The easiest, safest launch in Galveston that I'd suggest is the State Park. There are three launch sites inside the park on the bay side. You can paddle around staying close to the launch, or go a little distance staying shallow and near the shoreline, or after you are confident you won't tip (turtle) you can cover some distance there. There are fish somewhere in the park area on most days assuming you want to fish, also.
Wear a life vest (PFD), and have a waterproof phone or VHF radio with you for safety. Make sure someone at home knows where you are going. These are the basic safety things we all (should) do.
