What you'll do
We will provide everything you need for this experience, even the snacks! This is a private, guided tour of Stone Mountain Lake, then a trip inside the park to see the monument and some attractions. We can accommodate up to 5 guests; we have (4) one-person kayaks and (1) two-person canoe. If there are elderly, inexperienced, or children under 10 in your group, we recommend that they ride in the canoe with Troy. We’ll start by meeting you at the entrance of Stone Mountain Park, 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. We will then continue into Stone Mountain Park, where we can watch glass blowing demonstrations, a laser/fireworks show, historic exhibits, walk up to the summit, or whatever you may find interesting within the park. **If you would like to have more than 5 people in your tour group, or prefer a different date/time, just let us know- we are happy to accommodate.**

Elisabeth & Troy
Troy and I host this experience together- Troy has been a paddling (canoe, kayak, tandem kayak, stand up paddle-board, tube) and fishing and fly fishing tour guide for more than 10 years in the metro Atlanta area. He has extensive knowledge about the landscape, paddling techniques, local wildlife, and local Native American history. I have studied Southern history and Stone Mountain in particular. I will ensure that you are fully outfitted, from bug spray to a sun/fishing hat and take photos throughout the trip. We are both CPR and first aid certified, and Troy has multiple paddling certifications. This location is especially important to us, as Stone Mountain is our home.
