Q:

I bought the wrong one. What can I do to change?

Bekzot A.  asked on  May 3, 2013

A:

Sorry for the delay and trouble! You can edit your purchase (including quantity, billing information, or canceling your order) in your account at www.groupon.com/mygroupons. If you need further help, please contact Groupon support.

Q:

Are your kayaks the kind that are 'enclosed' (for recreational) or is it the type that causes the user to get their legs/butt wet? Also, and I'm concerned about the cleanness of the river water and if the user gets in direct contact with the water from sitting or do they normally stay pretty dry? Do we get some sort of map or something to prevent getting lost? What's also the policy on being late on bringing the kayak back, for example 10-15 minutes?

Jennifer W.  asked on  Apr 30, 2013

A:

These are recreational kayaks. Please prepare to get wet from the drip of your paddle. If you are concerned about getting lost, please consult the employees at Kayak Chicago to give you recommendations on the best way to navigate. If you go over the time, you will be prorated for the time you spend on the water.

Q:

Is the orientation counted in the 2 hour period?

Jennifer W.  asked on  Apr 30, 2013

A:

Sorry for the delay and confusion! Your rental will start the moment you pick up your kayak and hit the water. There is no formal orientation for their recreational kayaks.

Q:

Earlier question alludes to this one somewhat but not exactly it. are there any double kayak deals (they are all single & if you upgrade you are paying more than you need to....the website clearly is cheaper to rent a double than 2 singles). Hoping some of these might have PRICES for 2 in a double. Thx.

Janet P.  asked on  May 2, 2013

A:

Sorry for the confusion! As the merchant mentioned, you can use two Groupons valid for a single kayak to rent a tandem kayak. Therefore, you would purchase two Groupons and redeem them both together.

Q:

So if I want to kayak for 2 hours on a weekend day with two friends and see the river downtown (not on a formal tour), I would get the "Valid Saturday-Sunday: Two hour sea kayak rental" deal (1 for myself and 2 as gifts) and leave from the Goose Island 1220 W. LeMoyne Ave. location--correct?

Douglas H.  asked on  Apr 30, 2013

A:

Sorry for the delay! Yes, you should purchase the $20 option that is valid for a two-hour rental of a one-person recreational, sea, or whitewater kayak on Saturday or Sunday. You will leave from the Goose Island location.

Q:

I see that your website displays people kayaking off of the river downtown-is that available for people who are renting it hourly without a tour? If so where would be the best place for them to pick up their kayak?

Jennifer W.  asked on  Apr 29, 2013

A:

Yes, this will be fine, you can find their rental locations Here.

John  from  Groupon  replied on  Apr 30, 2013

A:

Yes, you can paddle into the city and back within the two hour rental period from our River location off of North ave. and the river.

Q:

Good Morning sir I never have done kayaking. So I am little scared, but could you explained me in terms of new comers which timing should I go ? are you guys provide guide before starting ?

Ruchi P.  asked on  Apr 30, 2013

A:

Hi Ruchi, We start all tours with an orientation, teaching paddle strokes, safety and rules of the water. Once on the water our guides will help you refine paddle strokes and keep you safe on the water.

Dave  from  Merchant  replied on  Apr 30, 2013

Q:

Can two single kayak Groupons be redeemed for 1 double kayak or can a single kayak be upgraded to a double?

Allie W.  asked on  Apr 29, 2013

A:

Hi Allie, Yes, you can use two single kayak vouchers for use of a double kayak.

Dave  from  Merchant  replied on  Apr 30, 2013

Q:

It says on their site that I'd need to take a class to rent a sea kayak. If I buy the Groupon for the 2 hour rental, I would need to complete their class first right? I have no experience with sea kayaks, only the recreational ones.

Thomas B.  asked on  Apr 29, 2013

A:

Hi Thomas, We have recreational kayaks for rent at all three locations, that need no prior experience. If you want to rent sea kayaks (longer, narrower, faster boats) Then you need to take our introduction to sea kayaking class.
