    Marine Biologists do not sleep in on Saturdays!

    Join us on Saturday, June 10th for a marine biology tour aboard a 50' catamaran! The tour leaves from the Texas Seaport Museum (Pier 21 in Galveston), starts at 10:00 AM and lasts approximately 90 minutes. Check-in is required 30 minutes in advance (9:30 AM), so plan your commute accordingly from wherever you may be traveling!

    Tickets are $22.00 per person, including fees.

    All the details are on the the Galveston Historical Foundation's website. On this page, there is a link to RSVP, which takes you to a different site (Eventbrite) to purchase tickets. Please post in this thread when you've purchased your tickets.

    I've been advised by a tour coordinator that tickets sell out closer to the tour date, so don't procrastinate!

    I decided to include this text from the Eventbrite landing page:
    PLEASE CHECK IN 30 MINUTES BEFORE TOUR DEPARTS

    Tickets are non-refundable, but we will gladly transfer your tickets to another available date if necessary. Email elissa@galvestonhistory.org at least three days in advance to change tickets. In case of severe weather, GHF may cancel tours and refund ticket purchases.​

    We shall have achieved marine biologist amateur status by around noon. There is much more to see and do at the Texas Seaport Museum, and there will be a lot of daytime left to spread CHUM all over town. Post on this thread if you have suggestions for lunch or other activities to do in Galveston for the afternoon.

    ReefHound and I purchased our tickets. We're considering ditching work early on Friday and hotel-ing someplace nearer to Pier 21 than NW Houston; and where there is something fun to do on Friday night.

    Let me check at home this evening. I get off work at noon Friday so an overnight in Galveston is a possibility.

    ReefHound and I booked a room at the Rodeway Inn on Broadway for Friday night. It will suit us just fine - and might bring back fun memories of TrashFest :). Rooms on the island are getting scarce and a little pricey, IMO. No plans to stay over Saturday night right now.
    -
    Post your plans on this thread and any thoughts you have about what to do after the tour on Saturday!

    Just bought our tickets(2). I also booked the Rodeway. Would have preferred the beachfront but its all too expensive.
