On this incredibly popular tour, you’ll take a 2 mile paddle to the famous Congress Avenue Bridge where you’ll watch and listen to over 1.5 million bats flying overhead en route to their nightly feeding. The 4-mile round-trip is accompanied by one of our excellent Rowing Dock Guides who will also teach you about prominent architecture across the skyline, the Austin power plant, Auditorium Shores, and more. The tour is approximately two hours but please allow three hours, as the bats dictate our timing!Learn More
Eco & Historical Tour
Our guided eco and historical paddle tour is an unmatched lesson on Lady Bird Lake, Zilker Park, Downtown, and Austin as a whole. It’s also a great way to learn about Texas wildlife that only the locals know. Plus (whether you like it or not), you’ll probably pick up a few new dad jokes along the way.Learn More
