Public Trip Motor Coach

For The Energetic Ones

Absolutely perfect for bachelor and bachelorette parties! Our venue is the largest and most popular and has a huge rocky shore at the end! It’s the best stretch of the San Marcos River and across from the other major tubing places in San Marcos. This float is considered #1 in Texas for a social and party type atmosphere.

Better Prices and Vehicles

We were the first, and we’re still the best. Our competition uses normal and old school buses without AC and they are more expensive! All of our vehicles have AC and for larger groups 15+ we use party or coach buses! Our Make New Friends Trip base price is $69 per person, and our Door to Shore private trip is $75 per person.


Discount Prices and Premium Service

We organize everything and all you gotta do is bring the Beer or White Claw. Not only is everything included in the private package price like cooler setups, but you also get a ride where drinking is allowed to and from venue in a permitted vehicle, all for a great per person price. We do so many of these trips during the summer that we know how to streamline the process, and you save on transportation costs since this is our specialty.

It Just Makes Sense

Not only is it all a great deal and you do not have to worry about anything other than putting on sunscreen, but it is also the safest option. Why risk driving home after having a great time? Instead, enjoy yourself and go with the best and let us take care of the rest. From Door to Shore, we’ve got you covered.


Book a Trip

The absolute best option for a party type atmosphere if wanting to float from Austin and needing transportation for your group. All vehicles have AC (not just regular old school buses without AC like the other guys) and we have the closest and most popular venue. Being that we were the first, we’ve become the bachelor and bachelorette float trip headquarters.

All trips bypass the line to get you on the river, which means you don’t have to take the shuttle up to the start of the float after parking. We drive you there and back in a van, or for larger groups your own bus where the fun continues. Alcohol is allowed in all of our vehicles!

From $69/person

Options departing 11am – 12:30pm beside Thom’s Market at 160 East Riverside in Austin. This is near downtown and you can take an Uber/Lyft from most places for a couple bucks.

From $75/person

While both public and private trips take you to the same place to float with everyone, with private we pickup from your place. Also included are coolers, ice and cooler tubes. Saturday is 8 person minimum.
