Travis was an excellent guide! Personable and Informative. I appreciated all the history and facts he had to share with us. The tour was relaxing, not rushed. And even with a large group, my husband and I felt like we were just kayaking with friends!

Great and adventurous way to see the bats! Much better vantage point and Connor was awesome! He told us a lot about the city, more so than other tour guides we did around the city! Highly recommend!

Travis was a great tour guide! He provided interesting facts (both historical and present day) about the buildings along the river as well as Austin as a city. The equipment was good, the views were beautiful, and the breeze while paddling back was very refreshing. Only cautionary warning is that it may go longer than 2 hours… our tour was closer to 3 hours by the time everyone got back and out of the kayaks.

This was the coolest thing we did in Austin. Connor, our guide was hilarious and very personable. He made sure everyone had a great time and he was very knowledgeable about the city, the lake, and the bats. Being on the lake is fun and seeing the bats fly is oddly beautiful and exciting. I’d highly recommend!

Loved the set up and then being on the water looking at the city was very nice. Seeing the bats come out was the bonus just wow from the water.
