Had a great night out on the river. This provided us with a very enjoyable evening and a unique perspective of the bats. I would definitely do it again.

We had a great time on this kayak trip and seeing the bats was amazing! My friends and I don't have much experience with kayaking, but were comfortable with this trip, so don't be afraid to try it if you have never kayaked before. There were lockers to put our belongings in which is nice so you don't have to... More

I didn't really know what to expect when i booked this tour but it turned to be such a great time. This is really a unique way to really see & learn about the Mexican Bats. If you never kayaked before, no worries, Casey, the owner gives a great instructional and the kayaks are very stable. It was also awesome... More

How often can you go on a twilight kayaking adventure in the middle of a big city to see millions of spooky animals and learn some crazy history? The Live Love Paddle bat kayak tour was a great experience. I had a great view of the bats, and Casey pointed out Austin trivia. If I ever return to Austin I... More

All of a sudden after a long day, we finished the planned attractions early and thought, what now? We called Live Love Paddle, the owner was very friendly and pleasant on the phone and same in person. He was very accommodating despite a very short notice, especially accommodating of our 3 and 7 year old kids. He also knew enough... More

When I booked this trip for late Sept, I worried it may be too late in the season for seeing the bats. I needn't have worried! Our tour included my husband and I and one other person. She had not kayaked before, but easily caught on. The kayaks are very stable. Casey (owner and guide) was easy going and knowledgeable.... More

We had a blast doing the kayak bat trip. Good professional staff and fun kayak trip. We are not terribly physically fit, but it seemed like a good length and we weren't totally exhausted. Highly recommended (but bring a hat).

I loved this unique experience of kayaking at night. Casey is so friendly and accomodating. It was well worth the money. We had six in the group and everyone was happy. It even sprinkled at the end and no one cared.

I have done canoeing but it was my first time kayaking. It was an amazing experience. Casey is awesome guide, friendly, made me feel comfortable even it was my first time. I had fun seeing the bats and good information about the city from Casey. Definitely will recommend this place :)
