Congress Avenue Bat Bridge Kayak Tour in Austin
USD 55.00
Watch more than a million bats fly out of the Congress Avenue Bridge on an evening kayak tour of Austin that’s timed to catch the spectacular natural show. Observing the Congress Avenue Bridge bats from a kayak means you don’t have to find a spot among the crowds on the riverbank, giving you a front-row seat as the Mexican free-tailed bats take to the sky.

Don't get lost on the water

The tour guide was a lot of fun and assured everyone of the simplicity of the tour. He offered bits and pieces of historical information. The bats were pouring out of the bridge.
