Did you know there are at least 17 different river outfitters in the Texas Hill Country around New Braunfels that supply inner tubes, kayaks, canoes and rafts to enjoy our beautiful Guadalupe and Comal rivers and other bodies of water?

The Hill Country Outdoor Guide strongly urges visitors to contact area outfitters or local park personnel to obtain river flow information before heading to the water. At certain flows the watercourses can be very dangerous if you are not properly trained and equipped and at other times you could end up dragging your boat over a lot longer distance of riverbed than you had anticipated. Both of those situations should be avoided so get the low down from knowledgeable sources before hitting the water.

Many of the outfitters the Guide lists rent kayaks for use on area streams and rivers. Others rent kayaks for use on flat water such as the various reservoirs/lakes in the region and areas where smaller dams have been erected across rivers. We have identified where the closest watercourses are to the various outfitters so you will have an idea of what paddling conditions should be expected.

Be sure to contact the outfitters to ask whether they rent white water, recreational or touring boats to make sure what they have is what you need. You also should contact them to determine whether nearby trips feature moving water or flat water and it always is a good idea to call and reserve a boat for your use. If you want to obtain information regarding the weather forecast or water conditions up in the hills, you can do so by going to the Local Weather button provided at www.hillcountryoutdoorguide.com.
