The staff was incredibly helpful, the bikes were easy to ride and super neat, and the view of the bats at Congress Ave was spectacular! I wouldn't have chosen to have this experience any other way.

We had a great time. We were able to show up early and ride longer than an hour!! Literally saw the bats fly above our heads. It's unique and a fun activity to do in Austin. Friendly worker and very helpful.

The team at Austin Water Bikes was great to work with. Do an evening tour or rental to get great views of the Austin skyline in the evening.
