Brittingham Boats

701 W. Brittingham Pl.
Madison, WI 53715

Located right downtown, Brittingham Boats is your destination for summer fun.


Brittingham Boats offers paddle craft rentals of kayaks, standup paddle board, canoes, paddle boats, and even giant 6 person paddle boards. Relax on the protected bay, or enjoy the easy paddle under two railroad bridges and John Nolen Drive to explore Lake Monona. The Monona Terrace was designed to be seen from the water - so paddle over, admire the architecture of the building and the City and take a selfie while you are there :-)


With full moon paddles, excursions to awesome restaurants, ice cream and so much more, this is a Madison MUST. 


We do sell out so BOOK YOUR BOAT NOW!
