Watching the bats fly out from the South Congress Bridge is a well-known attraction of Austin, TX. However, Rowing Dock puts a twist on it by offering a way to watch the bats from Lady Bird Lake in one of our kayaks, canoes, or paddleboards. From watching the sun set to seeing thousands of bats fly from the SOCO bridge, our guided Sunset Bat Tours make for an unforgettable experience.
Here’s a perspective from one of our tour guides, Mark DeGraff:
“I love bat tours because they allow you to experience great views of the Austin skyline, the emergence of the largest urban bat colony in North America, and the sunset over Lady Bird Lake all in just a few hours of paddling. In my opinion, bat tours are one of the best things to do in Austin!”
