Float down the San Marcos River on a sturdy tube during this 6-hour tour from Austin. After a 45-minute drive from Austin to the river, escape the Texas heat as you float along the calm waters for up to three hours (depending on river flow). At the end of your float, your driver meets you for return to the Austin Visitor Center. Feel free to bring your own drinks and snacks to stash in the provided coolers with ice. Includes round-trip transport and use of equipment.
What to Expect

After meeting at the Austin Visitor Center at your designated time, you will hop on the air-conditioned bus and head down to the San Marcos river. No drinking is allowed on the buses due to city regulations. You will be able to bring your own beverages and snacks. Coolers and ice, as well as tubes for you and the coolers will be provided. The float will last anywhere from 2 to 4 hours depending on the flow of the river.

When you reach the end of the tubing experience, you will be picked up and brought back to Austin, hopefully feeling relaxed after having a good time on the river.

Had the best time!

Had a great day. We were with a group of young adults, we were the oldest on the tour, but we fit right in. The river was awesome, our tour guides were so amazing. Thank you so much for the greatest experience on the river.

Awesome Time!

Book the half-day river tubing for my sister's bachelorette this past July and we had a blast. A little pricey but round-trip transportation from downtown Austin, which made it super convenient since we did not rent a car, we were able to lock up our...More

We all wore flip flops or sandals and put them in our float that had our cooler. I would say water shoes are not necessary.
