What key information do I need to know for Tubing Tours?

Tour Austin provides all the essentials for river tubing: transportation, tube rental, coolers and ice, storage for valuables while tubing, and tour guides to facilitate your entire tubing adventure! You do not need to bring your own cooler.

River tubing guests must provide their own personal tubing items, e.g. proper swimwear, sandals, towels, sunscreen, hat and sunglasses, change of clothes, etc. We highly recommend water shoes, sandals, or footwear you don’t mind getting wet. We also strongly recommend storing all valuables (cell phone, wallet, keys, jewelry, anything you would regret losing in a river) on the bus, or leaving them at home. It is very easy to lose valuables in the river.

All of our tours are BYOB. Glass and Styrofoam are strictly forbidden on the river and on our vehicles. We repeat, GLASS AND STYROFOAM ARE NOT ALLOWED on the river or on our vehicles. We strongly suggest you bring water and snacks for the river and the drive home.
