Shady Chicago: Ghosts and Gangsters of Hustlertown (PG13)

What to expect
  • Embark on an evening kayaking adventure through the heart of Downtown Chicago
  • Learn about the city’s mob-filled past and several supposedly haunted sites along the river
  • Get some light physical exercise while feeding your need for adventure
  • Indulge your sense of adventure without having to leave Chicago
Get ready to wet yourself...Not because you’ll be falling into the Chicago River (hopefully) during this kayaking adventure, but because of the terrifying tales that you’ll hear along the way. This evening excursion will have you paddling through downtown, where on either side of you dark buildings and notorious legends loom large.

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. However, if a semi-transparent Al Capone pokes his head out of the water … paddle faster.

Note: The biggest singles have weight capacities of 275 lbs and doubles can hold combined weights of approximately 435 lbs.
