Water/River Recreation
Fed by natural springs coming from the Edwards Aquifer, the Comal River was for a long time the main attraction that drew tourists to New Braunfels. From the aquifer, the river flows through scenic Landa Park and passes through Downtown New Braunfels and nearby Schlitterbahn Waterpark until it eventually merges with the Guadalupe River. This is a very gentle float, generally on tubes and offers shorter float times.

For a less gentle (though still fairly easy) trip down the river, visit one of the many river outfitters that offer trips down the Guadalupe. You can tube, raft, kayak, etc. for up 8 hours. The scenery is beautiful and the sunshine feels wonderful! The Guadalupe River has headwaters near Kerrville, TX where it eventually flows into Canyon Lake, then it is released creating what most Texans know as the epicenter for summer tubing and year-round fly-fishing!
