They ships are very well kept up. There's a good number of stairs and tight quarters inside the ship.

If you like learning about what is was like on a submarine or a Navy ship this is great. I have an injured right knee and a left ankle just out of a cast and I was able to walk and climb all over the ship and sub and was amazed at how someone could live in such combined spaces... More

This was an interesting, unplanned stop. The submarine and the ship were very interesting to me as well as my grandkids. To see how men lived in such a tiny place was amazing!

Very nice attraction. Took the tour through the submarine and the ship. The A/C was working fine through the sub but was not on the ship. The tour through the ship was quite uncomfortable. Beautiful sites.

On a day trip to Galveston, I took my 8 year old twins to Seawolf Park to let them explore the submarine and destroyer escort. They both were reluctant to go, but after we finished walking through the boat and the ship, they had a good time. It is a self guided tour and the cost is very reasonable. It... More
