Are there any specific COVID-19 protocols we should know about?

We are following a stringent guideline of CDC protocols for our staff, equipment and shuttles.  You do need to bring a face covering for the shuttle ride.

What does it cost to float?

Toobing is $23 per person and rafting is $40 per person, regardless of which trip you take. All of your taxes, and shuttle ride are included in the cost.

Are there age and swimming requirements?

Yes, EVERYONE must be able to swim.  Age limits for the Guadalupe is 6 years old and on the Comal is 3 years old, however both are dependent on river flows, feel free to call and verify.

Can I bring my own toob?

You’re welcome to bring your own toob and the cost for the shuttle only is $20 per person. We preload all of our equipment, so while we are happy to shuttle personal equipment, we may ask for your assistance to load it depending on what it is.  We do have the equipment to inflate your floats, we may ask however to wait until you are at the appropriate put in so we are not hauling the equipment inflated.  If you don’t need a shuttle, then you can just pay the put in fee or exit fee of $10.

How do I get back to my car after I float?

All of our rentals include a shuttle ride, so we’ll either shuttle you upriver at the beginning of the trip and you’ll float back to your car, or you’ll float downriver and we’ll pick you up at the end.

What can I bring?

You can bring anything you’d like as long as it is in a Non-Disposable Container (for trips inside the city limits) and remember no glass and no Styrofoam. There’s nowhere to stop along the river, so make sure you pack enough drinks and any snacks you want to enjoy during your float.

Do you have lockers?

We don’t have lockers, but we do keep your keys and ID as a deposit so we recommend locking up everything that you don’t want to get wet or potentially lose.

Do I have to wear shoes?

While shoes aren’t required, we do recommend some type of footwear for getting in and out of the river, since it can be rocky and a bit slick. You’re welcome to leave them on or take them off during your trip.

What’s the difference between toobing and rafting?

Toobing is done in the individual black & or vinyl toobs, which are shaped like a donut. Toobs come with or without a bottom.  Rafting, on the other hand, comes with a paddle and can be done in the kayak-shaped inflatables for 1 or 2 people, or larger rafts that hold up to 6 people.

What does it cost to park?

On the weekends, we charge $10 to park, cash only from mid May through August beginning at 10am.  Parking is free on the weekdays.  Our Comal location has free parking at 193 S. Liberty and $10 at 600 Mather St. and a VIP lot at 145 W. Lincoln that is $20 per car next to our Exit!
