Except for the fact that my hubby wandered off our son and I really enjoyed getting deep inside these ships and felt like modern Ancient Mariners!

We toured the Torsk submarine and the Constellation. First the Torsk- I am claustrophobic and was concerned about going on this ship. We left room between us and the party ahead, and asked the people behind not to crowd us, and I had no problem. I wouldn't want to stay in there too long, but it was doable! For the... More

a good opportunity to see up close some of the nautical history that makes up the inner harbor of Baltimore. suggest the tour of the submarine, if you or someone else in your party is claustrophobic, avoid the inside tour, it is tight and gives a fascinating insight to the sailors life aboard this metallic vessel. the clipper ship is...

This is a nice place to walk around. Go there for lunch, then take a walk. It's a good place for kids, too.

Arrived just in time to see the demonstration of the cannon. What a blast!!! Great experience touring the ship and listening to the audio tour. Interesting to see the different levels on the ship but watch your head. If you are claustrophobic stay on the upper levels. Well worth the time and money.

Fun to look back at history. Tours are available but a bit hot in August to actually take a tour. Just walking around the Inner Harbor checking out the shops were fun.

We wanted to get more information about what we were going to see before we spent our money to take the tour, but the attendant inside the Coast Guard ship was too busy listening to his music and looking at whatever was on his cell phone to give us any useful information. It was not until we got outside and... More

We had an amazing time. If you love the water & boats & history don't miss this stop. The beautiful wood, the smells all transported us back in time. While you're here purchase a ticket and take a boat trip of the harbor.
