Being a Cold War submariner, my wife suggested we go to Seawolf Park when we were in Galveston. I was glad that she did. Touring both the "skimmer" and diesel boat really took me back. Looking at the dive station, I know that I could...More

Exptraveller2014, thanks for visiting the American Undersea Warfare Center at Seawolf Park. It is a long road to Seawolf Park but well worth the drive! Most people can not say that they have been inside a US Navy submarine! It is a great adventure and...More

Marsha, Thank you for visiting the American Undersea Warfare Center at Seawolf Park. You are correct on the DE self-tour directions. Instead of re-doing current signage and painting, we have contracted for a new phone app to guide you through both the ship and sub,...More

Not an abundance of shade in the park and the ships themselves are not well ventilated or cooled. However, on a cooler day, this is a fun activity.More

Kimberly W., First, thank you for taking the time to visit us. Your review is important to us and we strive to improve our operations every day. The manager of Seawolf Park is an amazingly proactive person and works hard at having staff patrol for issues like those you describe. As the new Exec Dir of the American Undersea Warfare Center (the two WWII ships on display), I am also dedicated to preserving our heritage, yet providing an updated experience for our customers. We hope you will come back and give the Seawolf Park experience another chance and bring a fishing pole!
