Had a group of 13 friends visit Austin. We booked the Architectural Skyline Kayak Tour for Friday evening (11-06-2021). Travis was our tour guide and he did an excellent job. Although not technically a bat tour, we also saw the bats fly out of the Congress Street (?) Bridge at sunset. I’ll address some questions my group had before going: (i) there are tandem kayaks available, but they are not recommended because you have to synchronize your paddle strokes; (ii) the single kayaks are fairly stable and no one flipped over; (iii) you will get wet, not drenched, but it’s hard not to get water splashed onto yourself after each paddle stroke; (iv) it’s more of your shoes and lower body that get wet, instead of your upper body (our guide did appear to stay dry); (v) it’s manageable to have your phone out taking pictures and video while paddling and interacting with friends; and (vi) it takes some effort, but isn’t strenuous.

Travis was an excellent guide! Personable and Informative. I appreciated all the history and facts he had to share with us. The tour was relaxing, not rushed. And even with a large group, my husband and I felt like we were just kayaking with friends!

We had a blast on the bay bridge kayak tour. We took our 2 teenage daughters and they thought it was great as well. Travis was very knowledgeable and kept our group entertained. It was a great night hearing and then seeing all the bats drop and fly away. Definitely an experience you want to have in your lifetime.

This was an excellent tour overall. Travis was knowledgeable, gave great local history, allowed the kids to have fun and stay safe. We had 27 high schoolers. They loaded us quickly and safely, everyone had a great time! They recommended Cidercade for dinner prior to the adventure-big win! Easy to work with and very responsive when I had questions. I would gladly take another group out with Lone Star Kayaks!

We had an awesome time on this kayak tour! Our guide Travis not only made us feel comfortable on the lake but was full of historical anecdotes an awesome stories and facts about the vets. Would highly recommend for anyone who has an evening in Austin to go see the bats this way.
