Help Steer Us in the Right Direction...
Due to a serious arson incident,
Buffalo Bayou Partnership will be suspending pontoon boat tours until The Osprey can be replaced.

On Tuesday, July 6th at 2:00 am, the Houston Fire Department responded to a fire at BBP's Drennan Field Office. Two boats were impacted by the fire: The Osprey, our pontoon tour boat, was destroyed and the Bio-Vac, a boat used to clean trash and debris from the bayou, was damaged. Because the pontoon boat is an integral bayou educational tool, as well as a much-needed revenue source for Buffalo Bayou Partnership's operating budget, the organization hopes to replace the vessel as soon as possible. While The Osprey was insured, funds are needed to help cover the cost of the deductible, loss of income, and the new boat cost variance.
Many of our bayou friends have toured Buffalo Bayou on The Osprey in the past year. Each month hundreds of Houstonians and visitors enjoy history, bat, and private tours along Houston's historic waterway and most significant natural resource.
As little as $10 will help replace The Osprey.
We are deeply saddened by this loss and we appreciate your support and patience while we work to overcome this unfortunate setback.
