Hello fellow floaters, the groundhog saw his shadow, so an early spring may be instore. Let's hope so, because then we can get on the river sooner. Lake Michigan is going to be at or near record highs all summer, so the lower sections of the river will also be high, but still floatable. I plan to open May 1st if conditions allow. The first full moon float is May 8th, and tickets will go up to $30 per person on May 1st. Purchase yours today! I will be posting the dates for my adopt-a-highway cleanup, as soon as the state gives them to me. Join in and get free kayak rentals! The world record paddle has 220 people signed up. We need another 100 to break the record of 329, so sign up today and help get Muskegon in the record books. Free tickets are available on Eventbrite or call me at 231-740-0227 to register. Thanks and happy floating.

Hi fellow floaters, the July fourth week was great for paddlers. The weather was hot and the water levels have gone down in some areas. The Holton-Duck Lake road boat launch is back to normal levels. Mill Iron rd launch is about 1 ft higher than normal. The Creston rd. site is still about 2 feet higher and you must cary your kayak around the road closed barricade, and about 25yards to the deep water. The parking lot at the Veterans park is partially flooded as the water is still 3 feet higher than normal. With Lake Michigan levels at record highs, it will be awhile before that area sees improvement. The lot is useable but be prepared to walk in some water in the parking lot to get to your car from the kayaks. Only ankle deep and warm. I have my adopt-a-highway this Saturday the 13th and will accept any volunteers that want to help clean up a section of M120, near my business. Just call or text 231-740-0227 to sign up and receive a free lunch after the cleanup, or a free kayak rental. Thanks and happy floating!

Hello fellow floaters. The river is still a foot or 2 higher than normal, but it is safe to float. I am open everyday, so plan a float and let me get you on the water. Customers have been seeing an eagle and other predator birds, along with cranes, turtles, geese and muskrats. The middle section is deeper than usual, so there are not very many spots to stop and swim. If we do not get any rain for a week, it may go down and expose some sand bars. The river is moving about 5-6 mph until it reaches the US31 highway bridges. Then it slows to about 2mph. Saturday morning the 29th of June is the first community paddle for 2019. Bring your own kayak or rent one from me for $5, and join in the fun. We meet at Mona Lake Park at 8am and paddle from 8:30-10:30 around Mona Lake. 125 people have RSVP that they are going. That many kayaks will be a sight to see. Thanks and happy paddling!

Hello fellow floaters, I have integrated an online booking company Fare Harbor into my website. You can now book a kayak float at anytime 24/7 by clicking on the pictures of different floats available on the main page, or the calander on the prices page. There is a 6% booking fee added to the prices I charge for each kayak rental. You can still call me direct and ask questions or book a float if you desire and save the booking fee. On another topic, only 2 weeks left untill the Full Moon Floats are available for booking. They will sell out fast so get a group together, and then visit my website on March 1st at 10am to book your float. Hint: I have to manually change the booking status for each months float, one at a time, so I will start changing them a little before 10am. I will start with the last float on Oct 13th, and work backwords to the May 18th float. So, if you want to go to one of the later in the year floats, start looking around 9:55am. Thanks and happy floating!
