Milwaukee Harbor+KK River Kayak Tour w/ Harbor District, Inc.
July 24, 2019, 5:15 pm-8:00 pm$35
We are excited to partner with Harbor District, Inc. as we paddle through our Harbor and up the KK River. We are offering this guided paddle on two different dates: Wednesday, July 24th & Wednesday, September 18th. Both trips will be similar as we paddle along highlighting and talking about some of the cool projects that are happening in the Harbor District – both on the water and on-land.
We reside in the Harbor District and have gained a deep appreciation for this area since we opened 7 years ago. While we’ve seen a lot of change and revitalization during our time here, there’s so much more to come including the addition of a new public park (Harbor View Plaza) and riverwalk extension to reconnect neighborhoods. We’ve learned about the Habitat Hotels and will talk about these and other developments planned for this area as we paddle together taking in the sites and sounds of the Harbor.
These trips are fun, educational, safe and casual. They are perfect for anyone looking to experience the sport of kayaking, make a nice outing for family and friends and makes the perfect date night too!
• Cost: $35 per person; $15 will be donated back to Harbor District, Inc.
• Space is limited | online pre-registration required
• If this trip needs to be cancelled due to weather and river conditions, we will notify you by phone and/or email and you will receive a full refund.
These trips are organized through a partnership with Milwaukee Kayak Company and Harbor District, Inc. Tickets are $35 each, and $15 of each ticket will be donated back to Harbor District, Inc.
