Milwaukee River Kayak Tour in West Bend

August 9 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Milwaukee River Kayak Tour in West Bend

Enjoy a 4 mile paddle down the Milwaukee River in West Bend! This paddle begins with views of downtown West Bend as you navigate the fun, meandering river and ends with calm flatwater as you paddle through peaceful parks. If water levels are high enough, we’ll begin the trip with scenic views of downtown West Best. If not, we’ll put in south of Downtown and enjoy the more peaceful section of the trip! Recommended for beginners with some experience or those with a sense of adventure. We’ll provide kayaks, paddles, life jackets, and instruction. Don’t forget your sunscreen, hat, water, and enthusiasm. We will use single person kayaks.

Water levels on the Milwaukee River can be very unpredictable. We will be monitoring them closely ahead of the event. There is a possibility we may have to walk our boats through the river in some sections or change launching locations due to low water levels. Further information and meeting location will be provided by email ahead of the paddle.

Ages 10+ | Children must be accompanied by an adult
