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!

The riverbanks are lined with 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. Tube floats in New Braunfels take several hours, so be prepared for a full day of relaxation and fun in the Texas sun!

In an effort to offset the cost of keeping New Braunfels’ rivers sparkling clean, an additional $2 City River Management Fee is collected on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays. This fee goes to additional garbage collection, recycling, and park management. It is added on top of any entry and rental fees charged by New Braunfels river outfitters.
