Buffalo Bayou Calendar of Events 

Waugh Drive Bat Colony Pontoon Boat Tours (2nd / 4th Friday of the month)
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. We will spend the evening viewing and learning more about these magnificent flying mammals that share the city with us.

Second Saturday Buffalo Bayou Boat Rides
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. 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. unless otherwise noted, including twilight tours, on website.

History Boat Tours (one Saturday per month, April thru October)
10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Canoe and Kayak Tours (one Saturday per month, January thru June)
Paddlers will venture into the lushness of the bayou, exploring the urban oasis of Houston. Join us for one of our unique afternoon-guided paddling trips.
