    Chicago River Ghosts and Gangsters Kayak Tour

    Everybody knows that if you're looking for ghosts and gangsters, there's a few obvious places to look. Ghosts: old houses on hills, cemeteries. Gangsters: Gentleman's clubs and speakeasies. But HERE'S a place you might not think of where you can find stories of both: The Chicago River! Follow your guide through the downtown segment of the Chicago River, which borders city skyscrapers like Willis Tower. As you paddle, you'll listen to sordid tales about the Windy City, including how its explosive boom in the mid-1800s (following the construction of railroads) led to Chicago's gritty side coming out. You'll hear about crime lords, from Big Jim Colosimo, Papa Johnny Torrio, to the kingpin himself, Al Capone. This is a great way to learn about Chicago's darker side!

Get a unique perspective at the urban environment that crafted by the likes of Johnny Torrio, Jim Colosimo, and Al Capone. You'll also learn about many of the reportedly haunted spots along the way - relics of the city's bloody past. Whether you're first time kayaker, or have some experience, you'll be in good hands thanks to the trained and experienced adventurist that'll serve as your guide.
