How would you like to head out to the beach and find crabs, tiny fish, shrimp, and maybe a seahorse in seaweed?

In seaweed?! Yup, seaweed is a floating ecosystem. This fact is just one of the things you’ll learn from marine biologists leading Galveston’s Bucket Brigade hosted by Artist Boat educational experiences. Every weekend, marine life experts dressed in bright orange shirts lead a 45-minute interpretive beach tour for visitors at three spots near the seawall, across the island.

On the east end of Galveston Island, you’ll find the Bucket Brigade at Stewart Beach. Mid-town Bucket Brigade Tours start at lifeguard stand #56 between 56th and 57th and Seawall Blvd. And on the west end of the island, Bucket Brigade Tours are at Pirates Beach.
