Take the time to visit the ships. They all have stories to tell. The Taney named after a judge, The sub that sank the last Japanize ship in WWII. A lightship that helped ships navigate the shores. USS Constellation, built in Baltimore. To find out more visit the ships

Don't miss the Inner Harbor, especially in the evening. Lots to see and do and eat. The lights of the city and boats reflect on the water. Beautiful.

I walked around in the area and looked at the ships from there. The tickets was a bit pricey for me to be able to board the ships. I would have loved to see more of them. The ships are close to each other with only a few minutes walk from each other. You can get very close to the... More

There were about 6 tall ships in port.... very cool! Most of the ships were available to tour, although we just enjoyed looking at them. The US Coast Guard ship was the largest but newest.

The other ships are thrown in. The restoration and staff of the Constellation are first rate. Any intelligent person with an interest in history will be bowed over by the quality of all involved. The other ships supplied varying degrees of interest. I will say the volunteer on the Light Ship is to be avoided as surly and unpleasant.

I was thrilled with the marine bands playing in the background, while I explored the tall ships. Thrilling patriotic moments.

I was at the Inner Harbor debating whether to visit the ships. I am not a ship lover. I wanted to go to Fort McHenry, but did not have time to get there. So, I bought a ticket ($18 for all 4 ships). I have to say it was very interesting. I used the self guided audio tours. They were... More

(i.e. 15 more or + sails ) Self narration ( FREE , and highly recommended ) . Go at your own pace . Timed demos ( including a " hand's on " ) Family friendly... More

I had to convince my husband to take the tour, but we both really enjoyed all the ships. You gain a lot of perspective as to how people lived on these ships - above warheads on the Torsk sub, and in hammocks on the Constellation, but also the historic significance of each of the ships... from Pearl Harbor all the...
