Weddings By The Bay

Sea Star Base Galveston

Say 'I Do' by the Sea

Nothing compares to exchanging vows on the grounds of Sea Star Base Galveston. The enchanting open-air chapel overlooking our marinas on the sparkling waters of Offatt’s Bayou is a perfect setting for making lifetime memories.


Sea Star Base Galveston is situated on 10 acres and can offer unique experiences to enhance your wedding day like no other… on both water and land. Creative collaboration with you is what makes us extra special (after all, we are the 2020 recipients of the Galveston Daily News’ Reader’s Choice award for Best Venue in Galveston County!) We will offer you our list of preferred wedding planners and guide you with vendor options such as preferred caterers and linen services. 

When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled
because you knew it"

William Shakespeare


The most unique ending to your beautiful ceremony . . .a sail away into Offatt’s Bayou aboard one of our chartered vessels.  We can personalize this experience just for you!

Wedding Q & A

Yes, please schedule an appointment by using the module below.  Let us know a few available dates and times and we will get back with you.

We offer you a comprehensive list of professional wedding coordinators from which to choose as well as full-service all-inclusive wedding businesses for one-stop shopping.   All weddings with a ceremony must have a SSBG approved coordinator.  SSBG offers event space, table and chair set-up and break-downs, a commercial kitchen if contracting Commodore Hall and suites for the bridal party the day-of when having both the ceremony and reception with SSBG.


Yes, but they must be approved by SSBG and follow specific guidelines in our commercial kitchen.

You will have exclusive access to the chapel during your ceremony, and the reception hall during your rental period. Since we are a nonprofit, high-adventure organization, we often have multiple events going on throughout the week and weekends. However, be assured that the chapel and reception are reserved exclusively for you, and only you, during your special day.
