About Milwaukee Paddle Tavern
A great way to explore Downtown Milwaukee by boat. We staff the boats with a captain and first mate. Bring your own beer, wine and snacks. We have two boats available for rent. Each boat can fit up to 14 people. Tours are 100 minutes long, with lots of great bars and restaurants along the Milwaukee River to make a quick pit stop. Our season runs seven days a week; open May-October.

Had such a great time on a family birthday. Captian Tim made the day and made our trip very memorable. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone.

My niece’s bachelorette party was held in Milwaukee with the first stop being the Milwaukee Paddle Tavern. It was so much fun I want to go back again just to do it again! Matt O was great - it was like he was one of us or an old friend that fit right in. He got the girls e cited for the trip and kept everyone having fun the entire ride. The other Matt was a great captain too! I’d honestly go back just to hang out with Matt O again. As far as the ride goes, it’s down the Milwaukee river with lots to see. We stopped at a bar along the way for drinks. It was totally optional as we had brought drinks in the paddle tavern. It’s BYOB.

We loved our trip. Captain Tim and Will were fun and made the most of our cruise. We saw some fantastic buildings along the river and Tim told us great stories of his time as a boat captain. I highly recommend this experience.

Always a blast! The staff is fabulous. Grab some friends and enjoy the ride. It is kid friendly as well but couples and/or friends with some cocktails is my preference

We had a group of 14 celebrating a Birthday. This was so much fun! Captain Tim and his first mate Jeremy were so helpful and accommodating. We had 2 options as to which way we wanted to go on the River. We chose the option with 2 Bar stops for drinks. You can bring your own beverages (can or plastic) on the boat and they have built-in coolers with ice. Highly recommend this!
