Description: Offers rentals and instruction on the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. They also have season passes on their rentals which may be a good idea if you want to kayak often. Regarding rentals, if you are planning on taking the kayak to another location, you are required to have taken their intro class and you must be paddling with another paddler (not alone). If you want to take a kayak off site and are going to be paddling solo, you are required to have taken both the intro and the intermediate course. They also offer SOT (sit on top) kayaks for rent which has no requirements since these are very stable and can be easily flipped right-side-up if they tip.

Kayak Chicago has several locations. This location is located on the Chicago River at 1501 N. Magnolia ave. just 3 blocks east of 90/94 and 1 block south of North Ave. They are at the south end of the brick building next to the river, between Old Town and Bucktown.
