Is there a person I can talk to about all this?
Sure! Contact any of our city's outfitters. They'll have up to the minute information about river flows, rules, parking, and more.
What should I wear while I'm floating?
We recommend suitable footwear, sunscreen, your life jacket, and a smile!
What about hydration?
You're going to be out for a while and a lot of that time you'll be in the sun. Liquids are your friend.
Can I litter?
Can I get out of river onto private property?
I can't swim. Should I jump into a natural, flowing river?
Can I bring glass or foam stuff to New Braunfels' parks and rivers?
I really like having broken legs. Can I jump off area bridges, trees, or other natural or manmade things into the river or onto the ground?
How can I find out about how to enjoy the rivers safely?
Area outfitters will provide you with a safety briefing before you head out.
I'm not so sure I'm gonna be able to do this...
Please consider any age or physical limitations you or others in your party may have before entering our rivers..
What about lifejackets?
Lifejackets are always available. Just ask
I want to bring my kids. What about that?
Kids are welcome. We recommend Sundays and/or weekdays as KID FRIENDLY DAYS!
Are the rivers always the same?
No. The Comal River and Guadalupe River are all natural. That is, river flow, length of float trips, age cutoffs, and more can change daily due to weather and other circumstances. Check with an outfitter for the latest information.
Can I bring a keg on the river?
Yes. A keg is not considered a volume drinking device or a disposable container, therefore it would be permitted on the water. This is assuming it is used to fill other containers such as non-disposable cups, but not consumed directly from the keg. Also, it must be the type that is returnable for a deposit and refillable.
