I love going on all the ships in the inner harbor. We spent hours doing this. The people are fun and nice. Leave plenty of time to look around and ask the employees questions! Check for special promotions. Practically speaking, these are all located within easy, flat walking distance, and are basically next to the aquarium (which is an absolute... More

I was disappointed the tall ship wasn't there (currently in maintenance in a dry dock), but the light ship/submarine/cutter tours were good. The submarine tour would've been much better if it had included the CONNING tower, but the boat was in good condition and my 3 year old LOVED it.

These are really big ships with a lot of history behind them if you use the water taxi they will give you coupons for the ships so check the water taxes before buying tickets.

USS Torsk is a submarine that looks so cool, but was closed so we just saw it from the outside and the Chesapeke too. The temps were frigid about 9 degrees so we walked around quickly. Will definitely return in better weather to explore more

Really enjoyed the history of the ships. The light ship was great and informative. I enjoyed the submarine the best. I really respect how they lived and fought for our country While on board a sub.

Were first in line on Sunday morning to visit Constellation. It has been painstakingly restored and is a must see for history, warship, and sailing buffs. Whereas one can tour only the main or two decks of most ships of this type, all decks are open (no wheel chair access it would spoil the experience). Trip is self guided, easy... More

You can buy the individual tickets or the tickets for multiple ships, depending on what you wish to do for the day. Buying the multi-pass will definitely save you money and is highly recommended. You can walk to all of the included ships/subs without needing a taxi or the having to relocate your car. I chose the mult-ship package and... More

You can buy a multi ship entry pass which is very reasonable. There was a cannon firing on the USS Conseltation. They also offer an auditory tour guide. Lots of displays and explanation of each ship's role in history. Great fun.

The USS Constitution is a worthwhile visit back in time. See how the sailors slept, how the term "going to the head" came about, how cannon balls were stored and many other interesting facts.

You can purchase a ticket for all of the ships, or a single ship ticket if your time is short. Buying the full tour ticket is a definite savings, however. The ships are chock full of history and are presented very well. You could easily spend an hour aboard each ship. If you have little ones, be aware that strollers... More
