Did you know the Buffalo Bayou Partnership offers guided tours of our city’s most important waterway? Book a seat on the Spirit of the Bayou for a cruise around Buffalo Bayou on a pontoon boat. There’s only room for 21 passengers so it’s a good idea to reserve now, especially if you have friends and family visiting.
Most tours depart on Saturdays in the morning with some early evening cruises as well. You can even charter the boat for your own private tour! However, a variety of themed tours are available catering to nature lovers and history buffs.
- History Tours: Go back in the day and learn about the founding of our city.
- Waugh Bat Colony Tours: View the emergence of Houston’s crew of Mexican freetail bats who dwell under the Waugh Drive Bridge.
- Port to Port History Tours: Learn why Houston is a major player in the shipping industry with an insider glimpse of the Houston Ship Channel.
- Buffalo Bayou Boat Tours: Look for graceful, snowy egrets on this 30-minute ride on the bayou.
