My friends and I planned our trip in Austin to specifically be outdoors and see things the way locals do. Seeing the millions of bats emerge from under the bridge at sunset was incredible. Our tour guide was knowledgeable about the history of the bats and the area in general. The kayaks had back support which was a first and... More

It's been a couple years since I last kayaked with Live Love Paddle and had another wonderful night. Casey is an awesome guide and we had a fantastic outing to see the bats. Well worth the time and the money. A perfect night.

My best friend and I were visiting Austin and discovered Live, Love, Paddle while trying to look for things to do. From the time we stepped foot in the door until the time we left, we had SO much fun! Our tour guide was absolutely amazing and hilarious! Definitely not your average tour guide. Every part of this experience was... More

I would forsure repeat this trip. I can not believe I've been to Austin so many times and never took this tour. It was amazing and I will be kayaking again soon!

I took a group of coworkers on the bat bridge your this year while in Austin for a conference. This is a great way to spend an evening. A unique experience with a great guide. Interesting information presented by a personable and humorous tour guide (Casey). This is an experience that many different people can enjoy and should be a... More

My friends and I have taken this tour with Live Love Paddle twice now and we loved it both times. Casey is an excellent tour guide - he's knowledgeable, never boring, and doesn't forget to throw in some humor along the way. You won't regret spending an evening on this tour and you'll learn more than you ever considered knowing... More

My wife and I recently visited from Seattle and wanted to check out the bats. Bats via kayak is the way to go, and I'd highly recommend Live Love Paddle. Our guide, Dan, was friendly, helpful, and shared a lot of interesting info on bats as well as the history of the city. He also had some good recommendations on... More

My husband and I took the Bat Bridge tour and loved it! We have never kayaked before but it was quite easy and very peaceful on this lake which doesn't allow powerboats. We had some headwinds coming back so our arms got a good workout but it wasn't overly strenuous. We got a little wet in our shorts but felt... More

The area is beautiful and the experience is great for people of all ages. We had a 60 y/o, 29 y/o, and a 9y/o in our party and everybody had a blast. The store front is set inside some nice apartments on Lady Bird Lake and parking was free and super close. As soon as we arrived Elizabeth and Jeremy... More
