What you'll do

You're in town for 2 days. Why waste 4 hours on a hot bus when you can tube the spring river near downtown Austin and make the most out of the rest of your day? Book this tube float trip and maximize your stay.

Here are the main benefits of booking this trip. We are floating near downtown Austin so less time on the road and you're definitely not sharing a bus with 50 other people. The river is slow and relaxing. No rapids. For the adventure seekers there is a bridge jump and plenty of rope swings. The springs make an excellent swimming hole. When the trip is over there is still plenty of fun to have without a tube and no bus to catch so you can hangout longer at Zilker Park or Barton Springs or in the river you just tubed!

There is what I can only describe as "Party Island" at the end of the float which is a sand bar where hundreds of people hangout in the middle of the river on the weekends.

This trip is nice because you can make it what you want from family friendly to Bachelor's in Paradise.

For me this is the best tubing experience in the area because the section we float is "The Real heart and soul of Austin"

I am the #1 experience host in Austin with several other tours including the "Kayaking with the Bats" trip which has over a thousand reviews.

When you book with me, my auto reply comes with a "must do in Austin list" so you can make the most of your trip!

It was a fun trip for what it was. However would like to see host arrange for a better drop off spot with easier access to transportation

The tube ride was awesome and super relaxing. We made new friends as we floated down the river and swam in the water when needing to cool off! It was set up great with the tour guide on the paddle board tossing us our drinks. Overall a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon, would definitely recommend!

Great river float, super chill and much easier than heading down to San Marcos on a bus. Our guide Esteban was great, kept us well hydrated and showed us all the rope swing and bridge jumping spots. 10/10

Was so awesome. If you have a bigger size group this is perfect! These guys work their butt off to provide an amazing experience.

The tubing was okay. We had a different tour guide than expected who did not know how to operate the trolling motor. Part of the group was late so it delayed the tour. We got stuck in a few areas and my husband ended up having to steer and the paddle board and help. The guide, Dirk, also kept turning the music down /off. We weren’t given extra time even though it started late or even apologized to for the inconveniences along the way.
