River was full and running at a great pace. I would highly recommend paying the five dollars to go down the tube chute. The free line had a three hour wait.

We love this. We have done it every time we have been to San Antonio. Look for coupons in the brochures of your hotel and you can save or get the unlimited rides. Get the unlimited trip admission. They take you in a shuttle to the beginning of the river trail and pick you up and the end of the... More

Floats were only open Friday to Sunday. Lots of water flow has changed the float some. Not much there where the usual bumps for Rapids usually are. Water is green and not clear. At least for what it normally is. Still a fun if fairly quick float. Just don't expect to see the bottom or any fish.

We came to go on the Guadelope River but it was closed due to flooding, so we went on the Comal. We used Texas Tubes and was very happy with them. The float was very slow, except for the "Shoot" which was great. We had a good time.

Once you get past the tube chute it's a great time! The water is clear and was pretty warm. Make sure you secure your cooler before the chute as you will not be able to hold on to it. I lost mine, but thankfully it didn't flip over. I managed to catch up to it down river. It was about... More

This was my first time in 20yrs floating the river to actually float the Comal, since the Guad was too rapid. It's definitely more low-key and more family friendly. It was much calmer, but super packed since the Guad was closed to tubing. Secure ALL of your belongings before going down the chute or you WILL lose something....or several things.... More

This is a great 2-3 hour float down a spring fed river right through town and past the shlitterbaun water park. It has one tube Shute and is fairly calm float.

the river was great. The water was up and it had a nice flow to it. Get a tube, lay back and enjoy it!

The Comal river trip from Landa Falls to the Schiltterbahn exit took about 1.5 -2 hours. The river had some debris in it but was a fun way to end our 2nd day. We were looking for the rope swing we remembered from 10 years ago but did not see it. The Chute is better now that it allows a... More

The Comal River is great for toobing this summer at the Chute or Schlitterbahn. The Guadalupe River will be by guided rafting trip due to flooding.
