ReviewsFun for All!

"Live Love Paddle features my favorite tour in Austin...the Full Moon Music Paddle where you kayak out to Snake Island, listen to some live music, and then kayak back to HQ in the light of the full moon. Their nightly Bat Watching Tours are a close second and the most adventurous way to see the Austin bats. Bat watching tours are the #1 Experience in our Things to do guide."

Austin City Guide

"Gavin, our tour guide, was funny and very informative. They are very organized and provide everything you need. It was spectacular witnessing millions of bats darken the city skies from below. And the night kayaking was incredibly serene. By far an absolute must. I would definitely do this again."

"I had a great time exploring the Lady Bird River (aka The Colorado River). My tour guide was very chill and had lots of fun facts about Austin. I appreciate the local recommendation and hospitality. I definitely recommend touring the city by kayak, it's a great workout and experience you won't forget!"

Great time seeing the bats from kayaks. Great leader Uncle Dan shared his expertise and ensured we all had a great time. Highly recommend an evening paddle to see the bats. The weather was perfect and we all had a great time."
