My boys (13 and 9) loved this park, as did the grown ups. It is outdoor, so favorable weather helps to really move about and see everything here. The Sub: You step down into the belly of the sub and walk it's entire length to get a glimpse of life and work aboard what amounts to be a 16 ft... More

This is a great Park, with history and things for the kids to learn, who knows maybe you will learn something too. It is a must if you are touring Galveston area.

I went to check this place out (fee to drive onto park) and it had a pier and people were lined up fishing and on the rock ledge too. I walked around and looked at water and waves then took tour of submarine and ship they have there (a second fee) and it was all ok. Not overly impressed but... More

Fishing for flounder was super exciting. I'm glad they're open 24 hours even in the Fall. Nice clean pier actually provided Filet tables. Good atmosphere nice fishermen and women. Secure environment. Cost is 6$ parking and 6$ per fisherman.

The submarine is worth a visit and this park is always kept nice and clean and is rarely crowded. Sea breeze keeps you cool as it seems to come from all angles when you are in this park.

We went to seawolf park in October to fish for flounder. (The season for flounder at galveston is Oct/Nov) Ihave never actually gone into the museum - there is a battleship and a submarine - but i did enjoy fishing near the pier. And of course - brought home some flounder. The only downside i can say about this place... More

My first time, since I can remember, aboard a sub! I was really excited. I love history, and have such respect for our military. I love being able to show my kids pieces of history - it's almost like going back in time. We enjoyed the playground out there as well, which allowed my girls to get some energy out.... More

We enjoyed our tour of the submarine the gentleman who guided our tour was very friendly and very educated on the history and service of the different subs, and very gladly a veteran so it made our tour really enjoyable. We were a little disappointed with our tour of the destroyer escort as a lot of the ship was completely... More

My first time aboard a sub! Memorable. I have such respect for submariners.I am impressed with what a battlecrew could accomplish in such a vessel.
