Texas Tubes is located in Texas State, right on the shoreline of the Comal River with their own Private River Entry, providing the easiest and fastest access to the Comal River for fun float trips and experiencing the New Braunfels Tube Chute or (Toob Shoot), simply Comal River Tubing at it's best! The float should take 2-2 1/2 hours.
Tubes with or without bottoms are only $20 each. You may bring your own tube if you wish, but the cost to enter the river is the same. It will also get you a ride back to where we started!
Alcohol is legal on the Comal River! 30qt Coolers per person are now allowed, double the size from last year! Texas Tubes has cooler tubes you can rent, or a you can get a tube to put your own in. You might also look for Groupons to Texas Tubes so you can float for less!
