Hi Charles,

I know just about everything there is to know about the Galveston port, except how to get there from the airport. We always drive, so I have never had to fly. I have heard others say that it was cheaper to rent a car. You might look into that. If you have any other questions about the port, let me know.

I'm looking for something else but I noticed your post because I live in Houston and used to live in Galveston. The answer to your question is that Im sure there's special transportation from each of our airports, i.e. Hobby and Houston Intercontinental (now called George Bush). Tourism is very important in this area and pretty well organized. I expect you've probably gotten some info from your cruise ship. If you called the airports themselves I'll bet they could tell. Let me know if there's anything I can do for you here in town.

Best regards,
Art Williams

Check out www.Galveston.com

You should find the information you are seeking on their web site.

FYI. Hobby airport is about a 45 min. drive from Galveston, Bush airport is about 1 1/2 hour drive, all depending on time of day and traffic. Special events in Galveston such as "Dickens on the Strand" or " Madi Gras" can impact the traffic on I 45S. Also there is a new causeway under construction and the old causeway has one lane closed leaving two lanes inbound and outbound.

Galveston Limo is what most people on the Chit Chat Board has taken. You can book transfers from the cruise line itself as well. It is a long drive of 45 minutes from Hobby and over an hour form BUSH airport. Debbie
