Watch 250,000 Mexican Free-Tailed Bats Emerge From Beneath Texas’ Waugh Drive Bridge With A Spirit Of The Bayou Boat Tour

Everyone knows about the iconic Congress Avenue Bridge bats in Austin, but it’s a lesser-known fact that downtown Houston boasts a colony of similar size. Spirit of the Bayou, a pontoon tour boat that cruises the historic Buffalo Bayou, takes you up close and personal with the fascinating creatures as they emerge from underneath the Waugh Drive Bridge. It’s an experience you’ll never forget!

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
