Become a Galveston Bay warrior and uncover life on and in the bay waters. Come join one of our weekly explorations of the connections between the mainland and our island paradise - Galveston Bay. Sandy beach access to the calm waters of this seafood nursery abound with life!

Meet our naturalist guides at the newly renovated Nature Center at 10:00 am for a brief orientation before heading to the water's edge. We'll explore for about 75 minutes.

Discover the salt marsh wetlands with a close-up look at the critters, grasses and birds that inhabit Galveston Bay. Tour activities include hands-on-seining, fiddler crab sightings and more under the guidance of FoGISP (Friends of Galveston Island State Park) volunteers.

What to bring:

  • Park permit on windshield of vehicle
  • Clothes & shoes to get wet (optional)
  • Water bottle
  • Binoculars (for great wildlife viewing)
  • Park map
