Tubing down the Comal River is something my dad has been wanting to do for a while. So, realizing that summer break is almost over, my dad planned a quick trip to New Braunfels. It helped that he had business there as well.
Tubing down the Comal River can be very relaxing once you get used to the water. Sometimes the water can be very cold.
When renting a tube, it is preferable to rent one with a bottom. Using a tube with a bottom is must more relaxing.
The tube ride lasts about 2 1/2 hours and includes two simulated water experiences, the first of which includes going down a water way that leads to turbulent water. It is pretty fun. Note, though, that these water experiences can be skipped.
