Great experience! Super friendly and knowledgeable staff with outstanding hospitality! Will definitely kayak again with Ocmulgee Outdoor Expeditions in the future!!
We had a great experience paddling the Ocmulgee thanks to Kathleen. We were picked up and met at the end on time. Instructions we were very good. And we were treated with cookies and fresh squeezed lemonade at the end of our paddle. I definitely recommend OOE for your paddling needs in Macon.
It was great! Our group had a wonderful experience on the river. Kathleen offered suggestions on places to visit in Macon, gave us cookies and lemonade after the trip and was all around wonderful.
This was a very relaxing way to experience some of the beauty of the Macon area with my grandson. Kathleen and her fellow tour guide (sorry I didn't catch his name!) were friendly and informative, made the trip very convenient and pleasant. Even gave a great suggestion for a quick tasty and afforda blelunch at nearby El Sombrero - Mmmmm. Hope to join you again along with my son for a longer tour!
We had a great time on the "Old Muddy" with OOC. All of us felt comfortable in the river regardless of how much experience paddling we have. Cookies and lemonade at the end are a fantastic touch. Thank you!
The whole experience was enjoyable. The hospitality and guidance provided by Kathleen was awesome!
We had a wonderful time today! The river was the perfect place to unplug and unwind. Thank you!! Amanda Cook
Kathleen did an excellent job of taking care of us on our float down the Ocmulgee. She provided transportation to the starting point, gave us tips on how to more easily maneuver the kayaks and had the kayaks ready and waiting for us in the river. The journey down the river was very pleasant and peaceful. No doubt we will do it again on a lazy summer afternoon. Highly recommend!
Customer service - none better. Took the time to make sure that the boats fit the size of the person.
