Comal River

The Comal River is the best Drift Dive in Texas!

Comal River in New Braunfels: at 2.5 miles long it is the shortest river in the world. The river starts and ends in New Braunfels. They are a lot of tubers in the summer time.

There are 3 points of entrance:
1. Landa R/V park (about a 1 ½ to 2 hour drift dive).
2. Hinman Island.
3. Lincoln-Garden Street Bridge, the last public exit.

You can go down the tube chute but I wouldn’t recommend it with scuba gear. Instead, try it with just your wetsuit and no other gear (anything not secured really well may be lost due to the force of the water at the end of the tube chute).

Many divers have found money, rings, keys, sunglasses, wallets, shoes, etc. in the Comal River, due to all the tubers.

Spring Lake: Unique in the world.

At the headwaters of the San Marcos River, more than 200 artesian springs bubble up to form Spring Lake. Here human history stretches back more than 12,000 years to the last ice age and natural history even further. Spring Lake is a jewel for divers.

Spring Lake at The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment is home to:

  • crystal-clear waters that remain a constant 72 degrees year-round.

Texas Clipper

image11

The Texas Clipper is a multilevel dive, meaning experienced, open-water certified divers can explore the A deck and the Promenade at 62 to 80 feet. Penetration divers, experienced with overhead environments, can tackle interior spaces to depths from 70 feet to over 110 feet. Meanwhile, because much of the wreck is more than 60 feet above the bottom it may be explored by entry level divers. We recommend entry level divers consider professionally guided dives.
