Buffalo Bayou Boat Tours
These 30-minute bayou cruises are a great way to spend the afternoon with your family. Escape from the city and enjoy the cool breeze as you glide along the bayou's waters. Look for graceful herons, jumping fish, and even the occasional alligator sunning on the bayou's banks.
Waugh Bridge Bat Colony Pontoon Boat Tours
Visit Houston's newly discovered Mexican Free-tailed Bat Colony! Guests on these tours will enjoy an amazing view of the bats' dusk emergence from our boats on the bayou's waters. Over 250,000 bats call Waugh Bridge home. You will spend the evening viewing and learning more about these magnificent flying mammals that share the city with us.
