My 8-year-old son and I were looking for something fun to do while my husband and daughter were out of town, and Milwaukee Kayak Company did not disappoint. It was easy to book online, had free street parking, and super helpful and friendly staff. Kayaks and life jackets were in great condition. They even let you borrow a dry bag for free! There are lots of routes to choose from. We went north through downtown and stopped at multiple restaurants and bars. We could have spent all day on the river - and actually exceeded our 4-hour reservation time - but they did not charge us extra. The only downside was seeing some garbage in the river, but my son thought it was fun to pick it up and proud to be helping keep the river clean!

Beth and the team provide a great kayaking experience. I spend 2 weeks in Milwaukee every summer from Florida. A day on the River with MKC is an annual tradition. Would not miss it. Thanks Beth!

My sister and I did a guided lunchtime kayaking trip. Neither of us had much experience, but it was easy to pick up on and the staff was great at making sure we were comfortable. I did underestimate the amount of sunscreen I needed and ended up burnt, so make sure to apply sunscreen liberally and maybe take some along for reapplication on longer trips. We did a two hour trip up the Milwaukee River and it was a great way to see downtown in a new light. I hadn't realized how many boat launches there were! A great way to spend a couple hours.

Beth and crew from the MKE Kayak Company run a top notch organization and are loads of fun - I highly recommend renting from here for a day or for a season pass!

My husband and I went with a couple of friends from out of town. What a wonderful way to see the city! The staff was organized and very helpful and the rates were the best. Excellent precautions and cleaning regarding covid. We will definitely use this company again with other friends and family.
