Reservations and Rental Info
Hello and thanks for finding us online! We are excited to celebrate our 8th season at Milwaukee Kayak Company (MKC) and look forward to seeing you at #MKC and on our rivers soon.
Our main location at 318 SOUTH Water Street is located on the Milwaukee River in the Harbor District across from the Historic Third Ward. This location is open 7 days/week and is located in a boatyard called Jerry’s Docks (now called Harbor Yards). Our main location offers daily kayak, canoe and paddleboard rentals and weekly guided tours. We are open everyday through Labor Day and after then, we will be open for reservations and will continue to offer guided tours through mid-October.
Our Schlitz Park location at 1555 North RiverCenter Drive is located on the Milwaukee River upriver from our main location (about a 30 minute paddle) and is open Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-5pm. This location offers single kayak rentals and a limited supply of tandem kayaks.
We recommend making reservations to ensure boat availability and to help us plan for your arrival. Please click on “Book Online Now” below to check availability and reserve online. You may also call or text in your reservation. Walk-ups are welcome, but we do appreciate reservations to help plan for your arrival.
Daily rentals are for up to 4 hours. You can return your boats whenever you’d like during those 4 hours – some paddlers stay out for an hour, some stay out for 4 hours – it’s all up to you. If you think you’d like your rentals longer than 4 hours, please let us know and we can talk about options.
DAILY RENTAL RATES:
• Single Person Kayaks $35 / 4 hours
• Tandem Kayaks $65 / 4 hours
• Canoes $65 / 4 hours
• Paddleboards $35 / 4 hours
All rentals include a boat, life jacket and paddle. We have a limited supply of dry bags that you can borrow to protect your belongings. Please remember that we are not responsible for wet, lost or stolen merchandise and life jackets must be worn when near or on the water.
