I went on a four hour kayak trip down the San Marcos River with Live Love Paddle guide Casey. It was an awesome experience an one that I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a unique way to spend a sunny afternoon.
Live Love Paddle also offer kayak trips from March-November on Ladybird Lake to see the Mexican bats; unfortunately I missed out on that on this trip but plan to return to Austin in May to enjoy that experience too.

I found Live Love Paddle online while looking for things to do in Austin. My friends were excited to go kayaking, and the fact that we were to view the flying bats was an additional thrill. I've never operated a kayak before and was pleasantly surprised that it is easy and relaxing (on the calm waters of Lady Bird Lake).
I must say we have enjoyed everything about the tour and since have gone kayaking with Live Love Paddle a few more times. It is a great way to spend an afternoon/evening and experience one of a kind, middle-of-the-city, but outdoorsy venture.

One of the most laid back tours I've ever been on. Relaxed pace, good information about the bats, the bridge, and Austin. I was at a conference and many of the people watched the bats from the bridge and they were dissappointed. From the river there was an excellent view. I highly recommend this trip.

My 8-year old daughter and I took the kayaking tour in August.
I wasn't sure if she could actually kayak or even myself for that matter.
I had never kayaked.
Casey was awesome! He explained (very patiently I might add) everything you needed to know and we had a blast. My daughter couldn't quite get the hang of it and they ended up towing her. She loved it!
Bets way to see the bats. Exillarating!
You couldn't ask for a better tour guide than Live Love Paddle!
First rate! Don't miss out! You won't regret it.

What a great way to see the bats! Casey was a fun tour guide, the price was reasonable (used Groupon), and sitting in water watching the bats fly out is a must for all tourists. Ample free parking at the put in site.
