Fusing two modes of transportation can result in more efficient travel as evidenced by water taxis, airbuses, and horse-drawn skateboards. Experience successful transport synthesis with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a rental of two water bikes for one-hour at Austin Water Bikes, located at the Hyatt Regency Austin (up to a $60 value). Each water bike seats one person. Evening rides begin at various times, depending on when it gets dark; please call ahead to schedule.

Austin Water Bikes fulfills amphibious fantasies with waterborne tours by moonlight on hybrid bicycle-kayaks called water bikes that glide along liquid surfaces at speeds of up to 10 mph. From atop a bicycle-seat perch, pairs pedal up and down Lady Bird Lake as they take in the glittering lights of downtown Austin, the Austin skyline, and the Congress Street Bridge while engaging in casual exercise.

The water bike is entirely safe and almost impossible to capsize due to its kayak-catamaran design and unflinching optimism, making it ideal for aquanauts of all ages. Life vests are optional as are other life-enhancing supplies such as sunscreen and bathing suits.

Though Austin Water Bikes sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

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.

Worth renting longer than an hour
Chantel B. · April 16, 2016
Great experience to take in all of Lake Austin. 1 hour is the perfect amount of time and good workout also.
Jessica E. · March 25, 2016
Great way to see downtown Austin Get some exercise and enjoy the lake views Very owner friendly and easily operated They don't turn on a dime, and most water crafts don't, so some navigation savvy is a plus Totally a great time for me I'll be back When you're finished local eateries are all around in walking distance Free parking just to the west in park if you time it right
