Q&A with John Chase, General Manager
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
We rent kayaks and lead classes in a beautiful protected quarry in downtown Naperville. We provide the boat, life jacket, and paddle, along with instruction to help you enjoy your time on the water. We are experts at helping beginning kayakers feel confident and comfortable in their boats. Nothing makes us happier than the smiles we see when people come off the water.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
We started Naperville Kayak because we felt a huge need to get people outdoors and away from their smart phones. Our area has so much to offer, and we wanted to help people experience something they've never expected, right in their backyard. We hope to be the springboard to bigger adventures.
