The city is a step closer to finishing three kayak launch sites in Albany.

The one near the Georgia Power Dam is now complete.

Workers are finishing the two spots on the Flint River downtown.

Josh Lobor who runs Kayak Attack Adventure says the new launch sites will give folks more options for kayak trips.

“The Flint definitely needed it, we didn't have a stop here, to stop downtown if you started by the dam, so once downtown kind of builds up, people can use these stops, float a couple hours, come visit and get back on their kayak and finish their trips,” says Josh Lorbor, with Kayak Attackers.

Kayak Attack Adventure offers kayak and canoe rentals and fishing tours for those who want to get to know the river better.

You can set up a trip by calling the Lorbors at 229-669-1259.
