This is a must do if your visiting the area, so much fun and everyone was really friendly. The float rental was $18 and there was a deposit. But there was a free bus ride back so worth the money.

Very relaxing float on the Comal, thanks to Landa River Trips. Groupon saved us some cash and we had a blast! The chutes are fun and the float is a great way to just chill with family and friends. Stop along the way and have a picnic or just take a break and catch up with a new clan of... More

Had a blast with my two young boys. Wasn't expensive and saw a lot of cool stuff... baby turtles and frogs.

Loved this float. The water is pretty and was ice cold, very refreshing on a hot Texas summer day. Don't go through the chute though unless you hold on to your tube real tight. If you lose your tube, you're screwed! I chose to exit before the chute and then get back in right past it because I'm not a... More

We traveled here for a weekend float trip with friends. We have small kids and were assured that the river was a great 'family friendly' activity. We did not agree! After a stressful 3 hour trip down the river, where we were surrounded by drunk, obnoxious people...we had had enough. We may have been the only sober people on the... More

I have loved this river since I was young. It's like a Waterpark powered by nature. The water is always cold, clear and refreshing in the Texas heat. The shoot is a blast and you can do them as many times as you want. This is a much more controlled, tamer ride than the Guadalupe. The only downfall is all... More

Don't confuse the "Mickey Mouse" - the Comal still has EXCELLENT rapids and waterfalls - it's just not as rugged as the Guadalupe. Much more of a family scene than a party scene.

We used Comal River Tubes for our "floating experience" and it was perfect! The river was running at a good speed, the water was super clean, deep and nice & cool. We went through a few shoots which we really enjoyed. I can't wait to go again!

Our Texas adventure started at the Comal River. We floated along drinking beer (for the adults) and sodas (for the kids) without a care in the world. A nice cool river in the 105 degree weather. Lost my flip flops along one of the "chutes" and saw a woman almost drown trying to retrieve an item in the churning chute/wave.... More

Bring lots of sunblock, a bungee for your cooler, a hat, and extra sunblock. The River flowed nicely and has all ages floating. There weren't a many drunk floaters which made it a relaxing (at times thrilling) experience for the teenagers.
