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.

You can see the submarine and destroyer, other than that the adjoining park was boring. They had a lot of damage to the building that was in the park from hurricane Ike.

toured the submarine and ship that were there. Interesting if you have never been on a submarine or a destroyer escort ship.

I like that the place was very clean, though a little expensive, there is usually pretty good fishing here. I go every time I visit Galveston.

We spent yesterday touring the USS Cavalla and USS Stewart. It was a self-guided tour. Both needed some renovations but were still great pieces of history. My little boy loved both! The prices were ok: $6 to park and $2 for ages 5-11/$5 for adults for the tour and sailor memorial. A portable potty was on site.

This is a great place to fish, just make sure you come early as it does get packed! Typically, you catch many trout, sometimes redfish and in the winter flounder are plentiful.

Ok so they charge you for everything but the bathroom, I think. 6.00 for car load, 6 per person to fish- don't recall the charge to see the sub. The place looks to be in a terrible state of disrepair! Building is actually falling in on itself and is chainlink fenced off. The fishing seemed ok- People around were catching... More
