Drove over to Pelican Island to visit Seawolf Park, but the road was blocked off, with no explanation. Very disappointed that nothing in town indicated this park was closed. This was April 9, 2014.

we had a picnic in the park, then toured the submarine and the ship. The entrance fee to the park was minimal as well as the fee for the tours.My kids loved it! I suggest if you've never been, to check it out.

We toured the submarine and the destroyer escort with 3 of our grandchildren and their parents, and it was a very interesting outing for all age groups. The boys learnt about WW II, and it was eye opening for all of us, how claustrophobic it would be to have to live and work on a submarine for months at a... More

Parking is $6, and the tours of the sub & ship is $5/adult, and $2/child. However, the park also has a playground, a basketball court, and lots of room to run. There is a small pier as well, and you can watch the Galveston/Bolivar ferries and huge tanker ships criss-cross the bay.

Be prepared to do some crawling (submarine) to access all the places open to the public. This appeared to be a display that is being updated constantly. Found the living quarters on both vessels unreal; hard to imagine living in those cramped quarters for any length of time.

Love touring the sub and ship however, the quarantine building wasn't complete so we weren't able to tour the building. The price to get in was reasonable. Took lots of pictures and made a lot of memories.

Parking $6, Entry to the ship/sub $5/person. They have made almost everything in both the ship and the sub available to every guest which is very unusual. Lots of rooms and levels to see on both boats although I would have liked to see the lower decks on the shop which were not open to the public when we visited.... More

You can tour the USS Stewart and USS Cavalla for one low entry price. Both ships are very interesting and you get a nice view from the top decks of the USS Stewart. Bring walking shoes and wear something comfortable, because there is a lot of climbing stears and through small doors (on the sub).
