OK, maybe not screw floating the river, but this looks like a lot of fun.

Ever since I have moved to Texas, everyone has been on me about never floating a river. I will one day, but what's the worst part about floating the river? Getting absolutely melted by the Texas sun. Seems like the angry Mario sun is after you on some of those days and I have seen some of my friends with some epic sunburns from floating.


Now imagine you could float down the Texas river and not get sunburned? Apparently the past few years in San Marcos, they have been offering glow tours. I had no idea this was a thing until today. Looks like they have kayaks with LED lights underneath to light up the river as you float down. They have two tours they do per night at Paddle SMTX and costs $40 a person.

It takes about 90 minutes to complete and looks like a great time. So if you're looking for a different outdoor activity this summer, make a trip to San Marcos to check these out. These rafts are also translucent so you can check out the wildlife as you go down the San Marcos River.

I'm sure the fish enjoy the rave coming down the river every night. They offer paddle boarding and kayaking. I've never paddle boarded so I may have to get the nerve to try that out here. Also, it is B.Y.O.B so you don't miss out on that.

These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
