What is the best beach in Galveston to take a bunch of eleven-year-olds for a couple of hours?

I'm taking a Girl Scout troop to an overnight event at the Space Center in Houston. We had originally planned a couple of days on Galveston Island as well. Our budget went bye-bye, so we cut out the extended trip, but the girls still desperately want to see the ocean. I am trying to convince them to go to Sylvan Beach Park, which is closer to the Space Center, and would be less of a hassle, but if we do end up in Galveston, what is the best beach to go to with the two hours of beach time we'll have available?
We won't be swimming. They will want to look for shells, build sand castles, wade in the ocean, and just mess around a bit. The possibility of dolphin sightings would be awesome and would lead to a lot of squealing (largely by me). We don't have much money to spare - we can pay for parking, but not much else. They're already disappointed about the shortened trip, I don't want them to be disappointed by their ocean experience too.
