Tubing down the Guadalupe River via River Sports Tubes is an experience the whole family will love. Offering a short, medium or long float, it's easy to plan your afternoon of tubing based on the needs of the family. If taking smaller children, a short float would be more than enough for an afternoon of fun. A longer float is better suited for older children and adults who can manage soaking in the Texas sun all afternoon. Otherwise, you'll be too tired and sunburned to come out of your New Braunfels Inn the next day. Offering military and group discounts, River Sports Tubes is an affordable excursion that the whole family will love.
