Mild currents, clear water, and a host of treasures left behind by tubers make the river an ideal local for scuba diving.
Because the Comal maintains a temperature of approximately 72 degrees year round, divers are present in both the summer and the winter. Thousands of people from all walks of life visit New Braunfels to tube down the Comal River in the spring & summer to enjoy the river’s natural beauty. Tubing on the Comal provides a less intense alternative to tubing on the nearby Guadalupe river, where one may encounter frequent rapids and boulders to paddle around. Schlitterbahn Water Park is built along a 16-acre stretch of the river.
