So often we hear confusion from our guests regarding the newer rules of the river. Let me start by saying that nothing has changed for tubing trips above the Gruene bridge on the Guadalupe River. The “ban” is only in effect within the city limits of New Braunfels. There are restrictions in place on the Comal River and on the Guadalupe below the Gruene bridge. The restrictions are not based on what you drink, but on how you bring it to the river. Please follow this link to see the exact rules http://tubeinnewbraunfels.com/rules/.
