Our Public Tubing Trip is the perfect way to enjoy the San Marcos River. Whether you are part of a small or large group, this experience is ideal. You'll get to meet new people and spend around 6 hours with us, from the moment we meet you at the designated location until we drop you off. The actual floating time is approximately 3 to 3.5 hours, depending on the condition of the river. We'll take care of transportation and provide tubes for you and your group to comfortably float down the river.

You'll have the opportunity to float in the refreshing spring-fed waters of the San Marcos River, soaking in the breathtaking views and warm sun rays, while making new friends.
