Go Big Bend update
July 3, 2020
Due to a local spike in Covid-19 infections, BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK has closed completely again, after opening June 1 for the first 2 of 5 proposed phases to incrementally expand activities and access to the park. It is likely that once the local numbers drop, the Park will re-open in a similar phased approach. SEE MORE.
BOQUILLAS FERRY remains closed at least until July 22, and probably longer. GO BIG BEND is the US permittee to operate this unique border river crossing. SEE MORE
TOURS TO EL CARMEN may resume in October. Space is available November 5-8. SEE MORE
DUE TO COVID-19, guided day tours are cancelled indefinitely. We will offer those again when the Park has re-opened and operate under their guidelines. We are working on a plan to operate driving tours in separate vehicles using wireless head sets to communicate the interpretative message at a safe distance, eliminating risk of viral transmission. These headsets will enable us to take short walks with proper social distancing.
