What you'll do

Welcome to Austin's #1 booked tour! You're going to love it. Let's meet up for an epic night of kayaking downtown. It's 4 incredible trips in one. 1st you paddle the length of downtown during the day, then we catch the sunset over the water. The bats are the main event and we end with downtown paddle at night! Add in a full moon or bright stars occasionally and this trip is one not to miss! Recent pics on IG at @Boatsandbats Book through me because: I'm a traveler and Airbnb host as well so I know what you want out of the trip. On top of bat facts, i'll give you more freedom to kayak, make sure to take great photos of you on the tour, and make sure you meet other like minded travelers in the group who can share their tips or even join you for a night out afterwards. I've got good travel stories for days and lots of local insight to help you build out the best plan for the rest of your stay. Bad weather = full refund. You won't find a guide who tries harder to make sure you have the best night possible. You'll also be given high quality photos at the end of your trip! This sells out fast so book now or contact me if you want to go and its not available. View my IG: @boatsandbats Need one more reason to book?

Hi my name is Aaron and I've hosted this trip hundreds of times and still love it! I know Austin and its outdoors and secret spots better than most. You can usually find me exploring on my dirt bike or swimming. I've traveled to more than 60 countries and I do all sorts of extreme sports along the way. I also rent houses in Austin month to month and organize a lot of social activities for our friend group. If you're coming to Austin and want to explore the outdoors, you won't find a better host. I've hosted guests at my houses since 2010 and on tours since 2011. This is a really popular tour that I host 95% of the time but friends help when I'm needed elsewhere.

Where you'll be

We will put our kayaks into the water underneath I-35 and then paddle to the Congress Ave bridge which is the main event. We have plenty of time built into the tour to kayak the length of downtown and back to the bridge before the bats come out. We will travel to the bridge as a group and I'll lead and "out and back" paddle for an additional mile if you would like.... go as far as you want at your own pace and we'll re-group before the bats!

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

For a full refund, cancel at least 7 days before the experience is scheduled to start or within 24 hours of purchase.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 24 guests ages 5 and up can attend. Please understand if you book this tour more than a few weeks in advance the start time may be adjusted closer to the event due to the bats coming out at sunset and the sunset changing over time. A 30 minute…

More tips

Wear shorts & sandals that can get wet. The return time will vary as this tour is based on the sunset & wild animals. Cancellations by the host due to weather receive 100% refund. Obviously the bats are wild animals and some nights are better than others. I can put you in the best spot to watch.
