Amazing Guided Kayak Tours

BUFFALO BAYOU

Buffalo Bayou is a state designated paddling trail. The paddle trail is officially 26 miles long. However the entire bayou officially starts just west of Katy, Texas and flows approximately 53 miles east through the Port of Houston and Houston Ship Channel into Galveston Bay and onto the Gulf of Mexico. Ever since the Allen Brothers founded Houston in 1836, Buffalo Bayou has played a critical role in the evolution of the city. In addition, it has served as a major artery in the network of waterways flowing from west to east into Galveston Bay.
