So far, I have found seven accessible tours in Galveston. Five of them are related in some way to ghosts. All are completely wheelchair accessible, or in my case, mobility-scooter accessible.
The Port of Galveston has developed itself steadily over the last 22 years, and is currently the fourth most popular cruise port in the US. With a new Royal Caribbean cruise terminal, Carnival Cruise Line’s third LNG-powered ship homeporting in Galveston, and Norwegian Cruise Line’s Prima stationed in Galveston, the port is firmly on track for a record year. That means there will be more demand for accessible excursions and tours.
