Patrons gently jounce across the waters of Lady Bird Lake in rented kayaks or atop standup paddleboards. Rentals include an easy-to-paddle sit-in kayak or sit-on-top kayak with seatbacks, and both options include life vests and paddles.
Congress Avenue Kayaks
Just below the Four Seasons Hotel on the north shore trail of Lady Bird Lake waits the Waller Creek Boathouse, where first-time kayakers and paddling experts alike shove off into serene waters. Paddlers embark on hourly or half-day tours aboard easy-to-navigate water vessels, soaking in the lush scenery. The Congress Avenue bridge's reflection glimmers on the water, lined by thick foliage and towering trees. Throughout their trips, kayakers might find themselves floating alongside a family of ducks or beneath a colony of Mexican free-tailed bats, each of whom have signed a contract promising not to get tangled in paddlers' hair.
“Very friendly and helpful staff.”
“you can bring dogs on kayaks!”
“Great afternoon fun! Can't wait to go back! Bring lots of water!”
