Spring Break at Tube Haus!   -    Tube Haus has been described as a "Top Choice" of "places to go" and "things to do" for Spring Break in Central Texas", also as "One of the Best Low Cost / Cheapest Spring Break Destinations in Texas", and finally, as "One of the Most Popular Places to go in Texas for a Spring Break Destination" by college students in Texas because... Tube Haus is uniquely located in the scenic and beautiful Texas Hill Country in close proximity to Austin, San Antonio and right next door to New Braunfels & Gruene, TX for some of the best night life in the entire USA!

Austin's Music Scene is 2nd to none and features some of the best live bands anywhere in the world! Just 55 minutes south of Austin in San Antonio, you have the famous San Antonio River Walk, packed with bars and restaurants lining the banks of the picturesque San Antonio River. In New Braunfels, there are 2 areas offering great night life, bars, restaurants, music and entertainment... downtown New Braunfels, right smack in the City Square / Roundabout and adjoining streets, and the 2nd area is in nearby town of Gruene, Texas, which includes Gruene Hall, the oldest Dance Hall in Texas! Most "Spring Breakers" come out to Tube Haus for their "Day Time Activity" and have a blast floating down the Guadalupe River on inner tubes with coolers filled with their favorite beverages and snacks (Alcohol is legal on the Guadalupe River). After a day of tubing down the Guadalupe River, "Spring Breakers" head back to their hotels, hit a shower and then head to their evening destinations for dinner, dancing, music, and entertainment to round out their adventure filled day! Tube Haus will be open daily (7 Days a Week), starting on Saturday, March 8th, 2014 for Spring Break.

Tube Haus!  Look for the BIG Texas Flag painted on our Huge Billboard and you'll find the best river tubing and float trips on inner tubes in Texas! We're located at the beginning of "The Famous Horseshoe Loop" section of the Guadalupe River, which is a 1 mile stretch of the river shaped just like a Horseshoe! (Click here to see an Aerial View of the "Horseshoe Loop" and then hover your mouse over the river.) As you look at the Aerial Map of the Horseshoe Loop, you'll see a Bridge at each end of the Horseshoe. If you hover your mouse over each Bridge, you'll see an "info tag" pop up. The Bridge on the left side the "Entry Point" is where you will begin your Float Trip. The Bridge on the right side of the Horseshoe is the "Exit Point" for our "Short Float", if you continue floating past that Bridge, you will float another 1 1/2 miles to the "4th Crossing Bridge" and "Take Out Point", which marks the end of our "Long Float".

If you're looking for a great place to enjoy a Float Trip on the Guadalupe River with friends, family and your dog, Tube Haus is the Oasis you've been searching for. Tube Haus is "pet friendly" (referring to dogs) and you can find out the details in our "Tubing Checklist", see item number 16 at the bottom of the list for information about "tubing with your dog or floating the river with your dog" at Tube Haus! Tube Haus is only 13 miles from New Braunfels... just a short drive to the famous Horseshoe Loop on the Guadalupe River, where you can enjoy an awesome river float on inner tubes, with a cooler full of your favorite beverages and snacks!

Our 3 biggest weekends of the Tube Season are Memorial Day Weekend, 4th of July Weekend, and Labor Day Weekend, and Tube Haus will be open daily for "Spring Break each year (weather permitting)", from 9am to 5pm. We highly recommend that you plan ahead for all 3 Holidays, especially if you need Lodging, Camping or an RV site because Lodging and Campsites usually book up pretty quick just before school lets out for the summer. Tube Season at Tube Haus generally runs from the first week in March through the end of September each year, however depending on the weather each year, this time frame may be longer or shorter... good weather allows for a longer season and bad weather shortens the Tube Season.

     Tube Haus is one of the original Outfitters that began renting inner tubes back in 1978 on the Guadalupe River and now specializes exclusively in "Guadalupe River Tubing". From the very beginning, Tube Haus has always been considered one of the best tubing destinations in Texas. Tube Haus is located near New Braunfels in Canyon Lake, Texas, which has been deemed the "Water Recreation Capital of Texas" by the Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce. Tube rental fees cover all day tubing, parking and your return shuttle from our Long float... choose between our Long float or our Short float, or do both if you arrive early enough (our Short float does not require a shuttle, only our Long float requires a shuttle). Float times vary daily based on River Levels, River Conditions, and Release Rates from the Canyon Lake Dam, please check with our rental desk for daily Float times (830-964-3011). Guadalupe River Tubing is one of the most enjoyable River Sports on Tubes!

     We accept Cash, M/C, Visa & Discover.    See our "Tube Rental Rates & Tubing Prices" for Inner Tube Rentals, Cooler Tubes, Tubes with Bottoms, Tubes without Bottoms, Cooler Rentals and a complete list of prices and don't forget about our "Tubing Coupon" for a discount on your tube rentals!

     In 2007, 2010, 2011, & 2012, the New Braunfels City Council passed new River Rules, River Laws, Ordinances and Restrictions for anyone participating in River Tubing, Rafting or any other water activities within the City Limits of New Braunfels on the Guadalupe and Comal Rivers. These New River Rules, Floating & Tubing Laws, Regulations and River Restrictions stirred up the whole River Tubing community all over Texas and beyond! People were extremely upset and law suits were filed by local Outfitters in protest, which are still ongoing. A few of the biggest questions we get at The Tube Haus in our emails is... "What are the New River Rules and will they affect me when I go Tubing on the Guadalupe River in Canyon Lake?" Is there a "Can Ban" in Canyon Lake? Are there any Cooler Restrictions in Canyon Lake? The simple answer is NO! The New River Rules passed by the New Braunfels City Council only apply to water activities "within the City Limits of New Braunfels" and do not apply to the upper Guadalupe River in Canyon Lake, which is outside the City Limits of New Braunfels. The Tube Haus is located outside the City Limits of New Braunfels and thus you do not have to worry about any of New Braunfels' River Rules and/or Restrictions. Drinking is legal on the river and more specifically, it's legal to drink alcohol on the Guadalupe River in Canyon Lake. Tube Haus has posted a Chart on our Website where you can compare the New Braunfels' River Rules with the Texas State River Rules to see the differences. Basically nothing has changed as far as Rules are concerned on the Guadalupe River in Canyon Lake except for one New Rule pertaining to "plastic containers" mainly used for Jello Shots... check out it out here, the latest, most up-to-date River Rules: 2014 Guadalupe and Comal River Rules. P.S. Alcohol has not been banned from the Guadalupe River... please drink responsibly.

     In regards to Cooler Restrictions, there are NO Cooler Restrictions in Canyon Lake... bring any size Cooler you like and as many Coolers as you need! Note: There is a strict law which is heavily enforced for all rivers in Texas that forbids any kind of Styrofoam on the river, so please do not bring any "Styrofoam Coolers or products" with you on the river or you may be fined up to $500. Glass is also illegal on the river, so bring beverages and snacks in cans, plastic, or paper containers.

     Cooler Tips for River Tubing:
The best Coolers for River Tubing range in size from a 28 Quart capacity up to a 50 Quart capacity... in our experience, Coolers larger than 50 Quarts become very heavy and difficult to handle, so unless you have 2 strong individuals to handle your Cooler, it's better to use a 50 Quart Cooler or smaller for easier handling and a more enjoyable day of Guadalupe River Tubing! Also, Coolers larger than 50 Quarts may not fit into an inner tube because they're too big or have an odd size that prevents it from fitting into an inner tube. Another thing to consider when deciding what size cooler to use and how many coolers to use, is which Float Trip you plan on taking. You will not need as many beverages and/or snacks on our Short Float (a 1 mile float) as you would need on our Long Float (a 2 1/2 mile float).

Coleman 40 Quart Wheeled Cooler, perfect for Guadalupe River Tubing in Canyon Lake, TX., where there is No Can Ban!

     We really like the Coleman 40-Quart Wheeled Cooler with a comfortable tow handle, large sturdy wheels, and a hinged lid with 4 built in beverage holders (it's extremely important to make sure you get the model with the "hinged lid" or you stand a 99% chance of losing your lid somewhere on the river unless it's attached to your cooler, believe us, we've seen it hundreds of times! Coincidentally, take a look at the photo immediately to the right and you'll see a girl floating down the Guadalupe River holding a detached Cooler Lid in one hand and a beer in the other hand! We're pretty sure she never made it back with her lid and now she has a cooler with no lid. The 40 Quart Wheeled Coleman Cooler will fit nicely into a Tube and is easy to move around when it's fully loaded! (We're not plugging this Cooler for Coleman or getting paid, we simply just like it and thought you might like it too!)

Facts About the Guadalupe River:
How long is the Guadalupe River? The length of
Guadalupe River (proper) is approximately 230 miles, however if you include the distance of the 2 originating forks (or branches) in western Kerr County feeding the Guadalupe River, it would be approximately 250 miles in length. The Guadalupe River "proper" is the point where the 2 originating forks join and where the 230 mile length begins. The Guadalupe River is one of the most popular rivers in Texas for recreational water activities, including river tubing, swimming, snorkeling, trout fishing, bass fishing, kayaking, canoeing,  and rafting. The Guadalupe River headwaters begin north of Kerrville, TX and continue down past Victoria, TX to San Antonio Bay into the Gulf of Mexico. As the Guadalupe River twists and turns and winds its way through the Texas Hill Country on its way down to the Gulf of Mexico, by far the most visited and popular section of the Guadalupe River for water recreation and river tubing is the famous "Horseshoe Loop", which is a 1 mile stretch of the Guadalupe River shaped just like a giant Horseshoe and is located just below the Canyon Lake Dam and Reservoir, in Canyon Lake, TX. Considered the most significant reservoir on the Guadalupe River, the Canyon Lake Dam & Reservoir began construction in 1959 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and was completed in 1964. The Guadalupe River is extremely beautiful and scenic, and provides water flow for recreational, domestic and agricultural uses throughout its entire length, from Kerrville all the way down to the Gulf of Mexico. The "GBRA" (Guadalupe Blanco River Authority) is the local agency (in Seguin, TX) that manages Guadalupe River Flows and Release Rates from the Canyon Lake Dam when Canyon Lake levels are at or below 909 feet Above Mean Sea Level (AMSL). When Canyon Lake levels are above 909 feet (AMSL), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers takes over the management of Guadalupe Release Rates and River Flows as a "Flood Management Agency". In 2002, a massive flood event took place, breaching the Canyon Lake Spillway with such a powerful and destructive force, that it carved a huge "Gorge" just below the Canyon Lake Spillway, uncovering and exposing some incredible archeological finds and geological formations, prompting the creation of the Canyon Lake "Gorge Preservation Society" (GPS), who offer "guided tours" of the newly formed astoundingly beautiful Gorge!
     Back in the mid to late 1960's, it was determined by the TPWD (Texas Parks and Wildlife Department) that the cold water discharges / releases from the Canyon Lake Dam were consistently cold enough to support Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout year round, which led to an annual stocking program of Trout for a 10 mile stretch of the Guadalupe River just below Canyon Lake Dam, continuing down "River Road" to the "2nd Crossing and Camp Huaco Springs. GRTU (Guadalupe River Trout Unlimited) is a non-profit organization that was formed to protect, preserve and improve river conditions for "trout habitats" for fishermen, young and old, for generations to come. GRTU has had a major impact on Guadalupe River Release rates to help protect and preserve the trout during low water and drought years on the Guadalupe River. For more information on River Levels, River Flow Rates, River Conditions, Release Rates, Canyon Lake Levels, Daily River Updates, click: Guadalupe River Conditions - Canyon Lake, TX

 

Tube Haus will be open on "Independence Day" and the entire 4th of July Weekend 2014, 9am to 7pm daily!
