Reservations, Rates & Rental Info

Hello and thanks for finding Milwaukee Kayak Company (#MKC). We are excited to celebrate our 9th season and look forward to seeing you at MKC and on our rivers soon. We will be opening for the season on Friday, May 21st and offer daily rentals and weekly guided tours, showcasing our rivers and beautiful Milwaukee skyline. Please find our calendar and book your reservation by clicking on the “BOOK NOW” button on the bottom right.

$65 / up to 4 hours

Paddleboard:
$35 / up to 4 hours

Canoe:
$65 / up to 4 hours

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.

Our weekly Guided Tours are fun and educational. We will gather as a group, launch and paddle together. All of our guided tours include safety boaters to help guide everyone along the way. Sometimes we will make a stop on the river where we can get out and stretch and/or grab a beverage – it just depends on the tour. Most of our tours are 3 hours long with 2 – 2 -1/2 hours spent paddling on our rivers. You can find our calendar by clicking on the “BOOK NOW” button on the bottom right.

All rentals include a boat (kayak, paddleboard, canoe), life jacket and paddle. We have a limited supply of dry bags you can borrow for your belongings. Please remember we are not responsible for lost, stolen or wet items. Life jackets must be worn at all times when near or on the water, thanks.

All participants need to be 12+ to paddle their own kayaks. If under the age of 12, then that paddler can share a tandem kayak or canoe with an adult (18+). All participants need to know how to swim.

The weight limit of our most stable kayak is 275 lbs depending on river and weather conditions. If weight is a concern, please give us a call to chat and/or make an appointment to talk about options or test paddling.

Everyone must submit a waiver before arrival. When making your reservation, you will receive an email confirmation with a link to our waiver. You can also find our waiver on the top right of our website. Thanks!

We also offer special group tours. If you would like to organize a school group, community organization or special group outing, please give us a call or send an email anytime.
