Open Kayak, Paddle Board & Drop-In Ecology Hours

Open Kayak, Paddle Board & Drop-In Ecology Hours

Atlas Obscura & GORE-TEX Brands have partnered with Congress Avenue Kayaks to offer free morning boat rentals for our guests to head out and explore the waters of Lady Bird Lake. Stand up paddle boards will be available along with single and double kayaks.

On a first-come, first-serve basis, as sizes permit, boaters will be able to test GORE-TEX INFINIUMTM Stretch Gloves and jackets with GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY® technology.

Meanwhile at the Waller Creek Boathouse docks we'll be joined by a smattering of local ecologists from the Integrative Biology Department at the University of Texas at Austin onboard. These dynamic experts in local wildlife and wetlands will include Dr. Susan Cameron Devitt and Alison Northup, who will be on hand to highlight the hidden wonders of the natural world on land and on lake.

Limited capacity; First come, first serve.
