Congress Ave Bridge kayak tour...Must do!

We loved this tour! After a hot, hot day, it was great to be on the water. Our tour guide, Tabitha, was fantastic. We kayaked around the area and she shared interesting facts about the lake and the skyline in Austin. Seeing the bats fly out was incredible...nothing gross or scary about it!!!

Senior kayakers!

We enjoyed the trip, I had seen the bats from the bridge, but much more impressive from beneath the bridge. Stephen was a fun, friendly, knowledgeable guide. It was a lot of fun, nice warm water, and a gentle current. Definitely will go again.

BEST Kayak Experience EVER!

Very informative not just of Lady Bird Lake and the bats, but helpful telling us other things to enjoy in Austin and the surrounding area. They really looked out for us, made sure we had the best view, and took their time. We were never rushed to do anything!

Kayaking on Lady Bird Lake

Cody was an incredible, energetic, charismatic, sweetheart of a kayaking guide. He took my mom and I around Lady Bird Lake and made sure we were both comfortable, having fun, and really getting to see the sites. We had such a great time. I highly recommend it.
