Madison’s lakes are one of our greatest assets. Thanks to Madison Boats and their location at Brittingham Park, it’s easier than ever for lake lovers to get out and enjoy the water. You can rent a canoe, kayak, standup paddle board, paddle boat or row boat.

What is Brittingham Boats?
Brittingham Boats is Madison’s downtown premier paddle destination. We offer hourly rentals for almost any paddle-able watercraft.
We opened in 2013, in what was once a very unused and dangerous park. After we opened, and added positive activities into the park, all of the negative activities went away with the people engaging in those activities.
Since then, the park has seen a huge turnaround, and has won awards for place-making, community contributions, and also been featured in the Cap Times for being a huge contributor to the changes in the park.
What type of rentals do you offer?
We offer boat rentals, but also have events like our kayak excursions to different restaurants on the lake. Our most popular event is our full moon paddles, where you paddle under the stars and full moon around floating fire pits. Live music and food are provided, too!
What do your customers love most about your company? What do your fave customers have to say about you?
Our customers love our staff. We’re all good people and we enjoy helping you have fun on the water.
What do you love about Madison – why is it a great fit for your company?
We love Madison’s lakes! Time on the water goes hand-in-hand with Madison summers, and we’re happy to be the ones to help you get out on the water with your friends and family.
