Congress Avenue Kayaks is on the hike and bike trail below the Four Seasons Hotel, a partner in Austin's Parks and Recreation Department Waller Creek Boathouse, and adjacent to the Austin Rowing Club.

Mission of Congress Avenue Kayaks

 Simply put, our mission is to provide guests with fun and positive outdoor recreational experiences in our kayaks or paddleboards whether for fitness or for relaxation goals.  We hope guests will embrace kayaking and paddleboarding as lifelong activities.

Darla McDonnell and staff are very excited to be part of the new boathouse – let us show you Downtown Austin from Lady Bird Lake!
