Stranded

On your way back to the coast, the wind starts to whirl and the waves splash higher. The dark clouds block the sun while the rain pours down. Before you know it, the sun wakes you up and you find yourself on a desert island with a broken boat by your side. What will you do?

Families are invited to get rescued by creating flotation devices, making signal flag coasters, writing unique messages in a bottle, and participating in a special activity with the Coast Guard Auxiliary!

Location Houston Maritime Museum
Free admission to the museum.
