Join us on a free Bucket Brigade Interpretive Beach Tour and explore the creatures and features that make Galveston’s coastal and marine ecosystems so special! Tours last approximately one hour and involve hands-on activities to give visitors an appreciation for Galveston’s different but not “dirty” beaches. Bucket Brigade Tours explore questions such as Why is the water brown? How is Sargassum a good thing? and How do I connect to the ocean? 

Bucket Brigade Tours are scheduled to start at 9:30am, 10:30am, 11:30am, 1:30pm, 2:30pm and 3:30pm. Starting Memorial Day weekend tours will be offered on Saturdays at Stewart Beach (Beach Patrol Tower 6), East Beach (Tower 2), 53rd Street (Tower 53) and 61st Street (Tower 61). Sign up is on location, with a maximum of 20 participants per tour. If you have a larger group and would like to reserve a specific time, please contact the Bucket Brigade Coordinator at kguidroz@artistboat.org

Bucket Brigade is made possible thanks to the support of the Galveston Island Park Board of Trustees and a grant from the Texas Coastal Management Program through the Texas General Land Office.
