Galveston Water Adventures
For a boat ride like no other make sure your group visits Galveston Water Adventures during your trip, this seasonal boat tour company offering up thrilling jet boat rides, dolphin cruises, and adult sunset cruises.
Open each March through November, Galveston Water Adventures is located at Pier 21, in a kiosk behind Willie G's Restaurant.
Your group will love the Suntime Jet Boat Thrill Ride, a ride that gives the 'thrill and excitement of right-angle turns, accelerated speeds, and 'the hamilton spin'', the latter a maneuver that spins the boat 360 degrees on its axis, throwing a head-high wall of water into the air. This ride is meant for guests ages 4 and older and will likely get you wet, so consider bringing a change of clothes for this one. You will need to remove your shoes before boarding the boat, and the ride will last about 25 minutes.
Your group may also choose to take a Sunset Cruise, which is a 2-hour tour of Galveston Harbor aboard Cruise N Time, a twin-engine open-air tour boat. This tour is meant for guests over the age of 18. Any aged guest can enjoy the Dolphin Sightseeing Cruise, however, another Galveston Harbor tour that takes place aboard Cruise N Time. This tour is 1 hour long and allows guests the opportunity to see birds and other marine life that frequent the harbor, especially playful dolphins. Note that Galveston Water Adventures also provides private custom tour options for school and corporate groups.
