Great experience! The tour was super informative and the guide (Dan I think?) was awesome. They give a brief kayak lesson before sending you off to the bridge. I knew nothing about the bats here in Austin before the tour yesterday and learned a lot! Very cool to see them from the kayaks. Would recommend this tour. Worth the $55 per person. On the water for about 2-2.5 hours.
