Are there age and swimming requirements?

Yes! EVERYONE must be able to swim AND be at least 6 years old. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Can I bring my own tube?

You’re welcome to bring your own tube and still utilize our shuttle service for $20/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, however we may ask you to wait until you are at the appropriate river put-in so we are not hauling the equipment inflated. We are not responsible for any lost or damaged personal tubes! We cannot service a popped personal tube during your float. If you don’t need a shuttle, then you can just pay the put-in/exit fee of $10.

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

All of our rentals include a shuttle ride, so depending on which float you choose, we’ll either shuttle you upriver at the beginning of the trip and you’ll float back to your car (at The Double and Huaco Raft) or you’ll float downriver and we’ll pick you up at the end and bring you back to your car (at Gruene and Riverbank). Our Comal location will shuttle you to Prince Solms Park and shuttle you back to the Comal shop after your float.

What can I NOT bring on the river with me?

For floats within the city limits per New Braunfels ordinances (which includes our Gruene, Comal, and Double Locations) you CANNOT bring any disposable containers (i.e. cans, water bottles, etc.) on the river with you. See our Keep New Braunfels Clean graphic below. NO glass or styrofoam is allowed on any of our floats, per state law. You are still allowed to bring food, beverages, and coolers on the river with you, as long as it follows the guidelines depicted in the image below!

Do you have lockers?

We don’t have lockers, but we can safely keep a set of keys and ID behind our counters as a deposit (required for tubing and rafting) We recommend locking up everything else in your car, or leaving at home, anything that you don’t want to get wet or potentially lost.

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. If you’ve forgotten your water shoes, we sell Aqua Socks in all sizes at most of our locations.

What’s the difference between tubing and rafting?

Tubing is done in the individual black or vinyl tubes, which are shaped like a donut. Tubes come with or without a bottom. Rafting comes with a paddle and can be done in our kayak-shaped inflatables for 1 or 2 people, or larger rafts that hold up to 6 people (river-levels permitting). Tubing is $25/person. Rafting is $40/person. Our rafting float from Gruene is LONGER in length than our tubing float.

What does it cost to park?

From May-August at Gruene, The Double, Riverbank, and Huaco Raft, we charge $10 to park (cash only) beginning at 10am on Saturdays and Sundays. Parking is free at these locations (except for certain holidays) Monday-Friday. Our Comal location has free parking at 193 S. Liberty and a VIP lot at 145 W. Lincoln that is $20/car next to our river exit!
