Milwaukee Kayaking Company


Last night two friends and I took the Milwaukee Kayak Company Harbor District Tour.  I had a excellent time.  

We signed up for the August 10th tour. On August 10th there was a severe thunderstorm warning which cancelled the trip. We rescheduled for last night.

We arrived at 5:15 pm for the trip. We registered then we were fitted for a kayak and life jackets.  I brought my own life jacket ~ I know it is silly but I feel safe in my life jacket. 

They offered water, snack, and headlamps if needed.  We were all good.

It was a group of about 15 people - all different ages and all different skill sets for kayaking. A few this was their first time in a kayak others definitely knew how to paddle. 

We had two guides from the Milwaukee Harbor District that explained what was happening in the district.  I was very impressed at the districts work to save the area.  I can remember when the Milwaukee River area was very polluted. Over the past 25 years there has been a lot of work done to clean up the waterways and Lake Michigan. The waterway area is much cleaner that it was.  I was especially impressed with the floating islands and the underway fish habitats.

Very fun trip that I recommend to everyone living in the area and visiting Milwaukee. The cost is $25 for the Harbor District Tour - definitely worth the money! Excellent guided trip with good equipment. I had a Pelican Prodigy Kayak and a Harmony Sea Passage Paddle ~ both good quality.
This is a post where the pics can tell the story!
