Very friendly as fun staff. I rented a kyacker and my sister a paddle board. The shop is in a retail area and you walk around to the lake to get your equipment. The equipment is in good shape. The dock hand is helpful in giving instructions. They charge by the quarter hour after the the first hour. Definitely recommend!

We had a great time during our guided kayak trip. The guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a great start to our vacation in Austin. During the trip, we were able to go at our own paces, which was great because the other couple with us had a little bit more experience than we did.

These folks make everything very easy for a fun day on the water. Our dog liked their resident dog too :)

Myself and my three children were in Austin for our first visit and for one day. We took a lovely walk on the LBJ hiking trail and came across Live, Love, Paddle. We had heard about the bats and they had kayaks available for that evening. We decided to do the tour and were told to return to the shop... More

From the moment we met the guys at the shop, we knew we were going to have a great time. Very friendly and so knowledgable about the bat tour that we took. The kayaking was very easy, very calm water and had plenty of time to go at our own pace. Seeing the bats were very cool and not scary... More

Very friendly staff. It started raining while we were kayaking, but still had an awesome time. They offered us a place to change had we had extra clothes along. Great views of Austin skyline

We were pleasantly surprised when we were called the morning of our scheduled paddle to let us know that the weather was looking poor and that we could reschedule at no cost! We did, and it was amazing! Tour guides, Tolly and Oliver were great!

Really good value for money and Really friendly guys. Best rates locally and they charge to 15mins rather than to the hour which is great! You can do as little or as much as you like and we all LOVED IT!!! We hired sea kayaks but definitely going to try paddle boarding next time. ( no photos I'm afraid though... More

Best viewing of the bats coming out from Congress Bridge at dusk. Casey (our guide) was very entertaining and informative.

We had a great trip. I have never kayaked before and it was very easy and I felt stable and safe in the boat. Beautiful being out on the water as the sun sets.
