Milwaukee Kayak Company

Thank you for visiting Milwaukee Kayak Company - offering kayak, canoe and standup paddleboard rentals on the Milwaukee River.

Milwaukee Kayak Company (MKC) was founded in 2013 after many years exploring the Milwaukee, Menomonee and KK Rivers. We are locally-owned, community driven and love Milwaukee and our beautiful waterways. We are located on the Milwaukee River in the Harbor District area adjacent to the Walkers Point neighborhood and across the River from the Historic Third Ward District. Our unique location provides a beautiful view of the Milwaukee River, Hoan Bridge and historic train bridge.

We will be opening again for the season on Friday, May 22nd, the beginning of Memorial Day weekend, as long as weather and river conditions permit. Please keep in touch with us here, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates.

Reservations are recommended to ensure boat availability. Visit our Reservations and FAQ's pages for more information and to help answer any questions. Please visit our blog for special events and updates and email us anytime at info@milwaukeekayak.com.

Thanks again for visiting our site. See you on the water and Paddle On... Milwaukee!
