What an amazing experience! Having lived in Naperville my whole life, I had no idea how much nature was available through the middle of downtown. Naperville Kayak is a great way to experience the outdoors and have a fun, relaxing experience. Highly recommended!

Our instructor John was great! He was so knowledgeable and thorough in his lessons. It was my first time kayaking and he set my mind at ease. I had the best time and would recommend Naperville Kayak to anyone looking for a great lesson and experience.
