My First Kayak Experience on Buffalo Bayou

After years of being envious of kayakers on the bayou, I finally set out to cross “Kayak Buffalo Bayou” off of my bucket list, and it sure wasn’t easy. 

I started by doing some research on kayak rentals in Houston. It’s easy to discovery Bayou City Adventures, however, they aren’t in operation! Unfortunately, it seems that Houston doesn’t have a rental kayak business that operates consistently out of Buffalo Bayou. This was a pretty big bummer, and I hope Houston can fix this and make kayaking more accessible for people. 

Instead, I did some research for kayaks. I first went to one of my favorite clients, Academy Sports + Outdoors, and looked for a good bayou cruiser. I ended up going with an inflatable kayak because I’m limited on space at my home. Many people are sketched out to kayak the bayou, and even more sketched out to have an inflatable kayak on the bayou. 

However, the day was beautiful. I saw many turtles, birds, and other wildlife. I was surrounded by nature including beautiful wild flowers and tall oak trees. 

This is my new favorite way of exploring Houston, all while catching a tan.
