Buffalo Bayou Bat Colony Boat Tours

Visit Houston’s newly discovered Mexican Free-tailed Bat Colony!

Did you know that more than 250,000 bats call Waugh Bridge on Buffalo Bayou home?

The Buffalo Bayou Partnership offers boat tours of the bat colony on the second and fourth Fridays of each month, March through October. Guests on these tours will enjoy an amazing view from pontoon boats on the bayou’s waters as the bats emerge from under the bridge.  It is a fun and educational evening where you and your family can view and learn about these magnificent flying mammals that share the city with us.
