You will not see wolves in this park, but you will see many interesting things in a beautiful Bay setting. Both large ships and pleasure boats enter and leave the Port of Galveston through this island basin, and you can watch it all from a three-story pavilion in the park. Beyond the beauty of the sea, the main attractions are the displays of military vessels. Take a peek at the World War II submarine, Cavalla, or the destroyer, USS Stewart, among others. Tours are available on request. Kids will enjoy the fishing pier and playground. See website for admission prices and more.
Had been there 20 years ago to fish, loved it. Now it is a nightmare. There is is sign right before the entrance, last place to turn around before entering park.For Gods sake Turn Around! Got to gate ask scruffy looking man how much," 6 bucks to park" says he. Give man 10 dollars." How"s fishing" says I"," 6 more bucks to fish says he" I am thinking, should have turned around. Only had 5 bucks left so we went on in. Got inside and the place was a mess, hurricane Ike had destroyed the place, but that was 2 years ago. No water, porta potties for restrooms, The nice big pavilion on the point, destroyed., looked like war zone. Six bucks for nothing. So to wrap this up, Cost: Outrageous $6 parking + Wife and I to fish $12 bucks + $10 to tour run down Sub and Escort = $28!!! Thank God it only cost me six bucks! To top it all off, its a county run park, shame on Galveston county for this obvious shake down. It is a good place to fish because there is very little public access to this area. I guess the high prices and and stupid rules keep the riff raff out. Signed Riff raff
A bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work, but please!

What a night.
What a way to treat repeat customers!
I went fishing at sea Wolf Park last night 06/18/09 11:45 pm Thursday
with my mom, my brother and first time to go 12 y nephew. Well it was a disaster.....
we tried to go at midnight when we paid and noticed it was 11.45 pm Thursday I told the lady what time did we had to get out of the park. She said 6 am, I said the reason we come this late was so we could stay until 8 am, and she said she was following rules and that if we would have waited 15 min by now 10 min we could stay till 6 sat? Well I requested a refund and was told they did not give refunds; she called the manager/security. He stated the same and said we could pay in the morning at 6:00 so we would not have to leave, that fired me up (inside of course) what do you mean pay? I'm not even inside the gate; where do I go to get a refund or try to get, one I asked. The manager gave an address, I said is there a #, I'm not from around here I need a # to find the place. By then he started to ignore me. I said I want to pay for a new night starting as 12: and work in the other refund in the morning he smirked. I fist told the manager I was not going to move the truck until I got a refund, he grabbed his phone and was calling for help, is said good call the cops and get a tow truck while your at it, this truck does not want to start. I got off to try to start the truck, open the hood, which was my mistake. I went over to the guard shack and was asking with the lady for a #, she was giving me the # and the manager walked up to me and said to move form the door, I said I'm talking to the lady, he insisted for me to get out of the way with a aggressive attitude, he could easily go in shack. I said well give me a receipt, the lady eventually gave me a receipt and I looked at it. it had 6+, 6+, 6+, 6+, 6+ 0C 30+ no date no "sea wolf park" any where, is told the manager, I will not get any refunds with this plain receipt I’m going to fish till 6:00 am Sat, what they wanted.
We drove in the park and unloaded the stuff, at least 4 cop cars; I don't how many cops there were. He asked me what happened, I told him the same story, He said if these people were in charge they would not be working night shift, I said they need to use commonsense. The cop said you’ll need to leave, I said well we won't be coming back here, you all live hear too and get indirectly funded as well. I packed up silently after that and went home.
My brother kept saying don’t argue with park personnel,
My mom said these people were trying to steel our money in front of us.
My nephew said you should have told them they lost a customer.
Which I did mentioned to them that I "was" repeat customer!

I was told that I would get a refund on the mail by John Mac Michal manager sea wolf park 409 7770-3196
He also stated that I me-st up everyone else, because the policies is that if someone gets in at 12 midnight , 1am , 2am ,3,am 4,am or 5 am they have to exit the park at 6 am or pay for the next day. That's right get in at 5am fish for one hour and have to leave or pay at 6:am the same day.
That he was making exceptions before for people coming in at after mind-night, but he would not anymore! Thanks to Me of course?.
Is there no better tracking system of the visitors so that everyone gets and equal amount of time for their money? Even if its 8 hours, or 24 hours.
I there a way to update policies so that misunderstandings don't happen.
I've toured historical ships before, but touring this sub was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. If you're a fan of war movies, your eyes will be opened as never before. The destroyer escort was also interesting. The ship was made to do one thing - sink enemy subs - which makes it very unique among other war ship tours.
Seawolf park has a fishing spot, a sand playground (not much of a playground) a party patio, and a little beach. I didn't enjoy myself too much here. I found it to be dingy and dirty. There was trash everywhere. Although My park experience was fairly negative, They did have mini ships that you can tour! The ships are very exciting and maintained beautifully! If your looking for a fishing spot this is the place to go, but if you want to take your kids somewhere, try stewart beach.
