If you are a history buff and would like to see some WWII ships and a submarine this is a good place to visit. Also it has a fishing pier, and some days you can watch the dolphins play in the bay.

Staff at the front gate was super friendly and the place is very cheap. It cost $6.00 for parking and 6.00 to fish (we didn't tour the ships, but I believe they cost 5.00 to tour). The new pier is great and includes places to clean your fish. There are 2 areas with picnic tables and a small playground for... More

Seawolf Park is a good place to watch all the big ships come and go to the Port of Houston. But, the main building damaged during the last hurricane sits behind a chain link fence in total disrepair. It need to be removed and rebuilt.

I hadn't been to SeaWolf Park in many, many years. Needless to say, MANY improvements had been made. The staff at the front gate were very friendly and ready to answer ANY questions I may have had. The facilities were clean and properly maintained. This is a family friendly attraction .......

We were leaving the Galveston Island & stopped on the way to the ferry, My grandson loved being able to climb all over the ship & all through the submarine. Great park area for a picnic & to go fishing if you have your pole along.

My family visited the park after my son saw it as we were heading back to shore from a fishing excursion. It was very interesting to walk through the submarine and the ship. I feel like I have a much better idea of what the actual sailors lived and worked in at the time. I wish I would have purchased... More

We love history and ships, subs. It was only $16.00 to park and see everything. was a chilly day but did get to see Pelicans too. Go to the Visitor Center and you will get coupons for a lot of things in Galveston.

Nice fishing piers in a historic setting. On weekends, kids are playing on the nice playground equipment, families are picnicking on numerous tables, and lots of people are fishing. There's a bait shop, ruins from Hurricane Ike, and ships coming and going to the ship channel.

Sorry this has been closed since Ike as far as the actual building but can still use pier and playground . You can see it when riding the ferry. Not sure if under construction or ran out of funding. Maybe it needs a light house next time . Galveston had one in 1900s I believe, don't know where on Island.

The park itself is a gem. You're right on the peninsula and you can watch all of the ships and ferries go by. Lots of people fishing on the piers. Several picnic tables in the park. Also, the submarine and battle ship were great attractions to visit. Definitely worth the money.
