San Marcos River Tubing Rules

San Marcos River Tubing Rules



Like all the great Texas river, the San Marcos River also has its own set of rules. They are meant to make the experience of everyone on the river better as well as keep the river as clean and beautiful as it can be.


General rules


In line with regulations of other rivers, San Marcos River tubing rules strictly prohibit littering of any kind. In many cases, this involves throwing empty bottles and cans into the river, as drinking while floating is a favorite pastime of tubers.


Every tuber expecting to have junk while floating on the river is expected to carry a litter bag or a similar container in which he or she will throw garbage and then appropriately dispose of it after the ride. Despite all the regulations and the clear negative impact that littering has on the river, a lot of tubers still go the easy route and throw the empty liquid containers into the river. While it’s certainly convenient, you might end up with a hefty fine of several hundred dollars if you are caught – in fact, the minimum fine for polluting the San Marcos River is now $250.


Since styrofoam is quite the pollutant, all forms of it are also prohibited on the river.


Other specific regulations


While San Marcos River tubing rules allow alcohol consumption while floating, public drinking is actually forbidden. This means that you can’t continue sipping when on the ground in any of the nearby areas, including parks, dams and bridges. Failure to comply to this regulation can also result in a fine that can ruin your day.


All coolers brought on the liver must also have secure lids on them – you can’t just bring any cooler, and if you do, you could end up being fined. It should also be fairly obvious that any actions that could endanger other tubers are strictly forbidden, such as unsafe entry into the river or dangerous stunts.


It’s true that the San Marcos River doesn’t have as many rules as some others, as due to the river’s size, there isn’t really a need to regulate things such as the size of floatation devices. The river’s size also means that there aren’t as many policemen patrolling the river, or simply that they aren’t seen as often as they might be on the Comal. However, don’t mistake less law enforcement for no law enforcement – not abiding by the river’s rules can easily get you fined should you end up being caught, and your behavior might even be brought to the police’s attention by other tubers should you cause enough trouble for others.
