Kayak Companion: Exploring Chicagoland's Waterways

I’m looking for a kayak buddy to explore the Chicago River systems with me. I have a tandem Wilderness Systems boat that’s wonderful. I’m also considering going down the DesPlaines River and checking out the canals. I would love to meet local folks who have their own boats and want to paddle. I am in the market for a single kayak so we can stay six feet apart.

You may be able to find some paddling partners through this organization.


I’m about two hours away from you in SW Michigan if you’d like to pop over and go for a paddle some time down the road after the virus thing subsides.

Since it’s Chicago, is a bullet proof vest necessary equipment?

If your still in Chicago. I am in the area and I have been trying to get out myself. I have just a basic (sundolphin) kayak and if you are still looking for a single you can use one of mine.
