One of the biggest tourist attractions in the Hill Country are the two beautiful rivers. The Guadalupe is fed by releases from Canyon Lake which can vary . The Comal starts as a spring in Landa Park and offers a consistent float experience with limited rapids, it and eventually meets up with the Guadalupe.
Tubing is a big business with tube companies all up and down the rivers. All offer shuttles and a convenient way to get in and out of the rivers but sometimes there can be a bit of a hike. Come prepared with sunscreen because depending on the time of year and weather a “float” can take a few hours.
Each river has its own specific set of regulations and generally speaking – you CAN drink on our waterways, but please put your beverage of choice in a non-disposable container – examples here.
The New Braunfels Chamber offers more information on “tubing” the rivers.
