Spring-Fed Adventures is a local outfitter based in San Marcos, Texas. We offer a variety of guided, all-inclusive trips on three Central Texas rivers: the Llano, San Marcos and Colorado.

We specialize in multi-day river trips — from casual overnights to 3- and 4-day expeditions. We also offer guided day trips and paddling lessons for those who want to return home after a day on the water. We provide quality gear along with top-notch meals on these trips, and customers have the option of paddling a kayak on their own or a canoe with a partner. We are happy to provide on-the-water instruction, and safety is always our number one priority.

We do not have a fixed location, and this gives us the freedom to alternate between our three "home rivers" on a regular basis. Our schedule is dictated by the seasons, weather and water levels, and we operate by reservation only. Check out our online calendar to see our current schedule, and to find the river trip that is right for you.
