Dated, but awesome. 8 year old son had a blast. Nice place for a picnic. Incredible view. Dogs allowed. Cheap and worth very penny!

Seawolf Park, is the home of the USS Cavalla submarine and the USS Stewart destroyer ship. You can tour both military vessels for $5 (each). I enjoyed learning about naval life during the second world war. Rooms, gadgets, knobs, and buttons were often labeled. There are some tight quarters in both and quite a few stairs, which may make some... More

I visited this park with my husband and my two sons. Both of my kids were amazed to see how small it is the submarine and they love the engine room. They also like the destroyer specially the deck with the guns. This park has a nice view of the Galveston Bay. If you are lucky you can see one... More

We went for the harbor tour that took off from the Elissa and so had a view of Seawolf Park. The guide gave us lots of history.

The ships could be maintained better. They are fun but not as nice as they could be. The flounder fishing is terrific in November when they are running.

Had a great day visiting Sea Wolff Park very hot but overall a very interesting visit . My kids couldn't believe that the men actually lived on the sub under the water for months at a time. This would be great in the fall or spring months when a lot cooler.!! We give a huge Salute to all the men... More

This park has a WWII sub and WWII destroyer ship that you can tour at your leisure. Parking for the area is $6 and $5 per person for tours. Audio tours are available, but I'm not sure of the cost. Everything is maintained by private funding. Different areas of the ships are marked with explanations for their intended use and... More

The kids will love this place for sure and there is an old Battleship made of concrete that was too heavy to float sticking out of the water there. I been going there since I was a kid and it was an awesome place to go!

The park has places to picnic, fish from piers and is handicapped accessible. the ship and submarine are actual vessels used by our military that have been retired from service and restored to a large degree. Lots of history that shows how the men lived during voyages and the ingenuity that was called upon to construct and operate the ships... More
