My husband and I rode in a tandem kayak..........DO NOT do it.......unless you have a child. Our guide Dave was great in helping us figure out how not to go in circles and run into bushes, We finally found our stride and loved every minute of it! A great trip and a must do!

I was in Austin for 3 weeks on business, and this was the highlight of my trip. I love to kayak, but being in the city alone I didn't really have the guts to just go out on my own. I had heard about the bats, and wanted to see them as well, so this was two birds with one... More

I am a teacher and I had read about the Congress Ave. bat colony with my second grade class so I definitely wanted to see this while we visited Austin! I found Live, Love, Paddle online and we were so happy that we did. Our tour guide was Casey, and he was very relaxed, which meant that our tour was... More

My wife and I went on the Congress Avenue Bridge Bats Tour through Live Love Paddle and had a great time. Our guide Casey was very relaxed and was focused on letting everyone have a good time. The trip down to the bridge was made even better by the discussion of the City that Casey had with us telling us... More

My husband and I rented a kayak and took it out on the lake. We explored indigo island and enjoyed the lovely views of the city. The service was great and friendly. Either wear your swimsuit or take dry shorts. Your butt WILL get wet!

What a great experience! I was instantly greeted by Casey's wife who was very friendly and accommodating. The bats were spectacular and Casey was very knowledgeable about the history of Austin and about the bats. He was very helpful about recommending places to go for food and entertainment in Austin and surrounding areas. This was certainly a top-notch Austin experience.... More

Had a wonderful afternoon on the lake. Yelp said their hours were 'til 5 pm, that's why we rushed there in the afternoon visiting from out of town. If we knew they opened until much later we would definitely go later to see the bat scene.

Thank you for the review, Sam. Sorry there was confusion about our closing hours. We close in the afternoon/evening for rentals, so we can get our boats ready for our evening tour to see the bats. Due to varying times of sunset and the bats' departure, we do occasionally slightly shift our tour times, and thus our rental hours. We... More
