Lovely trip across from Galveston to a quieter area. Crossing is free and the on the 15 min journey we saw lots of interesting shipping, seabirds and dolphins. Take drinks and snacks or eat before you leave as there is very little in the way of food outlets for quite a distance.

Don't forget to plan a ride on the ferry when you go to Galveston. Take your vehicle or park and ride. Lots of fun for the family, great views, bird watching, and dolphin sightings. Remember to pack your patience, wait time is possible, check schedules.
