Memorial Day weekend is often known as the unofficial start for the tubing season, but things will be a little different this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Tubers must follow social distancing guidelines. Only come tubing with those in your household. If you are sick or have been sick recently, stay home.
There are a few entrance points on the Guadalupe River to choose from. Some of the most popular are in New Braunfels.

A float on the river can range from one hour up to six hours, depending on the route you take.
