Sunset Kayak Tour

  • Milwaukee Kayak Company 318 South Water Street Milwaukee, WI, 53204 United States (map)

Join us on a relaxed paddle into the sunset on the Menomonee River. We'll learn about the history of the Menomonee River Valley and see the city from a different perspective. On the way back, we'll switch on our headlamps and enjoy a moonlit trip back past the Harley-Davidson Museum® and other sights.

Space is limited, pre-registration is required. Don’t delay. We will paddle upriver as far as time allows before turning around and paddling back to our dock.
