LOCATION & INFORMATION
From the organizer: The Port to Port History Tour is a 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. Very few Houstonians today get to experience the upper channel by boat which has a very different environment from that of the bayou west of downtown. Join bayou guide Andrew Groocock on a historical tour
