Overview

A great way to explore Downtown Milwaukee by boat. We staff the boats with a captain and first mate. Bring your own beer, wine and snacks. We have two boats available for rent. Each boat can fit up to 14 people. Tours are 100 minutes long, with lots of great bars and restaurants along the Milwaukee River to make a quick pit stop. Our season runs seven days a week; open May-October.

Tim and Matt helped make a great trip! We had beautiful weather and a fabulous time. Next time, we'd do a private tour rather than public.
