Anyone with even a 3rd-grade knowledge of geography would probably scratch their head over the notion of snorkeling in the middle of Texas. Well, believe it or not, some of the best snorkeling in the world happens smack-dab in the middle of Texas in the San Marcos River! There is a whole world of adventure to be had underwater with a new snorkeling tour company, (aptly named) Snorkel TX.

Snorkel TX is a unique outdoor adventure company hosting guided snorkeling trips in the San Marcos river. Offering 1-hour professionally-guided snorkeling trips in the crystal clear, spring-fed waters of the San Marcos River, Snorkel TX is the first snorkel company in Central Texas and the only one of its kind in the state. Co-Founder, Chris Hogue says, “We are offering a totally new way to experience Texas’ aquatic river life. While the phrase, ‘snorkeling’ is often associated with reefs, we are actively trying to redefine that.

Tour groups with Snorkel TX can expect to see over 15 different species of fish, turtles, and plants. The snorkeling experience with Snorkel TX has been described by seasoned snorkelers as, “like scuba diving in the Bahamas.” For only $50, guests are given a snorkel, mask, fins, and transportation to and from drop off points along the river. You must be 18 years of age and older to participate.

Snorkel TX offers snorkeling tours year-round and also organizes monthly river clean-up trips. These clean-up trips are offered for free with the assumption that participants will help pick up trash and come away with a better appreciation for our rivers. Snorkel TX offers guests an education and a deeper connection to our waterways all in a day spent exploring the underwater world of central Texas. To learn more or book a tour, go to their website at
