Memorial Day Weekend kicks off the summer season at The Edgewater! No Boat, No Problem. Our summer boating program, in partnership with SkipperBud’s, offers three ways to play:
- Edgewater Urban Outings: our walk-up boat rental program available through SkipperBud’s at The Edgewater Pier. Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend every Friday, Saturday and Sunday (weather dependent). For more information, contact SkipperBud’s: 608.246.2628 or view rates here.
- Edgewater Voyages: the best of boating for small and large groups offering full and half day pontoon and sport boat rentals. Enjoy a variety of add-ons to customize your group outing—including options like a boat captain or ski, tube, and board packages. To arrange a group outing contact our Private Dining Manager, ChinaMoon Crowell, firstname.lastname@example.org or 608.535.8174.
- SkipperBud’s Ride Nights: Back for a second year, beginning June 12, SkipperBud’s will offer complimentary boat rides from The Edgewater Pier every 2nd and 4th Tuesday night! After the boat ride, head to The Grand Plaza for Movies on the Water, a free outdoor movie night! See full lineup here.
The Edgewater sits in the heart of downtown Madison offering one of the only public access points to beautiful Lake Mendota. You’ll find 40 public boat slips, live music, pop-up pier parties and more. Join us by boat or by land.
