Macon, GA --  Georgia Kayak celebrates its grand opening on Tuesday, October 4 at 3 p.m. at 487 Second Street. 

That's according to a Main Street Macon news release.

Josh Howell loves getting on the river about 9 a.m. on a Saturday morning and spending a lazy day swimming, kayaking and enjoying the great outdoors.  So an outdoor outfitter business was a perfect extension for his professional life.  Howell says, “Downtown Macon was a natural location because of the proximity of the Ocmulgee River and the Riverwalk.  I want people to experience the river and not forget all of the beautiful natural resources we have in Middle Georgia.”  He has a working relationship with Ocmulgee Expeditions owners Brian and Stephen Adams to further enhance what they are offering with their river trips.

Georgia Kayak will offer new and used kayaks, canoes, outdoor apparel and footwear.  In addition, Howell can place specialty outdoor orders.  “I want to provide anything a customer needs to for a fun day on the river.  If I don’t have it in the store I can get it from one of my vendors,” says Howell.

Rentals will start at $25 per day and $40 for the weekend.  Hours at Georgia Kayak will be Tuesday – Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Sunday from 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.  Hours on Mondays are by appointment only.  Hours of operation may change during different seasons.
