Comal River Tubing and Floating Tubes Adventure in New Braunfels
Corner Tubes offer tubes and river outfits on the Comal River and Guadalupe River in New Braunfels, Texas. Check out Corner Tubes early bird weekend special, one of America's favorite river outfitter since 1977.
Matthew Hoty, who took over the company just over a year ago, said he got into it because itís Ďa good, simple, fun business,í renting out tubes and providing shuttles to zip people back to their cars after their float, as well providing various sundries and anything else one might need to enjoy their trip down the river. He said April is the kick-off to the season and expects the weather to be warm enough to bring out a good crowd this weekend.†
Corner Tubes is located on the Comal River across the street from Hinman Island Park and Prince Solms Tube Chutes in New Braunfels. A small, historic German town, New Braunfels is home to the oldest bakery in Texas, the oldest dance hall and the Schlitterbahn, one of the largest water parks in the country. Its German roots run deep as the town hosts an Oktoberfest and Wurstfest annually. One of the biggest attractions in New Braunfels is, however, tubing down the Comal River.†
The Comal River became famous when Ripley's Believe It or Not featured it as the shortest river in the world at just 2.5 miles. †It is fed by Comal Springs in Landa Park where it fuels a swimming pool, past Schlitterbahn, and meets the Guadalupe River in the heart of downtown New Braunfels. Hoty said the river is very pure and clear, and stays near constant 73F degrees. He said that tubers prefer the Comal River to the Guadalupe which is not always as full and tends to be more choppy and rapid.†
The crystal clear water stays that way not only because it is fed by Comal Springs, but also because the city passed a law that prohibits anyone from bringing disposable containers on the river. The general store at Corner Tubes has floating ice chests and reusable containers available for purchase or rent.†
Corner Tubes has super friendly staff that will give you some brief safety tips and an update on how the river is flowing that particular day before you begin your float. Check out Corner Tubes website for news on specials and coupons at http://www.cornertubes.com see you on the Comal soon!!
