Sam Houston Boat Tour

Come aboard for a one-of-a-kind, waterborne voyage that provides a unique and educational introduction to the Houston Ship Channel, home to one of the busiest and most diverse ports in the world. Port Houston’s free, public tour provides individuals and groups a fantastic opportunity to experience, first-hand, one of the region’s greatest economic contributors.

Update 5/2/2022: The health and safety of Port Houston visitors, employees, and the community remain our primary concern. As we continue to evaluate local trends related to COVID, and out of an abundance of caution, we are limiting capacity on all public and special tours until further notice. Our Captains and crew are carefully planning and making all necessary arrangements so our team can provide you with the safest possible experience. We look forward to seeing you aboard the M/V Sam Houston soon.

Reservations are required to board the Sam Houston Boat Tour. Reservations should be made online and will only be available at the first of each month for a 30-day period.
