Description

Paddle through the waters of Lady Bird Lake, scoping out views of downtown Austin's skyline, visiting quiet islands, and cruising past parks that line this sealed section of the Colorado River. Along the way, explore secluded beaches perfect for a refreshing swim and snap photos of native wildlife.

Pick up your kayak on the shores of Lady Bird Lake, a manmade reservoir that helps supply Austin with drinking water and prevent flooding of the Colorado River. Get fitted for a paddle, life jacket, and a kayak as experienced rental staff chat about proper paddling technique and offer tips on different places you can check out.

Enjoy the freedom to explore Lady Bird Lake at your leisure. You might drift to the quiet shores of Snake Island, whose name thankfully has little to do with its character, check out Barton Springs Pool, or look for Mexican free-tailed bats under the Congress Avenue Bridge. At the end of your rental time, point your bow back to the tour office and wrap up your paddling adventure.

Me and my husband enjoyed our first Kayak experience The location was easy to find and the staff very helpful It was a quick walk to the water they showed us how to row and we took off. The location was amazing and I would recommend everyone to experience an adventure like this.
