Congress Bridge Bat Tour

What to expect
  • Ride a kayak up Lady Bird Lake and observe the famous Congress Bridge bats
  • Bask in the awe-inspiring sights of one of the world's largest urban bat colonies
  • Snap some photos of your nocturnal winged friends to commemorate the experience
  • Enjoy a new perspective of Austin while cruising along the lake
Psssst. We have a secret: Bats are not the scary little critters that movies make them out to be. And no, they won't turn into vampires and haunt your dreams. They're actually pretty fascinating!

Austin has one of the world's LARGEST urban bat colonies, which can be viewed at Congress Bridge. Best of all, Live Love Paddle gives you the opportunity to view these wondrous creatures from the convenience of a kayak!

As you paddle over Lady Bird Lake, you will get the opportunity to snap some photos, which you can share with jealous friends, neighbors, and coworkers. Your expert guide will teach you all about the bats and their place in Austin and its history.

So come on down!
