This is the best way to experience the bats hands down. The journey on the 5-6 person giant paddle board starts with epic downtown views during the day, continues with the sunset, then observing the 1.5 million bats fly out and ends the night paddling back after dark in the city glow.

Booking this tour for the sunset and bats puts you along side Austin's #1 experience "kayaking w/ the bats" only you're on a board! Its the same trip just a different vessel.

I also host daytime paddles using the same boards so message me if you want to take a custom trip on the boards to a secret island or the springs

Don't let the word "Paddleboard" fool you. This is 15 feet long and 4.5 feet wide. It is ultra stable. You will not get wet unless you choose to go for a swim. You can sit down, stand up, or even lay down. It's impossible to fall into the water on accident.

It takes 2 people to paddle a giant board so single travelers may be asked to join another group.

The mega paddle boards make for an excellent family or group option cause you get to stay together and share the experience.

As a bonus, as soon as you book, my auto-reply welcome message has my personal guidebook to Austin that can help you plan the rest of your Austin vacation.!

I love Austin and paddleboarding. We do this trip often with friends and family and want to share it with everyone! I have traveled to 30+ countries and paddle board whenever I get the chance. I like meeting people from all over the world and have given this trip over 150 times this year alone!

I host this trip along side my husband who offers the kayak version. His version of this same trip is the #1 experience in Austin. He hosts the kayakers and I host the Giant Paddle boarders.

We will be paddleboarding on Lady Bird Lake. If you take the sunset tour you'll get to see the skyline during the day, then the sunset, then the bats, then downtown skyline at night!

If you want to book during the day, we can go explore a secret island downtown or paddle in the spring water below Barton Spings pool to enjoy the most wildlife.

The Giant Paddle Board experience was great. They are very stable and fun. Darby and Aaron are very helpful and are very knowledgeable. The bat experience was amazing, seeing how they fly out from the bridge. From the water is the best place to view the bats. Highly recommended.

Aaron and Darby led such a fun excursion! I was new to Austin and booked the experience for myself and a few friends who are local to the area. Even they had never seen the bats from the river-it was a magical experience! Aaron was very accommodating and relaxed. The pictures he took of us were cute as shit. The paddle boards were pretty easy to get used to. They were very stable, we changed our position on them to see different things. The bats flew outright around sunset but even paddle boarding back to the meeting spot afterwards with the moon out was so peaceful and beautiful. We could hear snatches of live music and see bunches of egrets perched in their tree for the night. All the buildings and houses glowed with lights. 10000% would recommend.

It was a great trip. It was amazing to see that many bats flying out of the bridge. The view was beautiful. We would like to do it again!

We had a good time getting to the viewing spot but wish we had positioned ourselves better for when the bats came out. We were right under the bridge so we got a fair amount of droppings and it was kind of an awkward look up. Better to be right in front of the bridge but by the time we got there the bats had mostly spread out. At that point we also kind of lost all semblance of a group. People started heading back but there was no direction from host so we ended up being one of the last to leave and there were no other people around us. It's quite the paddle back in the dark. So overall it was ok but you could also just go stand by the bridge and see it for free.

It was a great experience paddle boarding to Congress Bridge to see the bats fly out after sunset. Aaron did great with telling us the history of the bats. They gave us clear instructions to get out to bridge and back to harbor where we started. It was well organized.

Loved this experience! At first I was a little worried about accidentally falling into the water on the paddleboard but according to Aaron, the board super sturdy and it really was! It was really fun paddling down the river to the bridge and watching the bats up close. I enjoyed paddling back afterwards too while surrounded by the city lights.
