The guides of the Buffalo Bayou Shuttle Service have taken many trips down the Buffalo Bayou and can advise or assist anyone looking for a fun experience.  They will point out beautiful sights as well as obstacles to navigate through.

Currently we have three tours available. We are in the process of scouting the western portions of the trail to determine future tours.

THE TOURS

Houston Skyline Tour
The Houston Skyline tour is one of the best ways to view downtown Houston. The tour is roughly 2.5 hours and stretches from Woodway Memorial Park to Sabine Street. You will navigate through the beautiful scenery and landscapes of Memorial Park and the Hogg Bird Sanctuary. The Buffalo Bayou will then open its arms to you as you enter into the Buffalo Bayou Park. Here you will view the Waugh Bridge Bat Colony, Eleanor Tinsley Park, and of course the highlight of the tour, the towering skyline of downtown Houston. Make sure you bring your camera as these are views few people get to see. You will then disembark at Sabine street, just east of the Sabine Street bridge. 

The Navigator's Tour
The Navigators tour is your Beginner-Intermediate Tour. The tour is roughly 2.5 hours and stretches from Briar Bend Park to Woodway Memorial Park. Briar Bend Park is one of the best boat launch sites on the Buffalo Bayou. Besides all the great scenery and landscapes to see, you will have many twists and turns on the Buffalo Bayou. There are also many fun challenging obstacles to test your ability to navigate your boat through. The tour will end at Woodway Memorial Park. Children are not allowed on this tour unless they are accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The Adventures Tour
The Adventures tour is both the Navigator's tour and the Houston Skyline tour combined. Your day will begin with the Navigator's Tour (see description above). We will then take a break at Woodway Memorial Park. A picnic table will be set up on the sand banks on the west side of the bayou. Pack yourself a great lunch as you will need the energy to move onto the next section of the tour which is the Houston Skyline Tour.  Children are not allowed on this tour unless they are accompanied by a parent or guardian.
