Super friendly staff. Got us kitted up and off we went. Really nice people.

Loved the half-day on the water. Paddled down to Lakefront Brewery.

Great way to see the city. Recommend the experience.

Also, the kayaks are robust and didn't tip when I was getting in/out! Phew. :)

Milwaukee Kayak is a bit tough to find. It's located inside a sketchy place called Jerry's Boat Dock, but once you find it it's a pretty good experience. We rented two kayaks and were given 4 hours to explore the rivers of Milwaukee. The staff was friendly and the boats were nice.

Kayaking is such an awesome way to see the downtown and MKC is a great place to rent. Because their location is in the southern part of the river area you paddle out/up but essentially get to drift back with the current. They also take time to show you how to safely get in and out of the kayak in case you want to stop somewhere along the river to have a drink (we stopped at The Harp and The Milwaukee Ale House, both of which had docks to tie to). The equipment is basic but fine for an afternoon rental.

This is by far one of the best things to do in Milwaukee on a warm day. We had visitors in from Chicago and we rented a few kayaks to see the sights downtown one afternoon, stopping for a few drinks along the numerous riverwalk establishments. It was by far the most fun we've had in a long time in our lovely city entertaining out of town guests.

Reasonably priced, the staff is VERY helpful and knowledgeable and answered all our questions before we paddled away to enjoy the sights, the exercise and warm sunny day on the river.

HIGHLY recommend this to locals as a perfect way to spend a summer day and to visitors who want to see the incredible development that has taken place downtown over the last few years.

My 14 year old son and I took a kayak trip in August 2016 and had a great time. We are used to "floating" on Missouri rivers not in the city so this was very interesting for us!
We took our trip during the week in the early afternoon and really had the river to ourselves. This trip gives you a different perspective of the city, river and the architecture. We did not use the whole time allotted time but still felt it was worth the price! Great people working there too! All around great experience for both of us.
