Here's the general info on toobing:

Texas Tubes http://www.texastubes.com/

Rockin R River Outfitters http://www.rockinr.com/

The lower Guadalupe tends to have 20 somethings and lots of drinking. It has shallows and rapids and slow deep water. I would get a tube with a bottom for this trip.

The Comal, has a slightly older crowd, and slightly less drinking. It runs through a pretty urban (by river standards - houses and condos.) It has deep water so very little danger of bumping your bottom and a cement tube chute that is loads of fun.

For a float that’s a little more off the beaten path try starting at the Bergheim Campgrounds. We did this last summer ago, six of us took off from work at about one o’clock, drove up there, and were on the river by 2:30. We encountered only 3 other groups, and had a great time. The float took about 3 1/2 hours. We take homemade sangria, snacks and water. Life is good

Tubes were $12 each which includes the shuttle back to the campground. They hold your car keys for you – don’t ever take them on the river with you.
