Debbie and John Connor open doors to Boyne River Adventures

(From the Petoskey News-Review) Debbie and John Connor opened the doors to Boyne River Adventures on July 20, offering kayak trips down its namesake river and on Lake Charlevoix. “We recently moved here permanently, though we have been visiting every chance we could these last seven years. We knew we had to find something to do, in terms of work, and we knew we wanted it to be seasonal and fun,” said Debbie. “Since we have been kayak enthusiasts for 20 years, and we wanted to bring awareness of the great opportunities to enjoy the outdoors to the area, we decided on kayak trips down the Boyne, which really hasn‘t been done until now,” said John. The two-hour trips cost $33 for a single kayak or $66 for a tandem boat. The put-in site is at Dam Road, and takeout is at Veterans Park in downtown Boyne City. Included in the trip is a sack lunch provided by a local deli and delivered at the end of the trip. This lunch includes a deli sandwich, bag of cookies, chips aSave as Draftnd a pop or water.
