Helpful Tubing Tips & Checklist for the Comal River

ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES ARE LEGAL on the Comal River and you can drink while you Tube. The previous "Can Ban" ordinance is back. Disposable containers are illegal on the river and cooler size is restricted to 16 qts or smaller. Click here and here for examples. Please drink responsibly and do not litter.

DO NOT TAKE VALUABLES ON THE RIVER as most items sink and are never found.  Lock them in your vehicle well hid. Texas Tubes does not have lockers or storage on property. Do not bring anything from your vehicle that you are not taking on the river with you. The only thing we will hold (as a courtesy) is car keys, and only with a picture ID.

Lifejackets are recommended for weak swimmers. Non swimmers are discouraged from going on the river. Texas Tubes offers free lifejackets for our customers.
DO NOT LITTER! Dispose of all trash properly. Dump all trash in designated receptacles. Help keep our rivers, parks and Texas beautiful.

GLASS  and STYROFOAM ARE ILLEGAL on any Texas waterway and can be confiscated with possible fines or arrest. Yeti and other expensive coolers are not recommended on the river. Texas Tubes is not responsible for lost or stolen merchandise.

PARK ONLY in designated areas, cars in undesignated areas may be towed.  Parking is free on property owned by Texas Tubes.  If full, other lots may have a charge to park.

CHILDREN should be accompanied by an adult for tubing on the river. Texas Tubes will not rent for children 3 and younger. Life vests / jackets are recommended for all children and non swimmers and are complimentary to our customers. No Life Guards on duty, use caution, think safety first!

SUN BLOCK should be applied both BEFORE and DURING your floating trips.

TENNIS SHOES, water shoes or other footwear are recommended to protect against cuts, scrapes and bruises while walking to and from your entry/exit points. Shoes also protect your feet from the rocky river bottom.

A CAP, HAT or VISOR and SUNGLASSES will help shield your face, eyes and head from the rays of the sun.

DRINK PLENTY OF WATER before and during float to keep yourself hydrated.
