During the summer and early fall months( June 6th – August 31st) Madison School & Community Recreation (MSCR) offers 90-minute pontoon boat rides on a drop-in basis on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The fee is $5 per person (children 3 and under are free).
All trips begin and end at the Tenney Park Boat Pier, 1615 Sherman Avenue. A free informational flyer about Madison area lakes is available at the boathouse.
Reservations are not required for the drop-in rides: It’s first come, first served. You pay at the dock.
In addition to the drop-in rides, MSCR offers a variety of specialty pontoon boat trips, including Harry Potter Days, Social History Tours, and Sunday Breakfast/Brunch Tours. Prices for these specialty tours range from $10-$25.
