Tubing down the Comal River is a very family-friendly river and lots of fun, especially the city shoot.

Fun tubing with our kiddos - put them in life jackets just to be safe... Lots of fun - but go early before it gets too crowded and people get too drunk

With the heat and humidity sooo high, get out to the Comal river and tube it!! Refreshing and clear Spring water, running at the perfect rate, not too long or too short. Level is good, no scraping your rear, maybe a little on the second shoot.

This was one of the highlights of a recent trip to Texas. A must do...over and over and over again! The initial shock of the cold water wears off quickly when you are out in the hot Texas sun. A great and relaxing day on the river! The most stressful part is the exit but that is worth the leisurely... More

The weather was perfect for this experience as it was 100 degrees out. The water temperature was in the low 70's so it felt really good! The float on the river was great, just the right amount of time but I will warn you there were soooo many people. We got there early and I was so glad we did... More

Nothing more fun and relaxing than riding your tube down the Spring-fed Comal River! For more fun, ride down some chutes! Such a great time! 😊

We had a great time! We are in our forties and in good shape. We started our toobing experience at Prince solms park, the first chute was fun but mostly hype! People had me scared to go down the chute! It wasn't bad at all, I didn't fall out like a did in San Marcus. The chute will spit you... More

This float is just the right amount of time. It doesn't get very fast, it's more for a relaxing float with great scenery. There is a chute at the beginning of the float that's a fun little ride. A great float for a few hours!
