Rave Reviews from Our Customers

Such a nice relaxing day!

"My husband and I are local but had never tubed this stretch of the river. It was so nice!! It took about 3 1/2 hours from start to finish. It cost $32 total- we brought our own tubes and cooler and rented a cooler tube. It was relaxing and beautiful. Would highly recommend. Pack snacks and drinks!!!"

Texas state tubes awesome!

"Paid $18 for a tune and spent 3 great relaxing hours floating down the river. I would recommend hiring a cooler and and float $15 more, but well worth it. It's like a party atmosphere on the river with people drinking and playing music all the way down, very good fun and friendly. Highly recommended - a great way to escape the heat"

Relaxing lazy day!

"What a great way to disconnect and hang with some friends! Took an earlier trip 11:15 to avoid the mass crowds. It worked- Parking was easy, did not wait on any lines and had plenty of space on the river. $10 for the cooler tube was way worth it."

It was perfect

"Did this for a bachelorette party and it was amazing. Got picked up from Austin and bussed to the river and brought back home. The package came with coolers and cooler floats + tubes for all”
