Do you own a kayak or canoe?

Yes, I have a Carolina Perception 14.5 (plastic)

What kind of paddling have you done previously?

Yes. I've been a member of the Chicago Kayak group ( for a couple of year and participated in local paddles at Skokie Lagoons, Mississippi River, and on Lake MI

What do you look for in this group

I'm looking for group paddling opportunities closer to home (Naperville area, Fox river, etc), as the Chicago Kayak group operates mostly out of the northern Chicago suburbs.

What type of paddling are you interested in? Kayaking, canoeing, day trips, overnighters, etc.

more flatwater/sea kayaking (ie: not whitewater)


I'm an "intermediate" kayaker interested in additional opportunities to get out on the water, particularly in the western Chicago suburbs.
