Full Moon Bat Paddle
August 16, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
This Bat Paddle falls just after the Full Moon so we created a Full Moon Bat Paddle. This will be one of the best Bat Paddles of the year as the Full Moon will help you see the bats more clearly and this late in the season the bat emergence will be significantly larger than earlier in the season.
Paddle in one of our kayaks solo or with a friend 2 miles to the famous Congress Avenue Bridge, home to the largest urban bat population in the world. Watch and listen as over 1.5 million bats fly overhead on their way to their nightly feeding. This is a 4-mile round-trip kayak excursion is accompanied by our excellent Rowing Dock Guides. Along the way, you will be able to take in the sights such as the city skyline, the Austin power plant, Auditorium Shores, and much more. All viewed from one of the most serene places in town, Lady Bird Lake.
