August Floating

Posted on August 11, 2017 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (2)
Hello fellow floaters. The summer is going fast and I have been helping lots of people enjoy a float. The 16th is an AARP float. An AARP rep will give a presentation on life reimagined and a 2 hour float is after that. On the 17th, I will have a booth at Hackley Park in Muskegon, for a health and wellness event. The 19th is the last Muskegon AREA Community Paddle. It will be at Harbour Towne Beach, at 8am. I also have my sunset floats every Wed. and Sat. evenings at 6pm. If you want more info on any of these events, call me at 231-740-0227. Thanks and happy floating.

June is jumpin

Hello Fellow floaters. I am now fully open for the season. I have plenty of float times available during the week and the weekends are filling up. Please call and reserve your kayaks as that will insure availability. The community paddle for Saturday June 10th is a free event. We float down a easy stretch of the Muskegon river for a couple hours. Go to the Muskegon AREA community paddles facebook page for all the details. Thanks and happy floating!

High Water

Hello fellow floaters. The Muskegon river is very high and unsafe for novice kayakers. It will probably be a couple more weeks until I can open for the season. This Saturday is the first of my adopt-a-highway cleanups. Check my Adopt-A Highway page for all the details and join in the fun. Saturday the 22nd of April (Earth Day),I will be at the earth expo in Montague. Come check out all the info booths and earth day activities. Montague High School from 11am to 4pm. Thanks and happy floating, Guy.

Full Moon Floats

Posted on March 25, 2017 at 9:15 PM Comments comments (0)
Hello fellow floaters. If you are planning on bringing your own kayaks to the full moon floats, be careful. There is no parking lot at the launch point. It is a dirt road that dead ends into the river. The ditches on both sides have water in them. The sides of the road are soft and mushy. YOU WILL GET STUCK IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL. I have seen people need a tow truck to get out, so be careful when parking. I am not sure how many will show up, but it could be a lot, so be patient if the road is full of vehicles.

Community Paddles

Posted on March 7, 2017 at 7:50 PM Comments comments (0)
Hello fellow floaters. I have taken over the Muskegon AREA Community Paddles from Roger Zuidema and Dave Alexander. These are paddles that are open/free to anyone with a paddle craft. I have set up a facebook page to provide info on the paddles. I am also using the paddles as a fundraiser for the Ocean Centre of Muskegon. They provide education and activities for children and adults in the area of ocean animals and eco systems Please check out the Muskegon AREA Community Paddles facebook page and plan to attend the paddles on Muskegon Lake and river. We will have a reverse drawing for a new kayak and other prizes after the last float. Tickets are $5 each or 3 for $10 with proceeds going to the Ocean Centre. If you attend all 3 paddles you get a free entry in the drawing. Join in the fun and explore different parts of Muskegon lake and river. Thanks and happy floating!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!

Posted on February 28, 2017 at 10:25 AM Comments comments (0)
Hello fellow floaters, I am extremely grateful for all the calls I received for my full moon floats. I am sold out of every date for the full moon floats. I have added dates on either side of the scheduled dates for groups of 20 who called from all over the Midwest. I hope the weather cooperates with clear skies, so the floats can take place. The poster of the full moon floats was shared almost 30,000 times on facebook and viewed over 2 million times. Thanks to Jeff Dana of "Float MY Event" for designing the poster. People are saying it jumps off the screen and it sure did work. Thanks again for all the interest and happy floating, Guy.

2017 Season

Posted on January 27, 2017 at 4:45 PM Comments comments (0)
Hello fellow floaters, I will open for the season around May 1st. I have posted the dates for the full moon floats on my main page. The first one is May 10th. You can signup for any of the floats at anytime, but they sell out quickly, so do not wait too long. If the weather is bad on the night of the float, it will be rescheduled for the next night. I also have 3 community paddles scheduled for this summer. They are free to attend and are on June 10th, July 29th and Aug. 19th. See my Muskegon Community Paddle facebook page for more info on those. Also, I am starting a Wed evening singles float and Sat. evening couples float in June. They are only $10 per person for a 2 hour float. See my "services" page on my Guy's Ultimate Kayak Service facebook page for more info on those floats. Thanks and happy floating!

October Floating Phrase That Saves

Posted on September 24, 2016 at 12:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Hello fellow floaters. It sure was a great summer. I truly enjoyed helping everyone take a float on the Muskegon river. I am still open untill November 1st. For the month of October, if you say "Fall floating is fun" when you call to reserve a float, I will rent the kayaks for half price. This offer is good on up to 4 kayaks per float. Thanks and happy floating!

August / September Floating

Posted on August 23, 2016 at 10:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Hello fellow floaters, for the months of August and September, I will take $5 off a kayak rental if you book a float for Monday thru Friday and mention this blog post. Up to 4 rentals can get the discount, so a family of 4 can save $20 on their float. Not valid on Labor day. Thanks and happy floating.
