You will kayak approximately 6 miles and get a bit wet (not soaked).
You will want to shower after this.
They sell water in the rental shack, but always take water and a snack. Guides stop at points of interest on the river so easy to take a snack/drink break so you don't get dehydrated.
Not sure what parking situation is like. I don't EVER take a vehicle downtown. Since they provide all the gear, take the CTA bus to North Ave and Throop stop and walk down a block and over to entrance.
The weather was sunny and hot.. I wore nylon capris, Keens, light nylon jacket.
You will get wet, dress right and you're having a blast!..
