Tour Description:

The Navigators tour provides a different view of Houston. The tour is roughly 2 hours and stretches approximately 6.18 miles from Briar Bend Park to Woodway Memorial Park. Briar Bend Park is one of the best boat launch sites on the Buffalo Bayou when the water height is up.  Besides all the great scenery and landscapes to see, you will have many twists and turns on the Buffalo Bayou. You will have a few small rapids and get to visit the Chimney Rock Bat Colony. The tour will end at Woodway Memorial Park. The tour will be on tandem (2 person) sit on top kayaks.
