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

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.

I was with 6 other girls for a long weekend to celebrate a Bachelorette Party. We rent kayaks. Live Love Paddle employees were very friendly. They charge by rounding up to the 15 minute so you don't have to pay for another full hour like other companies in the area.

We had a great time on the Congress Ave Bat Tour with Live Love Paddle. Our guide gave us so much great information about the largest urban bat colony and we got amazing views of the sunset and Austin skyline.

Best paddling outfitter around! A large fleet of good sit-on-top or sit-in kayaks and stand up paddle boards. Go solo or with a great guide (we had Casey who was super knowledgeable, friendly and fun to spend a few hours with! Casey and Beverly are fabulous business owner-operators and were easy to work with. Lockers on site (free) allow customers... More
