During a nighttime kayak tour of Austin that is timed to coincide with the magnificent natural spectacle, you can see more than a million bats fly out of the Congress Avenue Bridge. You can have a front-row view of the Mexican free-tailed bats as they take to the sky by watching them from a kayak instead of among the crowds on the riverbank when watching the Congress Avenue Bridge bats.
In Austin, Texas, use a kayak to explore and discover one of the largest urban bat colonies in the world! In order to watch the bats at the Congress Avenue Bridge, we will kayak up the lake after meeting up at our office in the AMLI South Shore apartments on Lady Bird Lake.

We run tours in and around the city that are especially designed to allow you view as many bats as possible, which will please you if you find these furry little critters interesting. We are familiar with every crevice and creepy spot where they like to conceal themselves near the Congress Avenue Bridge. We do nighttime tours that will show you both our lovely city and our beautiful furry friends (as evening is the ideal time to see them). Austin Bat Tours is the finest when you book with them.
We want you to feel secure and comfortable when you join us on a tour, so please wear summer attire. Bats prefer warm weather and are most visible from October to March, when temperatures can reach 90 to 100 degrees. If you'd prefer something completely different, we also offer kayak tours that allow you to view these amazing animals from the water.
