Singles Canoe Trip

An outdoor adventure is closer than you think…

Why travel afar when you can experience rich wildlife and urban adventure in your own backyard? Friends of the Chicago River will be taking us canoing on several sections of the Chicago River. Experienced and knowledgeable river guides, paddling skills training, and equipment (canoes, paddles, insurance, personal flotation devices and dry bags) are provided by Friends of the Chicago River.

We will be taking the …. DOWNTOWN CANYONS tour!
This ultimate urban canoe adventure will have you sharing the river with tour and recreational boats, barges and others while basking in the wonder of Chicago’s architecture from water level. Some paddling experience recommended, but not required.

Sunday May 22 11am-2pm(ish). $50 per person.

All ages (21 and up).


  • Final details are being worked out (such as where we will be dropping in and our route) but it will be in the Chicago downtown vicinity.
  • We will have a quick lunch break, but it’s a BYOL! Bring a snack or light lunch… you’ll have worked up an appetite by then!
  • There are two people per canoe. Bring a friend or make a new one! I’ll try to “match” you with a compatable single of the opposite sex, but if we have uneven numbers then I’ll match you with a new best friend! We will change canoe partners after our lunch break.
  • If you register with a friend, or have a canoe partner already picked out email me!
  • We will most likely do round trip, to make it easier for commuters.
  • Final details should be posted by Thursday AM.
  • I must have a 100% accurate headcount therefore am requiring full payment upfront (they also require full payment in advance).
  • There are no refunds on this event unless I (or you) am/are able to “sell” your ticket to another member. Email me if you have a conflict after purchasing. We’ll do our best to help you out!
  • It’s a 3 hour trip, though we will be moving slow, this is still hard work. You’ll work up a sweat.
  • Not the place to wear heels or a new blouse! Sunscreen / sunglasses highly recommended.
  • I have to have 26 of you register in order to keep our price at $50 for the private tour… so forward this to your friends!
  • If we cancel the tour for lack of response you WILL receive 100% of your ticket cost back within 3 days.
  • May 18th is the last day to sign up!
