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

The Seawolf park was very easy to get to. Our teenage son who loves history wanted to see this place so he chose it. The admission was reasonable. The submarine was truly an amazing site to see. We were able to go inside and look at everything at our on leisure. It was quiet warm being July. You might want... More

This is a great little place to visit if you are interested in history or anything military. There is an old submarine there, the U.S.S Cavalla also a Destroyer the U.S.S Stewert. Both of these you can walk around and see the interiors. Amazing how they were able to get around in the sub. It cost us $5 each to... More

If your in Galveston you need to check out sea wolf park. It didn't cost a ton of money. It was about 37 dollars for all five of us to tour both ships my kids loved being able to tour the inside and outside of the ship. It wasn't busy in the morning and we had a blast!!!

You must pay a vehicle entrance fee to get in to park. At the park you can fish, and explore the submarine and battelship, you must pay to access both, also have fishing license to fish , great place to BBQ and enjoy sunsets. Bring a ton of off spray!

Must pay to park, then pay to fish, and pay to tour ship and submarine. We only paid to park and tour, so no comments on the fishing. The tours are self guided, so take your time, and you get to see a lot more of the interior of the vessels than expected.

The park is nice. They keep the submarine very well maintained and it was a joy to look through. The ship is starting to show its age, but they are attempting to repair some of it. The sub is semi-air conditioned but not the ship.
