The best way to experience the real Austin is to jump on a Giant Paddleboard with us and explore the natural spring fed river downtown.

It's so refreshing on a hot summer day. Expect to see 1,000 turtles and a lot of fish below! This trip is great for groups and families. I call this section of the river "the real heart and soul of Austin." You will be surrounded by people living their best life. There will be people jumping off bridges and going off the rope swings. Occasionally there are slack lines setup across the river and other impromptu shows and acrobats hanging below the bridge. On the weekends, there is a massive party island you can join if you'd like. Its easy to avoid the area if you're looking for a family friendly event and easy to join if you like the water party atmosphere with a sand bar feel. If you like paddle boarding, sun, spring water, swimming, bridge jumps, rope swings, hotties, fish and turtles this trip is for you and your group. Groups of 4+ get their own board, smaller groups are combined to make it a more social event. On the fence? Ask to see the video! Book now and my auto reply comes with a "must do in Austin" list to help you plan the rest of your trip!
