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.
