Bats & Skyscrapers on Segways, oh my
It's bat season y'all! That's right, one of Austin's most popular attractions from Mar - Oct is watching our Mexican free-tail bat population take flight each night. This Segway experience is the perfect activity for transitioning from day to night in Austin and we'll get as close as you want to view the bats as the finale. Segway training takes place before dark then we'll cruise to some key vantage points for watching the sun set on Austin's amazing skyscrapers. As the city comes to life, we will fill you with interesting facts and quirky details about why almost 27 million people visit Austin each year. Cruising down the 2nd St. shopping district is a highlight of this trip, making a visit to Willie Nelson's bronze, life-size statue. TIME PERMITTING: A stop can be made to go inside Austin's newly built Central Public Library: a state-of-the-art facility and a true testament to our city's creative & technological environment. Because the bats are in fact wild, live creatures, some elements of nature beyond my control can, from time to time, affect their flight. Some are heavy/recent rains, high winds, cold temps, too bright or too loud conditions due to construction or a nearby concert. This may cause less bats to take flight or they may come out later (outside of the experience window). These circumstances are rare, but must be understood.
Kayak to a Secret Island Downtown
There is a cool secret island in downtown Austin and to find it you'll need me and a boat! We'll kayak over to the island and explore it. We can hammock, play games, have a picnic, swing, etc before continuing our kayak. There is even a good bridge jump nearby! Out of all of my tours, this one is the most chill and because its early in the day it's a good way to meet other travelers and adventure out with them after the tour. Making friends on this trip is easy and its a good way to let others help you plan the rest of your day! Special arrangements: I am flexible to host this anytime. If you don't see a scheduled time that works for you and you have 3 people ready to go, just message me and see if we can work something out! View my IG: @boatsandbats but message me here please. FYI, the IG account shows photos of all of my tours, not just this one, so you'll see a mix of photos. As a bonus, I've created a google doc with my top recommendations on how to spend the rest of your stay in Austin. You get the link to it automatically as soon as you book! So book now and let it help shape your Austin trip! Other things to note We will be kayaking so its best to wear shorts / a swimsuit and sandals. Bring a drink or snack to enjoy on the island. I'll take photos and send them to you so just relax and enjoy the trip!

Giant Glow Paddle Boarding the Springs
This tour is all about exploring the spring fed river in downtown Austin at night! We will meet up just after sunset and use the giant paddle boards to paddle up the spring river. You'll have 12 different color combinations to choose from and your lights will illuminate the crystal clear spring water below. We will most likely be the only people in the water and it's just an unreal experience when you light up the water below. We don't have bioluminescence in our river but this experience is the next best thing. The lights attract the fish and we're sure to see some turtles too. When you paddle the bubbles in the water are really cool! There are opportunities to swim or just stay on the board and remain 100% dry. This is a magical trip because you're downtown but surrounded by darkness and sounds of the night like cicadas, frogs, etc. Get lucky with timing and you'll have a nice moon overhead or some great stars. As with all our other tours, when you book you'll automatically be sent a link with all of our other Austin recommendations to help you plan the rest of your trip! There is also a daytime version of this same trip without lights that I host. Its called "Giant Paddle Board & Swimming in Springs" Looking at that tour helps understand this one.

After Salt Lick, we will head to Jester King Brewery, which is one of my favorites! Jester King is a brewery, kitchen, farm & event hall on a beautiful 165 acre ranch in the Texas Hill Country. It is breathtakingly beautiful, and a perfect place to enjoy some local brews.
Alex's Ice Baths and Breathwork
* Note, you can book this privately during the week. If you book it for the Saturday 9am - 10:30am slot, it will be with about 15 other individuals. This is actually great; doing hard things in groups increases oxytocin, which leads to an increase in dopamine during the challenging parts. We will be doing a mixture of Tai Chi and Breathwork before jumping into some ice baths! This is a great opportunity for: - Team Bonding! Ice Baths wake everybody up and the shared discomfort brings people together. - Social Media! Who else that you know is jumping into an ice bath on Sunday morning? - Reflection: The Ice Bath removes anything inessential. It helps to release feelings of being stuck, complacent, and angry.

Your guide to Austin

Where do locals hang out in Austin?

South Congress is still one of the favorite local hangouts, thanks to a wide variety of restaurants, shops, and bars. For more low-key vibes, North Austin is where you’ll find the beer lovers hopping from brewery to brewery; meanwhile, East Austin is the spot for budget-friendly eats and an old-school Austin vibe. And when it comes to honky-tonks, don’t miss chicken bingo on Sundays at the Little Longhorn Saloon.

For warmer months, tubing on the Guadalupe, with stop-offs at Barton Springs and Zilker Park, is a fun day out that everyone gets behind here in Austin. The more laid-back version for cooling off is Hamilton Pool Reserve, about a one-hour drive from Austin, where you can go for a short hike and dip in the natural pools set against waterfalls.


What are the best local eats in Austin?

Barbecue and Tex-Mex are delicious (and loved) in Austin, but not the only thing worth trying. Across town, you’ll find menus that span the globe: notably ramen and sushi, both unexpected delights in an otherwise landlocked city. James Beard award–winning chefs have also gotten in the mix, opening spots across the city in areas such as South Austin. What might surprise visitors is Austin’s wine scene, with a cluster of wineries and vineyards sitting just outside city limits. You can head out for a day of tastings, disc golf, and more on tours with local wine enthusiasts.


Where are the best places to see live music in Austin?

Downtown’s Moody Theater

You’re in the Live Music Capital of the World, and Austin City Limits Live (ACL Live) at Moody Theater is a great way to get the full experience. Located downtown, this sustainably built building has traditionally hosted more than 100 performances, across all genres, a year.

Red River District

Small clubs, rooftops, dive bars, and outdoor stages, among other spots, host a variety of acts from big names to up-and-coming locals along this three-block strip dedicated to nightlife. Concert-lovers flock to this part of town, especially in January when you can attend free concerts and live acts by local musicians for an entire week.

Rainey and 6th Street

For a night out, it’s not uncommon to hear someone pose the question “Dirty or Rainey?” When it comes to nightlife, even locals end up on “Dirty 6th” (East 6th Street) or Rainey Street for live music, clubs, and a buzzing bar scene.
