  • Urban Kayaks - Chinatown
    Brothers Aaron and Asher Gershenzon and friend James Morro grew up in the city but always possessed a passion for the outdoors. They practiced wilderness kayaking for most of their lives before earning their American Canoe Association certifications on Lake Superior. Each of them brings dual passions for their home city and outdoor sports to the company’s guided group and private kayak trips. Every paddle outing is different as guides blend downtown architectural commentary and little-known gangster stories with tie-ins to current events. Though each guide tells different stories, often interspersed with humor, all of them focus on environmentally friendliness. Paddling trips utilize a fleet of lime-green Confluence Watersports kayaks, and staffers often wear lime-green shirts—all of which render them easily identifiable from the Riverwalk but well-camouflaged in supermarket produce sections. Up to four guides lead groups of 15 or fewer kayakers, first preparing them with a briefing on paddling techniques, rules of the river, and assurances of the stability of their wide recreation kayaks. The guides' watchful eyes and constant advice have instilled confidence in even the most unsure participants. When not guiding trips, staffers extend their easygoing atmosphere to their office—nestled across the river from the Centennial Fountain's Water Arc—where the storefront lies amid the bustling city that surrounds it. Inside the shop, the owners' much-beloved pooches frolic around a hanging hammock.

  • Kayak Chicago
    The hustle and bustle of the city can’t touch the calm waters of Lake Michigan. There, on gently rolling waves surrounded by fresh breezes, Kayak Chicago hosts tours and lessons, and lets paddlers take to the waters on their own with rentals. Captained by Dave Olson, a kayaker for more than 20 years and outdoor educator for more than 10, the company entrusts certified instructors and guides with shaping the strokes of kayaking newbies. Their tours take aquatic explorers down the Chicago River at night to ooh and ahh over summer fireworks or during the day to survey the city’s renowned architecture and map out their next bank heist. The staff also plants patrons on standup paddleboards for introductory lessons or wave-top rounds of SUPYoga or SUPPilates.

  • Wheel Fun Rentals
    While vacationing in Italy in 1987, Brian McInerney came across the four-wheel, multi-passenger Surrey cycle. An avid cyclist, he was so enamored by the Surrey, he sought out the manufacturer and purchased a container of them before returning to the States. From that one container, Brian revolutionized his Surrey-distribution company into a rental and tour company that spans the nation with more than 100 locations. The company's goal is to bring smiles to faces and help make special memories that’ll last a lifetime, and they do this with their wide array of recreational vehicles. Wheel Fun's fleet of rentals now includes two wheel bicycles, multi-passenger Surreys, kayaks, pedal boats, boogie boards, Segways, and more. They also promote green communities by offering free rentals to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
