The Port to Port History Boat Tour is a 2-hour cruise east of downtown on Buffalo Bayou from Allen’s Landing to the Port of Houston Turning Basin.
In 1914 with the opening of the Houston Ship Channel and the modern Port of Houston, the section of Buffalo Bayou from the port’s turning basin to the foot of Main Street (now known as Allen’s Landing) was called the upper channel. Join bayou guide Andrew Groocock on a historical tour of the upper channel of Buffalo Bayou focusing on the historic significance of this industrial stretch and Houston, as you cruise the approximately seven miles from the old port of Houston to the new port of Houston.
Departure location: Allen’s Landing, 1001 Commerce St., Houston, TX 77002
Weather permitting. Reservations Required. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted on the pontoon boat.
