Tube In New Braunfels - RIVERS ARE OPEN!
Every year, thousands of visitors and locals alike flock to our rivers to enjoy tubing in New Braunfels. The two pristine rivers, the Comal and the Guadalupe, converge right here, offering opportunities to tube, raft, swim, kayak and more!
Within this site you will find our recommended outfitters who specialize in equipping river-hungry patrons with everything they’ll need to have a fun – and safe – time on the water. Most offer air-conditioned shuttle service back from the public toobing exits as well. Expect to spend around $15-22 per person to float, this typically includes your round trip shuttle, tube rental, and fees. Tube floats in New Braunfels take several hours, so be prepared for a full day of relaxation and fun in the Texas sun!

Yes, you CAN DRINK on the Guadalupe and Comal Rivers (according to state law). And you CAN DRINK whatever you’d like – including, but not limited to, beer, wine, any other alcoholic beverage, juice, water or sports drinks.
All we require is that you drink alcohol responsibly and that you drink all beverages from a NON-DISPOSABLE container if you’re INSIDE THE CITY LIMITS**. There are tons of options for non-disposable containers. The same requirement applies to the food you bring on the river inside the City Limits.
There are no new rules on the Guadalupe River above the Gruene Bridge.
Please note, there are no lifeguards present – swim and float at your own risk.
