We took 2 2-person kayaks with our kids (8yo and 11yo) on the 6 mile trip. We probably did more of a "float" than a "paddle", plus we stopped enroute for snacks, so it took us longer than the 2 hours. They called to check...More

It was a stinking hot Saturday in Austin - 100+ so we decided to spend the morning on the water somewhere and what better place than meandering down the lazy Colorado River! Rising Phoenix and Jami were excellent. We took a two person kayak for...More

There is a 6mile and a 20 something mile day trip available. It is a great trip for anyone, no experience necessary. We went in 65 degree weather and it was still absolutely perfect as you do not have to get wet, but certainly have...More

Hi, great way to spend 3 hours of your day with friends, family and have a relaxing, fun time. Today we went back on the river with Phoenix for about the 6th time over the years. From the minute you book to arriving at the...More

We were three first-time kayakers, two adults (50+ years old) and one 11-year old. We told them we were beginners and originally requested the guide service (as recommended on their site). The owner talked us out of it saying the river is very slow moving...More

This is a review of the 6 1/2 mile paddling trip down the Colorado river in Bastrop. This company offers longer expeditions as well, and also does cycling trips and bicycle repairs. We were given 3 hours of time, and met at the gear store...More
