I finally convinced my water-fearing husband to go kayaking with me on Wisconsin River after my much-enjoyable trip with my friends renting kayaks from the Wisconsin Canoe Company. The company is punctual and the staff are very friendly. The trip was as enjoyable as it can get. Don't fear the 10 miles. With the water pushing you, you'll be at peck's landing before you know it. So enjoy the boat ride!!
Dos: Although the water is very shallow most of the time, keep your lifejacket on. Drink lightly. Avoid river banks. Enjoy the view. Have fun and avoid large singing groups :-P
Don't: Don't get close to the banks with dead/half-dead trees sticking out. Don't underestimate the speed of water. Don't overestimate your ability to swim in rapid water.
Special thanks to Ryan for boating upstream for two miles and rescuing my husband and I out of the lonely island after we both fell and lost our kayaks. Husband is not convince that water is safe. But it sure was a lot of fun and a good story to tell. WEAR YOUR LIFE JACKETS!!!! =)

The WI Canoe Company does a fantastic job! This is the perfect group to go to for a stress free vacation. Besides picking what boat you want to take down the river there is nothing else to worry about. The prices are great, the staff is super friendly and helpful, and the whole canoeing part is awesome! If you want a great time, then these are the people you want helping you!

Thanks, you guys were great! I would definitely recommend that anyone who is looking for a fun vacation to go here. We had an awesome time. I might be a bit biased, because the weather was perfect and the scenery was amazing.

We have been taking trips with the WI Canoe Company since we moved from MI to WI in 2010. Ryan and his crew are amazing! The day trips are a blast, but nothing beats an overnight! We look forward to many, many more trips!! Thanks for all that you do!

We've done three overnight trips with these guys so far (and have more booked for the future) and I can tell you from experience, if you're on the fence about booking a trip, stop reading and go do it now! You will not regret it! We have taken large groups over a dozen people and several dogs down to just two dudes in kayaks. It's always a blast! Every time WCC has been just fantastic and taken good care of us. They have great gear in great shape. Always quick to respond to our emails and very accommodating to our requests. One big plus is they really look out for your safety. If the conditions are not suitable for floating for any reason they will cheerfully reschedule your trip for another time. No shady business practices here. Looking forward to many more days of fun in the sun with these guys.

Me and five of my college girlfriends decided to go on a day canoe trip for our yearly girls weekend. I was very impressed with the quick replies to emails and very professional friendly staff! I had to call the day of because there were so many storms in the area and staff were very friendly and accommodating. We ended up going despite the rain and it cleared up and we had a great time! The canoes were very nice, staff was super friendly and i would ABSOLUTELY use this company again! Really is the best canoe company i have dealt with, well deserved name!

I've been on my fair share of shuttles both for canoe and for mountain bikes and have dealt with several different outfitters and shuttle drivers over the years. Wisconsin Canoe Co strikes me as one of the best. Completely trouble free easy to setup shuttle runs. Extremely courteous and professional driver. Well maintained equipment. A well organized knowledgeable outfitter that gives you everything you need before you fumble to ask. No waiting, no frustrations, very reasonable cost. Great experience! When I do this river again I'll certainly pick WCC.

Very quick response to emails. Staff was waiting for us at launch even though we were 15 minute early. She was really cool, yet made sure we understood the rules very clearly. Extremely accommodating.
