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.

If I would have known what it was, I would have booked the entire day! It was a great time, Tim was a great captain. Clean vessel, well managed, and could not ask for more! Will definitely be visiting again!!!
