End of Season Thanks

Posted on November 14, 2018 at 12:50 AM Comments comments (0)
Hello fellow floaters, the season has ended for this year. Thanks to everyone who utilized my livery service. I enjoyed helping all of you take a float on the Muskegon river. I will start the 2019 season as soon as the weather permits, which is usually around May 1st. I will post the dates and start taking reservations for the Full Moon Floats in March of 2019. I am also working on adding an online booking feature on my website. Thanks again and see you next year.

record rains

Posted on August 29, 2018 at 11:50 AM Comments comments (1)
Hello fellow floaters. We have had 8 inches of rain in the last 3 days. The river is up a couple feet and faster. It is also a little muddy, but will clear up and go back down within a week. I am open all Labor Day weekend, and every day after until November 1st. My Wednesday evening sunset floats are $10 per person and start at 6pm. The last highway cleanup is September 22nd. Volunteer and get a free kayak rental or lunch at the Sportspage Grill. September 25th is the full moon float for that month. Call me about any of these events and happy floating.

The Changing River

Posted on July 21, 2018 at 2:45 PM Comments comments (0)
Hello fellow floaters. The middle float is changing its course. It has become blocked below the cabins by sand and trees. It is taking a new path north to Cedar creek. If you take the turn on the south branch marked North Branch, you must also take a sharp right after you get past the cabins, and go to Cedar creek, and take it down to the highway. You can also take the south branch past the North Branch turn sign to the next right turn that has a sign that says Cedar Creek Cutoff. It starts out fast and narrow and crosses several trees before connecting to the old north branch section below the blocked section. There is also a third path from the south branch to the north branch. It is further down the south branch and connects with the north branch at the US31 highway bridge. I am in process of signing the various paths the river has created. Look for them and enjoy your float.

Summer is Here!

Hello fellow floaters. The river is down to normal after a spring that saw high water from dam releases upstream, and heavy rain. The lower section is still a foot high as Muskegon lake and Lake Michigan are near record highs. It is flowing about 4-5 mph, and the middle section is starting to get some very shallow sections. You may have to do the butt shimmy or get out and pull your kayak thru the sandy spots if you are larger in size, and choose that section. My Wednesday evening sunset floats have started. For only $10, take the lower float and watch the sun set as you drift down the river. Every Wednesday (weather permitting)from 7-9pm. Only the first 13 people who call 231-740-0227 and sign up each week get the half price deal. My Full Moon Floats have all sold out except for Oct. 24th. I have waiting lists for all the dates as people often cancel. If interested in going, give me a call and get on a waiting list. The dates are listed on my home page near the bottom. Thanks and happy floating, Guy.

April Snow!!!

Posted on April 16, 2018 at 5:10 PM Comments comments (0)
Hello fellow floaters. We have received about 3 inches of snow/sleet/freezing rain the last few days. Everything is coated in ice. I had to reschedule the adopt-a-highway for this Saturday, the 21st. Please join in and help me cleanup a 2 mile section of M120. Details on my adopt-a-highway page. I will open as soon as the weather warms up. I need to check the middle section for tree debris before I can put people on that section. The river is up a couple inches and should stay that way, unless we get lots of rain upstream. Thanks and happy floating, Guy.

Spring is Just Around the Corner

Hello fellow floaters, thanks for all the calls for the full moon floats. They are now all sold out except for the October 24th date. I hope the weather cooperates and all the floats can take place. They are a fun event. I will be in the St. Patrick's day parade, in downtown Muskegon on Saturday March 17th. Come down and watch the parade. It starts at 11am near Hackley park. Bring a non-perishable food item to donate to a local food bank. On March 30th, I will be at the Muskegon Lumberjacks hockey game, putting on hockeyak races after the first period. Come down to the L.C. Walker arena and see the kayaks race on the ice. April 14th is the first adopt-a-highway cleanup. Join me in helping keep Michigans highways free of litter. Anyone who volunteers, gets a free kayak rental this summer. Details are on my Adopt-A-Highway page. Thanks and happy floating.

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!
