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.

Captain Gary and Mate Max were awesome! Even on a misty overcast day we had a blast. The other passengers were so fun to hang with, the music was great, and scenery was beautiful. Bring your own drinks, have your favorite playlist ready and be ready to have fun!

Our group had a great time on the water, only wish we could have gone longer! Captain Kiara was super fun and made the day better. Everyone is already talking about planning another paddle tour next summer.

We rented the whole boat for our family! This was so much fun - you don’t really need to paddle - there is a motor. Views of downtown Milwaukee are superb.

This was the 2nd time I’ve done the Paddle Tavern and it was just as great as I remembered. The staff are amazing - shout out to Chris and Ryan - and really made sure we had a fun time. Definitely a must if you want to see some of Milwaukee by boat!
