Spending time with my family creating lasting memories is the most important thing in the world to me. Kids grow up so fast, and it’s important to slow things down for a bit and enjoy some fun activities that your family and you will remember for the rest of your lives.
One way to create amazing memories is with a family fishing trip on a beautiful charter boat!
Wave Dancer Charters provides the top fishing experience in the Galveston area, and we are very accommodating when it comes to families. We even won the Lux Life Tourism and Travel Award for “Best Family-Oriented Charter” last year!
Galveston is also home to a ton of fun activities that you can enjoy when you aren’t on the boat. This means you can plan a full family vacation!
Below is more about the fishing in Galveston, other fun activities, and why you’ll want to hire Wave Dancer Charters for your upcoming fishing trip in Galveston, Texas…

Other Fun Galveston Activities
Galveston has so much going on—it’s really incredible!
Outside of fishing, you can spend more time outdoors soaking up the sun at a beautiful Galveston beach. Some of the top beaches in the area include East Beach, Porretto Beach, and Stewart Beach. These beaches have soft sand, clean water, and even fun activities the entire family can enjoy!
Since you’re with your family, you’ll also definitely need to check out both Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn Galveston.
Moody Gardens is home to an IMAX theater (which offers 4D movies!), a museum, an aquarium pyramid, rope courses, and more. There is also an amazing golf course that golfers of all levels can enjoy.
Right next door to Moody Gardens is a fun waterpark called Schlitterbahn Galveston. It has great slides and pools for visitors of all ages!
The last “must-do” item for your visit is to check out the restaurant at our marina after fishing. They do a wonderful “Catch and Cook.”
If you haven’t heard of “Catch and Cook,” it’s essentially where we clean the fillets for you after you catch your fish and you then take it to the restaurant for them to prepare it for you! You pick 2-3 sides and eat your fresh fish family style, while also enjoying some cold drinks to cool off after a long day of fishing.
Book Your Family Trip with Wave Dancer Charters
At Wave Dancer Charters, we offer an all-inclusive experience for the whole family. We provide you with not only a boat with a fantastic captain, but also rods and reels, baits/lures, tackle, ice for the fish, and water for when you get thirsty during the warmer months. Once we get back to the dock, we’ll help to clean the outstanding fish you caught and prep them for your trip home.
Our captains know all the top spots and what to look for when catching the most delicious and fun fish. We also ensure fishermen and women of all ages and levels of experience have a fun time while on the boat. No experience is necessary! All you have to worry about is showing up on time, and bringing your family, Texas Saltwater Fish License (day pass is okay), and all of your essentials for the day (sunscreen, food, camera, seasickness medication, etc.). If you would like a full list of what you should bring, let us know. If you want to bring beer that’s fine. Just make sure it is of the canned variety.
We look forward to taking your family out on the water, where you can create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.
