What you'll do

** If you are new to Airbnb, use this link for $15 off an experience and $40 towards housing: https://abnb.me/e/3aolgZ25k2 (you must create a new account) We also offer housing and discount our experiences by 15% to our guests: https://abnb.me/eQ9PDe1Nl4 ** We will provide everything you need for this experience, even the snacks! This is a private, guided tour of Stone Mountain Lake, with the option to continue into the park. We can accommodate up to 4 guests; we have (4) one-person kayaks and (1) two-person, tandem kayak. Many of our guests have never kayaked; we are very accustomed to new adventurers. We’ll start by meeting you at the entrance of Stone Mountain Park (saving you $20), then park our vehicles at the lake drop-in. We will trek around the lake for about 2-3 hours, looking for wildlife, learning about the history of Stone Mountain, and enjoying the scenery. At the end of the lake tour, Troy and I will pull your boat up to the boat ramp and assist you out of your vessel. You may then continue into Stone Mountain Park, where you can watch glass blowing demonstrations, a laser/fireworks show, historic exhibits, walk to the summit, or whatever you may find interesting within the park. To request a different time/date, please click on the “Contact Host” button below, then “Request Availability,” or send us a message; we are happy to accommodate.
