Friends and I took the bat kyak trip and found it to be a very fun experience. The river was lovely, the bat viewing perfect from under the bridge, the guides irreverent and fun, and kayaking in the dark was really neat.

My first time visiting Austin and it was recommended we do the bat tour. Our tour guide, Dan was fun and informative. Seeing and learning about the bats was amazing - would definitely do this tour again!

We had a great time on this tour! We did a tandem kayak (not recommended for beginners) and the trip down to the bridge was leisurely and fun. The group was a bit spread out as there were many people with different abilities but we...More

I don't know if they have gift certificates but I would highly recommend at least 2 kayaks (it's harder to paddle and move around in a tandem) so even 3 would be a good idea. Call them when you get a moment and ask bc they... More
