Choose Between Two Options

During each 30-minute tour, passengers climb aboard handmade boats that glide along the San Marcos River. Beneath the glass bottom, fish and turtles swim through the clear waters as a guide points out each species and narrates fun facts about the environment. Tours run daily from 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.; kids aged 3 and younger ride free.

The Meadows Center

Run by Texas State University, The Meadows Center (formerly Aquarena) introduces visitors to the lush diversity of the San Marcos Springs and intricate system of waterways. Glass-bottomed boats set out for guided tours of Spring Lake, gazing at the aquatic life and University midterm papers below. Above the springs that bubble up from the bottom, soft shell turtles and bluegill sunfish swim in the clear waters and songbirds survey the sky. Eight endangered species populate the springs, including beetles and two species of salamander. On land, visitors can explore gardens of native Texan plants or a hall of nature exhibit.
