I was a kayak and Paddleboard guide and am certified in water safety, and CPR. I am an expert nature/outdoor survivalist, but can also hold my own in a conversation regarding Tech-startups, and Crypto. I organize and manage events for a living. I love chatting with people who are visiting this city and make sure that by the time they leave, they are as in love with Austin as much as I am. If you get a chance, check out the time that one of my guests lost her Engagement ring in the river, and I ended up on a TV show to get it back! https://www.facebook.com/manplusriver/videos/479206439498862/?t=34

We were in Austin to meet up after two friends who haven't seen one another in years. Dave's trip down the river was an excellent way to relax, talk and be in nature while seeing a bit more of Austin and meet other people. Our group was small and it was perfect. Three others including Dave. Casual conversation, nothing forced, stories shared by all. Dave is genuine without the campy tour guide cracks. Turtles, birds, fish and the locals all added to the experience. The small Rapids or falls at the end added a little thrill. Only one negative was fellow smokers and my partner not caring to be in nature and smell smoke throughout the ride. Not much to be done about that. People are people. Spring fed river, crystal clear and a great escape!!! I would encourage others to do this for certain.

Dave was such an awesome host and went above and beyond our expectations. It was definitely the highlight of our trip. We met some awesome people! The experience itself was perfect. If you are a non-swimmer and debating whether you should book this trip or not, do it! The river is super calm, Dave is with you the entire time, tubes are tied together so you can’t really drift away or anything, and if there’s any overgrown vegetations or anything, he gets out of his own tube to guide the tubes out of the way. If you are still super nervous, you can also ask Dave to bring you life jackets. We got life jackets just in case but honestly you don’t even need the life jackets. The river is pretty shallow for most of the ride. Towards the end of the ride, there are 3 super short natural water slides and the water does go a little bit faster but in my opinion was the most fun part of the ride. we put on our life jackets to do that but now having done it, we would have been totally fine without life jackets too. If you are still unsure and don’t like the idea of doing the water slides in the end, Dave stops everyone before that section, so you can just opt out if you don’t want to do that. But again, highly recommend you try it. Dave, thanks again for such a great time and company!

This was an awesome experience for my friends and I on our Austin getaway! Dave was a fantastic host that went above and beyond our expectations. Meeting up was easy and from there Dave took care of everything. He’s super friendly and makes you feel like you’re on an adventure with old friends! If you’re looking for a fun water activity while in Austin I highly recommend this experience with Dave as your host!

This was such a great experience! Dave was so accommodating and literally took care of everything. He had plenty of drinks for our large group and provided coolers for us..the river was amazing and refreshing! Definately worth it and recommend booking with Dave if you are looking for a fun getaway while in Austin!
