Seawolf Park is a good attraction for anyone who is interested in learning how Texas as a state was involved in WWII and includes a destroyer and submarine. No need to be a History fanatic to see the technology that was used on the destoyer and submarine as it was before the development of the modern computer. To walk through... More

The submarine while a tight fit for my 6ft+ teenager; was a very nice tour as it was air conditioned as it was a little hot and humid when we went; a storm was in process of blowing in; but hadn't made it to the island yet. The destroyer didn't have any of the air conditioning so the deeper into... More

We have been wanting to come to see the ship and sub for a while now and finally got an opportunity. Both are very insightful especially the sub. I have never been aboard one before and it was a real eye opener. It took about an hour to cover both. I could have stayed longer, but visiting at 1pm on... More

Walking through the submarine was an eye opener regarding the conditions our guys lived with during a very stressful time in their lives. It gives a new respect for the term 'service.' The destroyer was equally as interesting. I liked the memorials outside between the two ships, from the compass with listing of ships lost to the various memorial and... More

I took my two boys to see the World War II submarine, USS Cavalla. Beware if you're really fat or tall - the hatches and walkways inside the submarine are very tight, obviously designed with short people in mind. But the submarine was very very interesting! It's AMAZING to think that people actually lived down in that cramped space for... More

My boys had a blast 5 and 8. I had a very hard time with my 2 year old girl, really difficult to navigate with small children specially if u have to carry them up and down.

I have never posted a review on any site before. We brought our daughter's family to see the submarine and ship at SEA WOLF PARK. I am standing here waiting for them to finish their tours. A BIG DOWNER FOR ME. AND HENCE THE LOW SCORE. Otherwise great for everyone else.

My 10 year old son absolutely loved seeing the ship and submarine. He begged us to go back the next day. The price is reasonable...probably one of the cheapest attractions on the island. We would definitely visit again!

Not sure at first if we wanted to check out. I was overwhelmed by what our service men lived and worked in for our country. My family and I appreciated seeing the realism of what life must have been like for the veterans who served on these vessels. Very tight quarters, watch your step going through, not to sound mushy,... More

This was a nice park. We didn't visit the ships. It was December and it was cold. If we went back, I'd spend more time there.
