We made an appointment to visit the Sea Turtle rescue facility at this site and were so happy with the experience. The informative volunteer staff are knowledgeable and helpful and share the miracle of sea turtle rescue in the Gulf. It was heaven to see the growing baby turtles, and learning about the ocean environment and how to best protect this vital resource.

So honored to meet in the ballroom of historic Fort Crockett. It was a pleasure to get away from Houston and enjoy the sea wall and the beach.

Great learning adventure for us all. Best of all to be able to see the turtles we love. The tour was fantastic and informative.

Grew up in Galveston but this was first time I visited since they put in sea turtle hatchery, not exactly a hatchery but more on line with fishery, at least the production area on the seawall. They also have a nice museum while waiting for the tour to start.

This is a very educational place to visit. They are doing research on saving sea turtles. The facility is secured- you can't just walk in.

I suggest you call for a tour. Fascinating what goes on there.
