is this considered weekday or weekend or does it matter? (2) I have 4 friends who also want to participate with me. What is the maximum number of participants you take out on an architectural tour at once? (3) How much advance notice do we have to give you for a tour commitment date?

E M.  asked on  Aug 7, 2013

A:

Friday is considered weekday, but either will work. We can accommodate up to 50 people. We typically sell out a few days in advance, but we do still have space for our night paddle tomorrow from 8-11pm. You can register by phone at 312-852-9258. See you on the water!

Q:

Just to clarify, when you say you can use one Groupon per visit, is it OK if two people who each have bought a Groupon come together? I'm looking at getting this for my mom as a gift and buying one for my son so they can go together, and I just want to make sure this is permissible. Thanks.
