I moved to Austin 6 years ago and have been loving this beautiful city every day since. Born and raised in New York City, I've spent time as a professional tour guide in the Florida Everglades, Upstate New York and throughout South and Central America. When I'm not on the water kayaking, you can find me riding or building custom, sustainable bicycles or playing with my adorable 2 year old daughter.

Great sunset tour. The bats didn’t cooperate as we had hoped, but Gabriel went above and beyond to make sure that we saw the bats under the bridge and that we had an awesome experience. My boys (13&9) loved it even more than I did. Highly recommend.

He is very nice and wants you to enjoy your time. If you need extra help learning how to kayak he is willing to help. He is also very funny.

Highly recommend the sunset tour! Gabe is the best! My family and I signed up for the sunset tour and it was our first time kayaking and it could not have gone any better!

This sunset kayaking experience was a 10/10! Stunning views all around, relaxing atmosphere, entertaining host. And the bats were super cool to see! Definitely worthwhile!

Highly recommend this tour, it's a great way to spend your day or evening. I live here and had forgotten how beautiful Town Lake is-thanks for reminding me Gabriel.

This is a must do activity for any visit to Austin. Not only do you get to see the bats but also the city lights! It’s a view you can’t get while walking. Kayaking was so relaxing and is an experience I’ll never forget. I’d do it again next time I’m in town.
