There are four historic ships in the Baltimore Harbor - the Taney (a WWII-era Coast Guard ship), the Torsk (a WWII-era submarine), the Constellation (a 19th Century frigate) and a lighthouse ship. You can buy tickets to any number you want to see - the maximum cost is $18 for all four, with discounts for children and seniors. They allow... More

Visited with my family. We saw all four ships and everyone from 3 to 68 enjoyed them. My favorites were the Torsk and Constellation. The area around the ships is nice and picturesque and it has lots of chain shops and restaurants.

We saw the ships on the harbor and decided to check them out. Really happy that we did because they were all very interesting. We got a pass to go see all of them. My favorite was the submarine. There is great information provided and audio tours if you want to get more information. My husband and I had a... More

I only bought ticket to tour two ships but the interactive narration On the Constellation was very good and has to stories one for adults and one for children. I did not have time for all 3. Submarine I would not recommend for small children is very hard to navigate Low ceilings and cramped .

From the Constellation, a Civil War brig, to a fireboat to a WW2 submarine, the Torsk, spend an afternoon clambering ladders on these ships.

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.
