Walked up rented a tube with a bottom. Rental includes a shuttle ride back after river ride is done. We floated for about 2 hours and exited the river and didn't have to wait 5 minutes for shuttle to pick up. Shuttle took us back to our cars. No issues and great time.

We flew down to Austin from New England to celebrate a bachelorette party. Some quick things to note: 1. They have a shuttle service for large groups. That was super helpful since we are not locals. You can drink on the bus. 2. They don't have anywhere for you to store your things when you get there (i.e. lockers, etc.).... More

Pretty simple place. Pay 15 bucks, enjoy a nice float down the Comal River, then they pick you up and bring you back. As first timers, it would have been nice to get a few tips from the workers. Like....they have string and sacks to tie to your tubes, but no one told us. We ask other customers and they... More

Stayed at Heidelberg Lodges, great place for a family reunion. Wish they had a enclosed a/c room for gatherings, though.

Our first trip on the Comal was with Texas Tubes in August 2013. They made the trip easy and had us covered on all the things we didn't know we needed. Tubes, watertight container for your car keys, easy on site parking, reusable drink cups... all in one place if you forgot anything. The Comal is spring fed, so it's... More

Note all Comal River first timers: plastic and glass bottles, aluminum cans, disposable baggies, NOT allowed in the river. Reusable cups only, so bring them if you have them! There are no floating coolers of beer on this river. :D If you're looking to float the Comal river, look no further. Texas tubes has what you want. For $15, you... More

We had a great time, except for the water being down. Met a lot of people, got wet and ate a lot of food. Camping spot was beautiful and wasn't real close to others, very spacious. Lack of water flow wasn't a big downer, but would have made it a lot better. Tubes were great, bathrooms were clean....very nice.

Johnny was friendly, the tubes in good repair, bus ride back timely, and the price was fair. As Bostonians, the cool weather was no problem for us ... the river belonged to us.

We (late 40's couple on 10 day trip through Texas) got there early, no-one else there when we arrived. Easily got tubes, bathrooms were clean, and were in the cold water quickly. We enjoyed the float trip, the quiet, calm parts where we saw deer wandering through the lawns of the beautiful houses and the fast chutes which were alot... More
