There are 2 airports servicing Houston:

George Bush Intercontinental (IAH) is located north of Houston and is approximately 70 miles from Moody Gardens.  It is the larger airport with the most airlines.

Houston Hobby (HOU) is located south of Houston and is approximately 38 miles from Moody Gardens.  Very limited carriers – mainly Southwest.Airlines.

There are currently 2 shuttle services from the airports to Galveston.  There will likely be more options as the cruise industry continues to ramp up.

Galveston Limousine ( is currently listing online specials at $50 R/T to HOU and $70 R/T to IAH.

Galveston Express ( is advertising “as low as $30”, but looks like there are many options that are aimed at servicing the cruise ships, so there will likely be a clearer picture as we move through the fall and winter months.
