NOTICE: This tour will be departing from Championship Park (1001 Wood Street, Houston, Texas, 77002)
Learn more about these thousands of magnificent Mexican free-tailed bats that share the city with us! Led by a “bat girl” docent, guests will enjoy an amazing view of the bats’ dusk emergence from the Waugh Drive Bridge on Buffalo Bayou.
Time: Dusk – Boat departs 45 minutes before sunset (1½ hour boat rides)
Cost: $30 per person (children under 4 are not permitted on boat tours)
Weather and water levels permitting. Reservations required.
Please meet at 1001 Wood Street. Wood Street is between San Jacinto and Main Street (around the corner from Allen’s Landing and the UHD main Campus). There is meter parking on Wood Street and under I-10. There is large parking lot at 325 Main Street, 77002 that is a 5-minute walk from the meeting location (visible on maps as Championship Park).
To access the area, you will need to go through the 1001 UHD parking lot (very small lot of approx. 10 spaces) and walk along the concrete trails (to your left) – you will see very large steps leading down to the water. Follow these steps to meet the boat at the bayou’s edge.
