Það sem verður gert

Welcome to Austin's #1 booked tour! I can say with confidence I am the best guide on the water.

July 4th = fireworks too!

Let's meet up for an epic night of kayaking. 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!

If trip is sold out, ask if I can fit you in.

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!

Hi, my name is Aaron. I've hosted this exact trip more than 500 times and I still get excited to do it again every night. It's that awesome.

I am confident I am the best AIRBNB experience host in Austin and I believe I still have 4 times as many reviews as any other host.

I know Austin's outdoors extremely well. Ask me for the secret local gems and I'll fill up your trip with adventures.

When I'm not guiding, you can 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 have kids ages 3 and 1 so I'm really good with kids. Book your family trip with confidence.

This is a really popular tour that I host 95% of the time but friends help when I'm needed elsewhere.

Staðsetning

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!

So super cool!we kayaked down the river and got to see a ton of bats just after the sun went down. All the hosts were helpful and knowledgeable.

A fantastic experience!! Enough structure for safety, yet enough independence for each person to create a unique and personal experience. Aaron generously demonstrates his passion for bats, kayaking, and sharing his knowledge of each with others. Aaron even showed concerned for people standing atop and beside the Congress Street bridge, advising them of better vantage points for seeing the 1.5 million single mother Mexican Freetail bats, and he also invited other independent kayakers to listen to his verbal presentation on the movement of the bats. Through Aaron, we learned the bats travel from Monterey, Mexico each February, but only if pregnant. The females make the long journey to the Congress St bridge, in Austin, where they spend their days in safety and seclusion within vast spaces inside the concrete structure; every nightfall emerging enmass to spend the entire night in flight, consuming massive numbers of flying insects, to the benefit of Austin area agriculture. Once the gals began emerging, Aaron used red spotlights to illuminate the frenetic flight of over a million tiny mammals. We learned the colony flies with strategic purpose underneath the broad supports of the bridge, to avoid flying predators. (If you stand on the bridge, particularly the north and west sides, you will miss most, if not all, of the amazing natural display.) Incredible sight!! Our particular trip was extra special as our date coincided with the sun setting right over the river. Spectacular! Then came the featured event: the fascinating Mexican Freetail bats! Watching these delicate creatures play out their nightly ritual reminds us of the mystery and magnificence of our natural world. Finally, still out on the glistening beribboned river, you are awedwith postcard views of the Austin night skyline.... Magical!! My daughter and I shared this trip. Neither of us are spring chickens, but the trip was well within our comfort range. Aaron keeps a close eye on the group, and has other guides on the water, eager to help anyone who might need assistance. Life preservers are provided, and a bow light gently illuminates the dark water. Pick a full moon night and you will make an already magical experience even more stunning. As Aaron would say: It is epic!!
