River Tubing Float Trips

Downtown Party Bus – Austin, TX

River Float Transportation San Marcos

Tubing is a popular pastime in the Lone Star State, and there are many options around Austin. The San Marcos River is spring-fed, so even in the height of summer it’s a great break from the Texas summertime heat. Tubing on the San Marcos is easy and enjoyable: two different sections of the river offer two different kinds of floats. Part of the float is through downtown San Marcos, but the surrounding vegetation makes you feel removed from the city. The trip is short and mild, ending in about an hour at the Rio Vista Dam. This is a great float for the family, and its central location means easy access to post-tubing grub and entertainment.
The Comal River offers a similar experience to the downtown float on the San Marcos River. This urban stream winds through the city of New Braunfels, so you’re covered if you need lunch or last-minute provisions. Not only is it a short trip (the Comal River is the shortest river in the country), but it’s broad and leisurely, making it another great option for families. The only fast part is the single-person, man-made chute that diverts tubers around the dam. It’s worth mentioning that in addition to a riverside tour of the town, you’ll also float by Schlitterbahn.
There are quite a few choices for tube outfitters in New Braunfels. Landa Falls offers the longest float, but other top picks include Chuck’s Tubes and Comal Tubes. Depending on the outfitter, the float can last anywhere between two and three hours.
