Come spend an hour on a Bucket Brigade Interpretive Beach Tour, and learn about the creatures and features that make Galveston’s marine, and coastal ecosystems so special. Tours provide free hands-on exploration of questions such as “Why does the water change colors?” “How is seaweed a good thing?” and “How do I connect to the ocean?” This is educational and fun for ocean lovers of all ages. Check out the tours this summer, or beat the crowds and visit over Spring Break, or weekends in March, April, or May.
Tour dates are:
- March 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 25th, 26th, 27th
- April-May: Every Saturday and Sunday, except April 23rd-24th
- May 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th
Daily tour locations are at East Beach Park and Stewart Beach Park. Times are 9:30-10:30am, 10:30-11:30am, 11:30-12:30pm, 1:30-2:30pm, 2:30-3:30pm, and 3:30-4:30pm.

These tours are free to attend. Each tour caps at 20 participants, but with multiple tours each day, they welcome individuals and groups. Sign-up for tours is on location, but if your group would like to reserve a tour, e-mail the Bucket Brigade Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Artist Boat at (409)770-0722. This is a program of the Artist Boat and Galveston Park Board of Trustees.
