Pea Ohana Water Sports to offer kayak trips

Bear Davis stand amid some of the kayaks that will soon be plying the waters of the Muskingum and Licking rivers from Pea Ohana Water Sports on Muskingum Avenue in Zanesville.

ZANESVILLE – Bear Davis has a vision: A colorful armada of kayaks and innertubes making their way down the Muskingum and Licking rivers, and drawing attention to Zanesville’s waterfront.

Davis and his team expect to open Pea Ohana Water Sports in the space below Weasel Boy Brewing on Muskingum Avenue this week, offering kayak and canoe rides on two routes through Zanesville.

Named in honor of Hawaii’s famous North Shore of Oahu, a global surfing hotspot and a favorite place of Davis and his wife, Marissa, Pea Ohana means Bear Family in Hawaiian. 

Davis, whose watery roots stretch back to Ohio’s canal days, says he wants to create a synergy with the city.

“You have a brewery here, you have a restaurant, what kind of vibrant river town could the city become? We are the dynamite for that, start the fire, lets go,” Davis said.
