Houston needs it's bayous to be able to flow naturally and to be healthy. To have a healthy bayou you need to have a balanced ecosystem. Alligators are just one of the helpers that work to balance this delicate ecosystem that the Houston area relies on. All the animals that live in our area are needed. Part of the reason Houston will continue to flood is because the natural bayous and waterways no longer exist. Neighborhoods now sit where the water used to flow. We need to find a healthier balance to address our cities infrastructure problems and work with nature instead of against it. We will be back and operational in a week or two and will focus our cleaning efforts on Armand Bayou.Even wild native animals are not immune to mother nature's wrath.

Harvey-Before the Deluge

These hatchling alligators were seen by wildlife watchers one week before Hurricane Harvey on a Breakfast on the Bayou pontoon eco-tour. Texas gator nests begin to hatch in mid-August and all have hatched by Labor Day. A mere eight inches long at birth, they congregate under mom’s protective and watchful eye. They’re vulnerable to many types of predators and are also at risk from flood waters. None of these young have been seen since Harvey’s flood.

We will be closed Labor Day weekend. A lot of things have gone through our bayous during the floods. The flooding isn't even over yet. Before we open back up, we would like to see normal water levels and safe bacteria counts before putting anyone on the water. We will attempt to keep everyone updated on any changes. #pkrupdates ...

Our water level has started to recede as Harvey shifts back towards the gulf. We still expect rainfall today that will keep the bayous full. We hope that everyone is safe and your families are doing well. ... See MoreSee Less

Temporarily Closed! Hurricane Harvey came through the area as a tropical storm and rained on us for several days. We had more rain than we get in a normal year. Our docks were damaged and our office was inundated with water. We will reopen mid to late September to enjoy the rest of the fall on the water. ... See MoreSee Less

Houston is under a large flood event. I made a quick video to show you how you can check for flood levels in different parts of Houston. You can also check the amount of rainfall an area has received. Feel free to share so people can be aware of the levels and can make a plan. This weather will be here for a while. www.harriscountyfws.org/This is a quick video to show you how to check the water levels for flooding in the Houston area. At Pinky's Kayak Rental we need to keep an eye out for all ... ... See MoreSee Less

We are in an unprecedented weather event. It is 3am and the flood warnings, flash flood emergency, and tornado warnings continue. The storm has stopped in its tracks and is just sitting on top of us. Seabrook just collected almost 2 inches in 30 minutes. The entire Houston region is getting up to 5 inches an hour at times. People are stranded in areas and should not travel throughout Houston. All roads out of Seabrook and El Lago are impassable. Major roads throughout Houston are impassable or flooded. Cars are stranded on the interstates and frontage roads. People are stranded in homes across the region. Power is out to numerous families around the area and they are stuck. Most bayous and creeks are out of their banks and rising. Social media has hundreds of people reaching out for rescues. This should be taken seriously. I would anticipate Houston needing some help after this is all said and done. We have flash flood warnings with Tornado warnings on top of each other. It is only Sunday and they expect this to continue through Wednesday? Thank God we have kayaks and life jackets. We may need them to get out of town. ... See MoreSee Less

Turn around, don't drown.As Hurricane Harvey approaches, the Lakeview Police Department would like to remind everyone to be safe and stay off of the roads as much as possible. The continued rain may cause flooding within the neighborhoods of El Lago and Taylor Lake Village as well as in the immediate surrounding areas. Do not attempt to drive your vehicle through high water as it only endangers your life and the lives of those trying to help you. We will continue watching the weather and will update you if anything changes. Both cities of El Lago and Taylor Lake Village are currently on a "Voluntary Evacuation" status as of this time. ...
