Cancellation Policy: Buffalo Bayou Boat Tours and Twilight Tours are non-refundable. Cancellations must take place one week prior to your scheduled tour in order to receive a full refund. Since Buffalo Bayou is a natural waterway, changes in Houston’s weather, such as flooding and fast moving water, often affect our boat tours. If Buffalo Bayou Partnership cancels a trip for waterway- or weather-related reasons, you will have the option of rescheduling or receiving a full refund. BBP will do its best to provide notification of cancellation 3-4 hours prior to a scheduled trip, unless other arrangements have been made. You will be contacted via email or phone in the event of a cancellation.
