ACA Coastal Kayak Day Trip Leader

These ACA workshops provide professional training that has proven popular with regional outfitters, paddling clubs and recreational paddlers. This is the training regional outfitters look for when hiring staff and many of the participants go on to guide kayak trips. Participants highly rate the workshops for skill development, fun, quality and professionalism.

Held in Chicago, these workshops will take advantage of the nearby Chicago River and Lake Michigan waters. Beautiful locations, they offer a great location for the training and assessment requirements of the workshops.

Lead Instructor Trainer is Sam Crowley of, one of the most experienced paddlers and Instructor Trainer/Educator on the Great Lakes and nationally. He has been instructing since 1996, running ACA Instructor Workshops since 1999 and paddling expeditions: on the Great Lakes, both Coasts of North America and in Europe. In 2007 Sam paddled solo around Ireland.

From courteous and helpful staff to our lovable pooches hanging out at the shop, this experience will leave a smile on your face. We love Chicago and work hard every day to share the city that raised us and the adventure that inspired us
