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

I my eight year olds loved exploring the ship and the sub. It was so hot there that I actually burned my hand on the staircase. Wish there was more covered areas around the sub and ship for shade. But after running around the decks and having fun squeezing through the sub, we headed for the park at the end... More

It was nice to tour the old sub and ship. Really hot, but well worth dealing with the heat. It's a must see when visiting Galveston.

First off this place is off the beaten path down at the end of a long dead end road. If you enjoy military hardware and world war II history this is a must stop. Go early in the day if you can cause it get pretty toasty down below deck and even top side with all the metal heating up.... More

If you are a WWII history buff, you'll enjoy yourself. Since opening in 1971, there has been major changes at Seawolf Park. The USS Cavalla (the submarine) was half underwater when I first visited it as a kid, but now it is completely above ground. Some sections have been closed off over the years for safety reasons, but the majority... More

We visited on a Monday during the day last week of summer for most. In which was great we were only a few that were there.

We where impressed. Submarine was a blast, a little tight for our big guy but he made it through & loved it. The ship was good too. We would have liked to go all the way to the bottom, but was blocked off.
