Milwaukee Kayak Company

Thank you for visiting Milwaukee Kayak Company – offering kayak, canoe and standup paddleboard rentals on the Milwaukee River with easy access to the Menomonee and KK Rivers. Milwaukee Kayak Company (MKC) was founded in 2013 after many years of adventures and exploration on our urban water trail which includes the Milwaukee, Menomonee and KK Rivers. We are celebrating our 3rd season and look forward to seeing you on the river soon!

Current | Late Season Hours (open thru October 18th):
• Friday 10am – 6:30pm
• Saturday-Sunday 9am – 6:30pm
* all boats need to be back to our dock by 6:30pm
* closed Monday-Thursday

We have officially entered “late season” which means that daily rentals are currently available Friday, Saturday and Sunday (closed Monday-Thursday). All boats are due back to our dock by 6:30pm. We hope to remain open on weekends thru October 18th – depends on river and weather conditions.

All of our organized guided trips have been completed for the season. If you’d like to schedule a guided trip for your school group, company outing, group of campers or anyone else, please send us an email at info@milwaukeekayak.com and we’ll respond with details.

Can we launch personal watercraft from MKC?
We cannot launch personal watercraft from our location because we are located on private property. Click here to find the closest public kayak launches, thanks for your understanding.

What should we bring when kayaking with MKC?
We receive lots of questions about what people should bring when they rent kayaks from us. Our suggestion is to keep it simple – and keep it smart. Breathable clothing, simple footwear and bottled water are great starters. Read more here.
