This was my first kayaking experience and I loved it! The guys there are helpful and friendly, and the price is reasonable. On the weekend, the single kayak rental is $15 + $10 per hour after the first, but the cost is prorated to the nearest 15 minutes so you don't have to be like "OMG 10 MINUTES BEFORE THE... More

The kayaking tour to watch the bats emerge at dusk is amazing, just avoid looking up with your mouth open!! The staff were really friendly, and made us feel welcome. The guide was very knowledgable and she enjoyed getting to know everyone, as well as feeding us with facts about Austin and the bats that nest under Congress bridge. Just... More

Great outing on Town Lake. Live Love Paddle is well organized, responsive and caring. There is easy and free parking. It is a short stroll from the office to the water. The boats were terrific and the launch guides were great. Be sure and ask about the Paddle Boarding Dog! It was a beautiful kayak ride on the lake. We... More

They are located in a complex of apartments, and strip mall type place. Don't let that deter you. Parking was free inside a covered garage. The people who work here are very friendly and helpful. We had to walk a bit on a hill to get to the lake. Once down there the kayaks were waiting. We paddled off to... More

We looked for something out of the norm to do on Sunday and the ideal weather (92 and sunny in Oct) was a logical choice to be on the lake in Austin. Several places in town offer Kayak rentals so it was simply a matter of right place right timing and since Live Love Paddle is next to a sports... More

My husband and I spent a delightful 2+ hours on the water with Live Love Paddle. We took the 10:30 a.m. Urban Kayaking Tour of Austin and had a wonderful, leisurely time paddling around in the sun. It was very relaxed and fun, and we felt we were in good hands with our friendly tour guide. Live Love Paddle provide... More

I took a kayak tour on Lady Bird lake behind Zilker Park to listen to the Foo Fighters while they played ACL. It was amazing! Downtown is beautiful from the lake. Our guide Tolly was super helpful. They even let me borrow a cooler for my drinks. I highly recommend Live Love Paddle if you're visiting Austin!

Yall must check out Live Love Paddle if you are in Austin. Take a break from Austin's busy night life and check these guys out! The kayak trip to watch the bat tour is totally rad and very informative. They let you take your own pace up the Lake and explore (just watch out for the row teams practicing) and... More

Decided to try this tour to take a break from the boozy nightlife and football mania. It was better than expected. Being on the river was sublime - cool, quiet, peaceful. We ended up with a fairly large group and decided to take the "divorce-court" double kayak - no problem! The river is gentle and made for easy kayaking. We... More
