Float In Property Rules

City's River Rules

These are the rules set by the CITY OF NEW BRAUNFELS. These are not established by Float In. City officials have the authority to enforce these rules while you are in the COMAL RIVER or across the river on CITY PROPERTY. Tickets for violating CITY rules while visiting Float In are not responsibility or given by Float In staff. Tickets are legal and handled through the CITY. We are a private location offering you our own services.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Yes, visit the Experience tab and choose your option, Day Passes or Cabana and book from there!

Yes! Love dogs, please keep them on a leash & pick up after them. *If your dog does not get along with other dogs, people, children; we kindly ask you be a responsible pup-parent and leave them at home.

Yes, you may bring in outside food and drink in a cooler. This will have a corkage fee of $20 per cooler. No glass is allowed, so all alcohol must be in a plastic bottle or other container. Please see Property and City’s River Rules on this page for more detailed rules on drinks and containers for the Comal River. Coolers have a 70qt max. (70qts is quite large, if you are unsure of your coolers size, it likely falls under this limit)

We recommend and partner with the following locations!

No, we do not own the river and items lost in the river do not get turned into us. 

Weekends and Holidays draw large crowds, with Saturdays being our busiest day of the week. We recommend families to visit us during the week.

The Can Ban is a City ordinance in place & enforced by New Braunfels to help keep our rivers clean.  You CANNOT have cans (or any disposable item) in the water, in your hand in the water, in a cooler in the water.

Do: Bring your own re-usable container. Or purchase one at Float In. Ex. Yeti’s, Tumblers, Camelbak’s, athletic water bottle, 

Dont: Take cans, plastic water bottles, snack wrappers etc. in the water.

Do: Listen to law enforcement and protect our river.

Dont: Cause ruckus and damper others days

Glass & Styrofoam are not allowed in the river, alongside it, nor on our property. Remember, pickles and jam like to come in glass, the material is still not allowed. Please re-package ANY AND ALL glass or Styrofoam items into re-usable metal/hard plastic ones. 

Depending on the crowds, the float is about 1.5 hours to 2 hours from our property to the last public exit.

The Comal is a natural river and its depth varies throughout. From 2 feet up to 16 feet. Our property is in an amazing location where many can stand and hangout in the water. Life vests are recommended for all weak swimmers & available to borrow on site for free.

This year having pre-purchased day passes will ensure a quicker entry process and we highly recommend purchasing in advance. Waivers will also be digital this year and pre-purchase of day passes grants the ability for all party members to sign before arrival. Head to the EXPERIENCE tab to book your passes.

We are excited to share our brand-new tubes with you. With that, outside tubes will not be allowed. This is a perk available only to members. Head to the MEMBERSHIPS tab and join today.

No. You cannot access the City Tube Chute from our property or go through our property to access. The Chute is owned by the City of New Braunfels and there is a fee to use it. Follow this link for more Chute information including the fee’s associated.
