My husband and I were visiting Madison for the weekend. We wanted to be active and still be able to socially distance and therefore, chose kayaking on the lake as one of our activities. We were very impressed with Brittingham Boats. They were doing everything they should have been doing to keep people safe during the Covid pandemic. You reserve online and can fill out the rest of the necessary forms online, as well; and then just need to show your ID when you get there. Guests were asked to wear masks and tape had been placed to keep social distances. The staff were all wearing masks and they were sterilizing the kayaks and equipment after every rental. The kayaks were in great working order and the staff was friendly, quick and efficient. Steffen (sp?) was very helpful in that we had questions about the best type of kayaks for us to buy and he took the time to answer all of our questions and was very helpful. If you are looking for a fun way to spend a couple of hours, be able to social distance and get some exercise, we would wholeheartedly recommend that you check out Brittingham Boat rental.

It was my first time kayaking and it was super fun! Due to COVID, I had to book/pay for the boat online (super easy). Then checked-in at the place. Overall it was a smooth process. Staffs were super nice and helpful. They help you get into the boat and get you out of the water once you dock.
