The Comal River
If you’ve never been floating in Texas, the Comal is a great place to start. The float is extremely popular one and is only 3 miles long. The Comal is heavily shaded and part of the waters of the Comal feed the famous Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels. There are ample businesses that will provide you with a tube and a ride back to your car. The Rockin’ R and Texas Tubes are just two of the many great options for tubing trips down the Comal.
The Frio River
A little further West you’ll find the famed Frio River which is one of the most famous and undeniable favorites for floating in Texas. The river is very long, scenic, and as the name implies, muy frio (“frio” is Spanish for “cold”). Popular lodging and tubing near the Frio can be found in Garner State Park and Concan, Texas.
The Guadalupe River
The portion of the Guadalupe River that runs through the Texas Hill Country is quite possibly the most popular Texas tubing spot. Tubes, cabins and campsites can be found all through central Texas, from San Marcos, to New Braunfels, to Gruene and San Antonio. You can take a two hour float, a three hour float, or a six hour float. These are average times of course, because time seems to stand still when you’re floating the cool waters of the Guadalupe through the lush shade of the bald cypress trees that line its shores.
