Best paddling outfitter around! A large fleet of good sit-on-top or sit-in kayaks and stand up paddle boards. Go solo or with a great guide (we had Casey who was super knowledgeable, friendly and fun to spend a few hours with! Casey and Beverly are fabulous business owner-operators and were easy to work with. Lockers on site (free) allow customers... More

What a beautiful evening! Full moon, glassy smooth Lady Bird Lake, good friends for the kayak trip and a private island at the halfway point with live music provided by a local cool vibe band. We were encouraged to bring our own snacks and beverages and the kayak guides made a fire and supplied marshmallows for roasting.

While in Austin check out Live Love Paddle. They are super friendly, informative, and fun. We did the bat tour, and it was absolutely worth the paddle. If you haven't seen something like this, do yourself a favor and go.

I didn't even know about Austin's bats (even though I've been here on business before) but when I learned about it, I knew I had to fit it into my trip even if it was last minute. But when I saw the crowds of people standing on the bridge fighting for a good viewing spot, I knew there had to... More

From the moment we arrived in the shop we felt at ease. After all-we are going to view over a million bats flying over our heads. Our guides made it a magical experience! Our guide provided really interesting facts about bats and the city architecture. We even got to see a little baby bat swim! The skyline in both day... More

We had a great time paddling today! Took our 20 year old daughter to experience our new found hobby with us! Thanks for having paddles when others were sold out!

The tour was awesome. Kayaks rule, Austin rules, bats rule, history rules. What's not to love? The tour was chill as hell and I learned some facts. Worth.

Awesome group tour! Dan did a great job informing us about the bats, Austin, and conspiracy theories. It was a lot of fun good for a family! We are glad we did not do the boat tour!

We did a 9:30am tour that last about 2.5 hours. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny while on land, explaining how kayaks work. What he didn't do was explain how the tour was going to work. This consisted of paddling ~.5 miles, then stopping for 10 minutes for some info, paddling .5 miles and stopping for 15 minutes for... More
