It was eight in our party and as you can imagine a little chaotic. We had to switch the tubes between the ones with the bottom and the ones without the bottom and the switch was seamless. Very friendly staff. The lifeguards sometimes are not 100% on task but what can you expect from young adults during covid

We always wanted to float this ever since we’ve passed by so we drove down from
OKC. Definitely worth it. They have parking nearby $10 or you can risk parking on the roads close by. You are allowed coolers but NO bottles, cans, plastic bags or anything that will pollute the River. Please don’t litter and you see trash be king enough to pick it up and discard it properly. Tube rentals are $25 with $5 off for military (much appreciated). They will hold your vehicle keys with your ID for no cost. Once in the River, relax and enjoy and be kind.

Owners and staff is super friendly and makes you feel valued.

Nice friendly employees. We went there on Friday around 12:00, they weren’t very busy considering it was a nice warm day. I think it was about $12 a person and it takes about 2 hours from beginning to end unless you stop to eat. You can bring food and drinks along with you just be sure to carry out your trash. On the day we went it was a little slow going the first half but that’s not in their control. There are 3 man made rapids you go through. About the only bad thing I found was there wasn’t any employees at the end to help you get out of the tube.

Good experience! I’m sure weekends are crazy but on a Monday we got our tubes quick and we’re ready to go. The bus was waiting for us when we got out. About a 5 minute drive back to parking. If u want to take your phone, invest in a water proof case or buy one there for $20. There a changing room area and we were able to park on-site.

Tx Tubes has their lines down to a science.
First you pay $20 for off sight parking. Then you stand in a line at a pop up tent to pay for your tubes. You get a token that you turn in at the River for the tube.
Then, you stand in another line to get in a bus to go to the river. After getting off the bus, you stand in yet another line to turn in the token to finally get your tube.
It felt a little like standing in a queue at Disney. But they do it well.

Probably the best thing is that they will hold your keys for you until your tubing is over. I wouldn’t want to risk losing them in the river!

This was definitely a breath of fresh air being able to be out and enjoying the water. Had the best time ever! Be careful going down the chute!!! You do not want to get caught outside of current, it’s so hard to get back in! (Speaking from experience) lol. All in all, we had an amazing time and it was truly a memorable Sunday funday.

My group had a great time, no complaints on the Comal River. Easy access on and off the River, warm, not cold water, fun for all. We brought our own tubes from Dallas. 17 person group, all enjoyed the day and the chute!

My kids and I had a fantastic experience with Texas Tubes. The staff was super helpful and friendly and there was a bus waiting for us right when we finished our float. I look forward to floating the Comal River again and using Texas Tubes!

We spent the day on the river with Texas Tubes. It was a quiet day and we had the river almost to ourselves. Great way to spend time with our son and talk about nothing much. Our day was nothing like the pictures of mobs of people drinking but both look like great fun.

My brother, his wife, his two kids (5 - 7), my parents & I arrived at Texas Tubes for some tubing fun down the Comal. We purchased tubes for everyone (including the children), asked if there was anything we needed to be aware of (they said no).

So off we went in our blissful ignorance. As we approached the first drop off, we noticed the chain / buoys and the side "chute". So the obvious conclusion was to head for the chute. This was great fun as the chute quickly took us around and dumped us where we needed to be (a little rough for the kids and the person should have advised that the kids should have rode with an adult, not in there own tube).

Still laughing and saying what fun it was, we didn't notice the next chute or the small drop-off that was quickly approaching (it would have been handy had Texas Tube told everyone to stay LEFT and to ALWAYS go down the chute). Since we were in the middle of the river and the current was to strong (by the time we noticed the second chute), my mother, my sister-in-law, brother & niece / nephew ended up going over the small drop-off. The adults went over and were all dumped from their tubes but were luckily pushed away from the small water fall / drop-off. The kids were not so luckily. The small drop-off / water fall created a situation in which their tubes were constantly pulled back and down.

With the kids crying and their mothers yelling "stay in the tube" (there were no life guards or anyone around), my dad & I (taking up the rear), moved our tubes into position to land by the kids (so we could push them out of the situation.) Note: While the kids had life jackets (adults didn't), the undertow was strong enough to drown them. At any rate, my dad & I were able to get the sobbing kids out of the situation. I was able to extract myself but my 67 year old father couldn't (the river / water fall kept pulling him back).

A lady that lives on the river told my father the only way to get out the situation was to get off the tube (while holding onto it) and push with his legs (towards the side). This "almost" helpful advice quickly backfired as the tube went shooting out from underneath my father (couldn't hold onto it). Left treading water while the undertow / water fall attempted to drown him, he went under 4 -5 times (with the family watching in horror) before I managed to work my way up stream with my tube and dropped in right next to him so he could hang on. He managed to wrap his arms / legs around the tiube (face was completely white / shaking). I was able to work him & my tube to the side and we finally broke free. Needless to say, we got out of the river and called it quits (my brother had also tried to help but injured himself on the slippery rocks while trying to help my dad).

At any rate, this didn't need to have happen. Things we discovered...the river was higher than normal (stronger currents / higher so people couldn't stand). Texas Tubes said nothing about the condition of the river. As I mentioned before, it would have been helpful if Texas Tubes mentioned the chutes and said "Stay To the Left passed the first chutes, don't get caught going down the middle and 5 - 7 year old children have no business going down the chutes / with or with-out adults."
