My husband, Brad and I discovered this fun and unique route along the San Antonio Riverwalk three years ago and just knew visitors would enjoy it too! Brad has acquired a fleet of kayaks ready to share this tree-lined section of the San Antonio River with those who want to experience downtown San Antonio on a paddling trail. We are kayaking now.

My friend and I absolutely LOVED this experience!!! So far, it’s been the highlight of our trip! Brad was incredibly nice and friendly. He had everything we needed, which was just the life jackets and kayaks. He also took some great photos of me and my friend. We put our phones and keys in a plastic bag to take with us, and were even able to take some of our own phone photos while in the boat since the water is so calm... you can go at a relaxing pace! The directions to meet up were very clear and easy to understand. We would hands down do it all over again. Thank you Brad, if we’re ever back, we’ll do it again!
