Canoeing the San Marcos River

Trip Overview

Join the Adventure Trip Program as we float, swim, and paddle down the San Marcos River and enjoy the beautiful natural habitat!  We’ll break for a picnic lunch, on us! 

The San Marcos River is known as the “cleanest river in Texas.” The river springs to life from the Edwards Aquifer, creating a beautiful clear-running river that remains a cool 72 degrees year-round. The upper San Marcos River is one of the most biologically diverse aquatic ecosystems known in the southwestern United States and has a number of endemic species that are isolated to the upper 4.5 miles of the river.
