Galveston as Home Port and Destination

Galveston as Home Port

Galveston is home port at least part of the year to several nice ships. It is a short drive down the freeway from Houston's William P Hobby airport and a bit longer of a drive, also down the same freeway from George Bush Intercontinental Airport, which shortly will have non-stop flights to all major areas of the world on a nearly daily basis.

Galveston has plenty of hotels and other venues and activities to keep you busy pre or post cruise. It is a great destination in its own right.


Galveston as Destination

Galveston is a Historic Island City. It was home to one of the largest immigration points into the United States in years of growing immigration to the USA. This has been a major port in Texas for decades.

Galveston is filled with Victorian architecture which has survived several major hurricanes. Speaking of hurricanes, Galveston is home, sadly, to the largest single loss of life for any recorded natural disaster in the USA with thousands washed to sea during the storm of 1900 (back before names were used).

Galveston has strong ties to the oil industry with helicopters leaving Galveston's airport for rigs far out in the Gulf of Mexico. Pelican Island is home to many of the offshore supply vessels and a shipyard or two who specialize in repairing oil exploration and production rigs.

There are tons of nice beach spots to visit while on the Island. Of course that brings with it plenty of bikini clad tourists and tourist shops to grab you souvenirs. This island is ready to host visitors year round with great food, friendly people, and a good infrastructure for hosting everyone.
