The Comal river, easily approached in Gruene and in New Braunfels, is an ideal stream for kayaking or floating down the river on an inner tube. Multiple companies will help you do either, while transporting you up or down-river for a safe return.

I imagine from the photos this is a zoo in the summer but it is very peaceful on an overcast winter day. Nice to see without the crowds. Beautiful river and scenery, lots of birds.
