GLASS BOTTOM ILLUMINATED KAYAK ECO TOURS

Jim did it again!  He came up with a great tour idea for downtown Austin … Glass Bottom Illuminated Kayak ECO Tours on Lady Bird Lake in the Barton Springs creek near the spillway area.

imageOur first tour was launch on Saturday, February 14, 2015 … just in time for Valentine’s Day!

We had 7 adorable couples come out to experience Valentine’s on Lady Bird Lake!

Although there were a few wrinkles to iron out for our first tour, all of our guests were super patient and HELPFUL in making our first launch a success!

It was a gorgeous night on Lady Bird Lake, with a cyrstal clear view of Barton Springs, along with a gorgous view of the city (downtown Austin) light up!

Some our of guest saw an endangered Barton Spring Salomander, along with lots of fish, and one fresh water DSC_0230eel.  On our way back to the launch area, we even saw an adorable little muskrat swimming along side one of our kayaks!

We have ten brand new glass bottom kayaks, along with 20 illuminated kayak paddles that Jim has speciality made and has a patten on.

Our second tour went out on Thursdy (February 19) and although it was smaller than our first tour, we still had fun.

Due to all the rain and the clean-up efforts underway of Barton Springs Pool, the creek wasn’t as clear as the Saturday before, but it was still just as nice to paddle in the dark and enjoy the night air with all our paddles and kayaks glowing in the dark!
