$29 for a Two-Hour Guided Kayaking Trip with Instruction and Equipment ($60 Value)

Each guided kayak trip includes a brief instructional session and supplies all the necessary equipment: personal flotation device, paddle, kayak, and trident. Gliding along the peaceful waters of Lake Michigan, kayakers can gaze upon the bountiful flora and fauna inhabiting the serene surroundings.

Trips take off from either Gillson Beach in Wilmette, Winnetka, or Skokie Lagoons; The Northwest Passage determines the location two hours before your trip call the location hotline (847-920-4409) to find out where to meet.

See the trip schedule here. Single and double kayaks are available for the trip, though each Groupon is only valid for one person.

The Northwest Passage

Founder Rick Sweitzer started the adventure travel company in 1983 before leading one of the first amateur dogsled expeditions to North Pole. Driven by his vision, the guides and instructors of The Northwest Passage lead travelers of all skill and fitness levels to some of the most dramatic terrain on the planet. Locally, the team leads outings around the Chicago area, ranging from stand-up paddleboarding classes on Lake Michigan to kayaking and camping trips in Door County, Wisconsin. As for the rest of the world, Northwest Passage sends it adventurers to conquer it locale by stunning locale during programs that include hiking across Europe, trekking to remote Polar regions, and dressing up like scientists to infiltrate Area 51.

It was a great experience. The guides were super nice, and very helpful for a first-timer! I had an unfortunate pinched nerve come up the day before the experience, but they didn't even flinch - they put me in a tandem and I was still able to have a great time. Highly recommend!
