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 :)

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

The staff were so friendly and nice! I felt completely comfortable paddling out on my own to see the bats and learned a lot of really interesting things. Definitely a must when you're in austin!
