Humans often relax by communing with nature: hiking through mountains, paddling down rivers, and eating berries indiscriminately. Get your fill of nature with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $24 for two 4-hour tandem-kayak rentals ($50 value)
  • $29 for three 4-hour tandem-kayak rentals ($75 value)
  • $36 for two 2-hour standup-paddleboard rentals ($80 value)

Groups paddle through Lady Bird Lake for hours in rented kayaks or atop standup paddleboards. Kayakers can choose an easy-to-paddle sit-in kayak or sit-on-top kayak with seatbacks. 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.
