Rent Kayaks and SUPs in the Heart of Downtown Austin 

Austin is one of the best cities in the world for outdoor workouts. With the exception of some the sweatier summer months, we have mild temps and a ton of gorgeous nature to explore. Chances are you’ve enjoyed the hike and bike trail, so this year why not take your workout on the water and see the city from a new vantage point?

Congress Kayaks, located at the Waller Creek Boathouse on Trinity Street, is Downtown Austin’s only rental spot—which means it’s the absolutely best launching spot for enjoying Lady Bird Lake the beautiful skyline and the world famous bats. And, let’s own-up that Austin is a paddle-happy city.

Kayaking is easy to pick up and fun. All ages can rent and family members and friends can team up on double and triple kayaks, or choose to ride alone in a single kayak or SUP (standup paddleboard).

They have daily deals and a frequent paddlers punchcard for those who can’t get enough. They also have amazing guided tours for the bats at sunset or cruising from downtown all the way to Barton Springs. Come see ATX in a whole new way—and get a great workout while you’re at it.
