Tubing Float Trips

Since 1972, Whitewater Sports Tubing has attracted over two million customers from virtually every state in the country.

Whitewater Sports offers the best in Custom Tubing trips down the Guadalupe River. From Whitewater there are a few options for your float and should be discussed at the tube shack with an attendant before you head out.

The Fourth Crossing

One of our favorite Guadalupe River trips begins when you get in at Whitewater and travel down to the Fourth Crossing. A small bridge marks each crossing, but don’t worry about missing the exit. The fourth crossing bridge is clearly marked “4th Crossing.” Exiting left and at the top of the hill is a phone with tubing company numbers listed so you can let Whitewater employees know when you have exited the river.

Please note that it may take anywhere from 15-30 minutes to be picked up depending on traffic. The number of Guadalupe River people tubing and other factors are uncontrollable but on high traffic days, like Saturday, there should be another shuttle arriving shortly.

Tubing the Horseshoe

Or, you can have the free shuttle drive you a short distance, up the Guadalupe River, to what is called “The Top of the Horseshoe.” From there you will float around the Horseshoe and back to Whitewater Sports.

If that’s not enough you can always go back up to the top of the Horseshoe and float the same course again, or, continue on down the Guadalupe to the Fourth Crossing. (See description above.)
