Float the San Marcos River with other geeks!

Start your weekend off right with a relaxing day of floating down the San Marcos River! Ride in style (coach with AC) to San Marcos River, and let us take care of the rest. Just bring a small bag with change of clothes, bathing suit, towel, and your favorite beverage. We'll provide coolers with ice, transportation, lunch, snacks, and tube rentals. Then, get ready to enjoy the company of other geeks as you set out for a relaxing float! No previous floating / rafting experience is required (if you've never been on a river float before, think of this as a natural BYOB lazy river).
