2020 Season – Opening Friday, May 22nd of Memorial Day weekend
October 13, 2019-May 31, 2020
Hello everyone! We are excited to open and celebrate our 8th season on Friday, May 22nd of Memorial Day weekend. We will open earlier if we can – it just depends on river and weather conditions. Please stay tuned to our website and social media pages (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) for updates.
In season, we are open every day for daily kayak, canoe and paddleboard rentals. To make a reservation for a daily rental, please give us a call or email (we do not currently offer online reservations for daily rentals). We also offer weekly guided tours and will post our calendar in April 2020. Registration for our weekly guided tours are available online (they will be posted and available in April). If you have any questions before then, please call or email us anytime, thank you.

About us + Thank you!
Milwaukee Kayak Company (MKC) has become a really fun and unique spot on our rivers and we have met so many cool people from here, our neighboring states and around the world. We appreciate you and thank you for spending time on our rivers. Here in Milwaukee, we have three rivers flowing right through our city – the Milwaukee River, Menomonee River and KK River. We also have many organizations with solid visions working hard to clean up and maintain our rivers and lakes. We contribute in their mission and include you (who kayak and support us!) in this mix as we continue to clean up and advocate for our rivers every day through cleanups, daily rentals and weekly guided tours.
At Milwaukee Kayak Company, we support and paddle with many organizations that care about our rivers and thank you for making it possible for MKC to support and donate to these organizations. Most of our guided tours focus on educating the public about what’s happening in our watershed, and we are proud of our commitment for clean and safe water. Below are many of the organizations we host guided tours with(*) and support:
• Milwaukee Riverkeeper* (Paddle & A Pour Guided Tours)
• Milwaukee County Historical Society* (History Tours)
• Harbor District, Inc.* (guided tours through the Harbor and KK River)
• Menomonee Valley Partners* (guided tours through the Menomonee Valley and Menomonee River)
