Description

Uncover waterfront views of Austin's skyline as you take to Lady Bird Lake in a tandem kayak. Paddle between views of the Frost Bank Tower and the W Hotel, learn about the city's most iconic buildings, and enjoy an active day out on the water on this fun-filled adventure.

Team up with your guide on the shores of Lady Bird Lake, created where the Colorado River meets the Longhorn Dam. Take a few minutes to go over basic paddling techniques, and then hop in the seat of a tandem kayak to push off from shore with your partner.

Set your sights on Austin's skyline, rising up behind the wooded shores of Lady Bird Lake. Learn about the construction of the Frost Bank Tower, the first skyscraper built in the US after 9/11, check out the gleaming facade of The Austonian, and look for One Congress Plaza's staircase-like top. Snap photos of your favorite buildings, keep your eyes peeled for area wildlife including snapper turtles, and get tips from your guide on other places to check out on the lake before you head back to your starting point.
