After eating our way through Rockwell’s offerings , a little exercise was a welcomed event. Our guide was funny, safety minded, and full of great stories. If you want to see the city from the river’s vantage, Rockwell’s riverfront is the place.

We had a great time out in the river in their kayaks, and we were thoroughly impressed by their operation! Love the kayak chute into and out of the river – made for an easy transition. If you’re looking for some river paddle fun in the sun, this is your place!

Very professional outfit. Joined the sunset tour where the guide concentrated on the early settler history of Chicago. Definitely the best way to tour, active participation is a must 🙂 Keen to come back with my kids and give the evening Fireworks Paddle a spin!
