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.

We enjoyed a short visit exploring both the battle ship and submarine with our 11 and 12 year old kids. Good time, and not too expensive. About $20 for the whole family.

Pay for parking and tour, off the beaten path; need better signs, surrounded by water, great view of the water way. Ships were very warm but very neat to tour! The park was wonderful to walk around with picnic areas, grills, fishing, playground.

The visit to Seawolf Park was good, but the pavilion as damaged and they no longer allowed public access. The local Navy destroyer and submarine are good places to tour.

If you enjoy naval ships and submarines, this is the place to go. The submarine (USS Cavalla) was actually very interesting. It is berthed as a memorial to the 52 submarines lost by the US in WWII. We were able to go down into the main area's of the sub, viewing all the bunks, galley's, officers quarters, torpedo rooms, machinery,... More
