The Deal

  • $29 for a 90-Minute Water-Bike Bat-Viewing Tour for Two ($70 Value)

Passengers climb onto beginner-friendly and stable water bikes to explore Lady Bird Lake and the dazzling spectacle of the 1.5 million mexican free-tailed bats that live under the Congress Avenue Bridge. The guided tour normally starts about 90 minutes prior to sunset.

Austin Water Bikes

Austin Water Bikes fulfills amphibious fantasies with a fleet of hybrid bicycle-kayaks, called water bikes, that glide along liquid surfaces at speeds of up to 7 miles per hour. These beginner-friendly vessels are safe and almost impossible to capsize due to their kayak-catamaran design and unflinching optimism, making them ideal for aquanauts of all ages.

Set against the Austin skyline, Lady Bird Lake is the result of a beautification project led by former first lady Lady Bird Johnson. Its waters form a scenic setting for participants of water-bike rentals to watch bats take flight from the Congress Avenue Bridge or sunsets paint their colors across the sky. Additionally, Austin Water Bikes' staff uses the lake to lead senior spin classes, team-building workshops, and motivational seminars for freshwater mermen.
