There are 3 main float trips down the Guadalupe River:
- Usually you must have rented your tube and be on the water by 12:00 NOON for the Long – 6hr trip
- You must have rented your tube and be on the water by 3:00 PM for the Medium – 3hr trip
- Short – Horseshoe river tubing trip
It is only a short walk to the beginning of the “horseshoe“…
- Medium – 3 hour river tubing trip
Once you have gone past the first big bridge, which is the end of the “horseshoe” you will encounter 3 old dams, stay to the right on the first one,
- Long – 6 hour guadalupe river float trip
Once you have gone past the 4th river crossing bridge or the “Second River Exit” you will have about another 1 1/2 hours of pure river enjoyment!
All Trips include FREE PARKING, and the 2 longer trips include FREE SHUTTLE ride back to your car.
Alternative Route: You can skip the horseshoe and take the short walk downhill on the paved path with stairs and begin before the first bride, this route will take about 45 minutes off of your trip time and is easiest. This is preferable for heavy tubes and large groups.
Comal County Sheriff’s officers like to post up about 100 yards before the first bridge all the way up to the last bend in the Horseshoe before the big rocks if your floating. They will be on your right hand side, possibly in the water, and usually with binoculars. They do give out citations, check I.D.’s and search coolers. Be responsible. No Glass of any kind is allowed, nor is Styrofoam.
