Wow! What an experience! We would HIGHLY recommend a Live Love Paddle kayak/bat trip to anyone and everyone visiting Austin! Seeing thousands of bats swarm out in giant ribbons from under Congress Avenue Bridge was a huge thrill, and we couldn't have had a better vantage point. But seeing the bats leave is just part of the adventure. It was equally thrilling to paddle out on Lady Bird lake and see the beautiful Texas sunset. Although we were free to paddle around, everyone kept their kayaks close to the group so they could hear Casey talk about the bats and the area's history, which was both informative and entertaining!
The whole adventure, from start to finish, was great. Casey and Beverley did a great job of making sure everyone was safe and that they knew how to handle their kayak. There were adults and children on our trip, and nobody had any problems. In fact, everyone had a giant smile on their face, ourselves included, the whole time!
This was definitely the highlight of our vacation!

My wife and I had a great experience do the Live, Love, Paddle tour. The guide was friendly and informative. We actually went with a big group and one of the ladies was having a problem kayaking ( i just thought she was out of shape) he actually towed her and her kayak around for the whole experience, which I thought was very nice. I would recommend this tour for anybody. There were young kids boy and girl about 12 or 13 not having a problem kayaking by themselves.

Such a nice tour. The tour guide/ owner of Live Love Paddle was very friendly and informative about Austin. Once we were in the water and paddling, he gave us a bunch of fun facts about Austin. Since the bats were flying out of Congress Bridge sporadically throughout the night, he offered to take some people back to shore while others can stay to watch/ paddle a bit longer.

The place is right by Joe's Crab shack and the tour includes a coupon for a free appetizer w/ a purchase of an entree so this is a great location to eat after the tour.
