Wish we had more time to kayak so starting the tour at 6 instead of 630.
The guide was very informative on the tour. And I have never kayak so the lesson that they gave was also great.
Great Guides--super informative and friendly! Loved that the boats had seat backs! Glad that your email made sure to mention to come early because of traffic and inability to find parking at the venue, as well as, providing additional information on locations to park! Was a fantastic experience for my children (4 & 6-year-olds), their Aunt and I. Once my husband returns from his 9-month tour in Baghdad, Iraq, we will all be doing it again! I also plan on taking my Mom as well because it was very easy, enjoyable and doable for her! So there will be multiple return trips!! Highly recommend!!!
We had an incredible experience at Congress Ave kayaks. Went on the the bat tour. Got a great guide around the lake. Saw snowy egrets and of course the amazing bats. Very nice facility and excellent service.
The bat tour is awesome! I took my wife on the tour as part of our anniversary and it didn’t disappoint. Our guide led us to see around the lake before stopping under Congress bridge to watch the bats fly. There were so many and they just kept coming and coming! We loved the relaxing environment and our guide was great! Our guide told us about places near by that we could go to like the Baked Bear which makes ice cream sandwiches, so we went and loved it! Needless to say, we enjoyed the tour and service. Thank you Congress Avenue Kayaks!!
Guide was very informative. It is a very easy short paddle to bridge. Clean, stable Kayaks
We thoroughly enjoyed our guided kayak bat tour. Our guide was friendly and very informative.
Great time, great people.. thanks!
Very well organized and an overall fun time!
It was very fun everyone was super nice. Our guide Jack was so nice and was very informative
. He gave a great tour was made sure we were there in time for the bats.
It was fun, relaxing and the bats were great! Over all a wonderful experience.
Every single person, from the woman checking us in, to the wonderful tour guides, to the nice dudes docking our kayaks, was amazingly kind, knowledgeable and obviously in love with their job. As for the kayaking and bat experience, it was amazing! If you’re debating between doing the kayak sunset bat tour and any other tour or simply going on your own to a viewing location - choose the kayaks! The people on the barges and bridges looked hot and crammed, while we had the freedom to paddle about the water freely, dip our feet in to keep cool, and even head back early if we chose (you shouldn’t!)
The tour was just the right pace and the guide was very knowledgeable. It was good for both adults and kids. Great experience!
The price is reasonable, the tour guide was great, the whole experience was excellent.
Location was clean and nice. Equipment the same. Journey (our guide) was pleasant and fun.
Everything was great from the check in process to the mini training, the guide, the equipment, the bats, everything! Highly recommend!
Our guide was great, check-in was easy, and we had a good time.
The kayak tour was good however our guide was difficult to hear, often was talking away from the group or did not wait for the entire group to be there for his talk and information.
We had fun, but wish it was longer. We pretty much only were able to kayak for 1 hour. Great experience though!
Great trip down the river. Guide (Jack) was very informative and very knowledgeable. Loved the time with my son
Had so much fun! Staff was patient and very informative.
Well organized and great tour guide. The bats disappointed us a bit as they were shy, but the paddle was nice and equipment nice as well.
Our guide was very good - Jimmy. The issue was more that we were bummed we couldn’t get solo kayaks for the bat show, and that the bats did not come out so much. After the tour, we were told by several people in town that they really only come out en masse in late August through October. So it felt a little like a bait n switch.
Great river/lake. Nice night. Enjoyed it mostly. Don’t regret it, but we thought you should know. Maybe tell people up front the likelihood is limited in spring and mid- summer.
Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable!
The guide was amazing! I had a wonderful time and will recommended you to all my kayaking friends
BEST EXPERIENCE IN MY LIFE!
