The 2021 Big Gay River Float

The date has been set for this year’s Big Gay River Float. Mark SUNDAY, JULY 18, 2021 on your calendars!

As in previous years, floaters will have two options. The first option is for those who want to ride the bus from Austin. The second option is for those who want to drive their own vehicle. It includes tube rentals and a shuttle back to your vehicle. This year’s we’ve added a VIP option for Austin attendees as well as bringing back the bus package for San Antonio.

The float is 2 1/4 miles and lasts about 3 – 3 1/2 hours. The full trip will total approximately 5 – 5 1/2 hours. NOTE: Float time will vary depending on the speed of the river which will vary depending on recent rains.
