Private Canoe/Kayak Transport

We’d be happy to provide transportation for you to paddle your own canoe/kayak on the Lower Wisconsin River.

NOTE: We do NOT provide transport service on Saturday mornings in July and August. Our first priority is our rental customers during this time.

ALSO NOTE: WRO no longer will transport private boats and gear. We will only transport the driver(s) up/down river.

SHORT Distance Upriver Transport Process – Spring Green, Lone Rock, Gotham, Muscoda, Blue River to Boscobel

Drop off people, boat and gear at your desired put in.

  1. ONLY the driver(s) will continue downriver to our shop at 715 Wisconsin Ave, Boscobel, WI 53805 to check-in.
  2. We’ll swing by the boat landing to drop your vehicle and then head upriver with the driver on the next available van and back to the group…and away you go!
  3. You’ll finish your trip at your vehicle.

SHORT Distance Downriver Transport Process – Woodman, Millville, Bridgeport, Wyalusing

These trips are handled on a case by case basis. In general, we’ll pick you up downriver and bring you upriver. This process is somewhat flexible on the weekdays – however, weekends and in particular Saturdays in July and August we will NOT be able to meet you at a downriver takeout and transport you upriver on the front end of your trip, particularly on Saturday mornings.

Long Distance Trips – Wyalusing/Boscobel to Arena and Sauk City

These trips have a 10 AM and 2 PM departure/pickup time. It will not be possible to transport you on Saturday mornings. Give us a call and we can work out the details for your transport needs.

NOTE: We will not transport inflated inflatable craft and are not responsible if you decide you wish to transport your inflatable inflated.Trips greater than 45 miles are considered “long distance” trips. We have 2 departure times for these trips, 10 AM and 2 PM. These shuttles MUST leave on time; if they’re missed you‘ll need to catch the next one.

If you have ANY questions about this process, please give us a call at 608.375.5300.  Again, these shuttles must depart on time, please plan accordingly.

If you’re bringing a friend that needs to rent a boat, your transportation is ONLY $20 per person, call for additional details, 608.375.5300.
