What you'll do

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!

This is my favorite activity to do with friends in Austin. I used to host throw big parties and campouts on the island pretty often but it's a lot of work! Airbnb HQ has actually paid me to entertain 100 of their Austin hosts on this island tour before and what an adventure that was! The island is always changing so its fun to go back and see whats new to discover!

I will bring some new and interesting games to play and you can pack some snacks. We'll hangout for a bit and make some new friends before kayaking to an optional bridge jump. You're sure yo make new friends and have a blast.

Where you'll be

Top Secret Island downtown. Duh! Airbnb is making me write more but I still ain't going to tell you where its at!

We'll meet up and kayak around with a break at the island and perhaps a bridge jump!

I had a great time on the tour! We went with Wes and Drew instead of Aaron but they were great guides, friendly, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

Enjoyed the trip on the water on the super SUP. Was easy to find, easy to load, easy to get to our destination, and lovely scenery. Loved that they took pics of us and sent a link right away. Enjoyable afternoon in the ATX!

Aaron is super laid back and a great tour guide. I appreciate the great communication given before the experience and the instructions during our trip on how to use kayaks and paddle board. Loved it!
