The 95-foot-long, 24-foot-wide M/V Sam Houston honors the Texas General and Congressman who was loved by many—and despised by some. Sightseeing tours depart from the Sam Houston Pavilion and pass cargo vessels, docking facilities, and the Turning Basin Terminal on a 90-minute cruise of the Houston Ship Channel. Tours are free, but reservations must be made in advance. Check the port's Web site for departure times and cancellations—for security reasons, trips may be canceled without prior notice.
