Spring-Fed Adventures is a local outfitter based in San Marcos, Texas. We offer a variety of guided, all-inclusive trips on the Llano, San Marcos, Guadalupe, and other Central Texas Rivers.
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.
Spring-Fed Adventures is owned and operated by Dac Collins. A Native Texan, avid outdoorsman and experienced river guide, Dac is passionate about exploring the spring-fed waterways of Central Texas and sharing this experience with others.
Dac's guiding experience includes 5 seasons working in the Alaska Bush, where he led 6- to 10-day fishing trips on remote, fly-in rivers. His experience as a fly-fishing instructor and whitewater raft guide rounds out this unique skill set. Dac is trained in Swiftwater Rescue and he is a certified Wilderness First Responder. He is also certified by the American Canoe Association as a Level 2 Canoe and Kayak Instructor.
