About us

Over 25 years serving our community.


“The relationship between a kayak and its owner is a very personal one. Choosing a kayak should be no less of a personal experience. And more importantly, it should be FUN!"   - Kris Dombrowski, The Kayak Store


Great Lakes Docks & Decks and The Kayak Store is a small family- owned company operated by the husband and wife team of Wally and Kris Dombrowski that began in 1986. Our passion and experience for the water, coupled with our involvement and support of the community evolved into a business we have a passion for. Our store is located on the water in Clay township near Algonac with access to both St. Johns Marsh and Lake St. Clair - the perfect location for our business .


We are a marine store that caters to both the fun and functionality of living and being on the water. From marine docks, decks, hoists and ladders to kayaks, accessories, trips and events, we have been sharing our passion, experience and quality products and service for over 25 years. Our personal approach is simple: We treat our customers the same way we like to be treated, as individuals, not as a number. We offer quality name brand products at fair prices, followed up with terrific on-going service. We focus on building relationships with our customers who share the same interests, needs and passions we do, which makes running our business that much more enjoyable. Don't take our word for it though, speak to your neighbors or friends, chances are we've already worked for someone you know.


Put our years of experience to work for you. We are easy to find and only a phone call away. Contact us for the peace of mind you desire and deserve. Find out why our satisfied customers keep coming back and why they say "Give Kris and Wally a call, they'll take care of you and give you straight answers to all your questions".
