You'll need to purchase the tickets from a kiosk on the pier before you board any of the ships. There is an option to tour 2 ships, or all 4. My husband and I went for the 2, because we really only wanted to see...More

The various ships in he harbor offer much to the history and amibance of the harbor. Shops and eateries are all around but the significance of the harbor is truly relayed in the many ships in the water. Different eras different perspectives all combine to...More

I'm giving the historical ships a 3 star review because the area was disgusting. If Baltimore could get it together and pickup some trash out of the harbor and the street this would be an awesome area to visit. It's so sad that these boats...More

We watched the movie, The Hunt for Red October, shortly after our visit to the USS Torsk, and it really made that movie come alive for me. I got claustrophobic just walking through the tight quarters with very few people on board and not underwater....More

We did the complete package and thankfully we did it on a day the lighthouse was open. Check the lighthouse schedule if going in it is important to you. The ships were an interesting view into marine history.

There is a restored wooden ship - the Constellation, a submarine, and a coast guard ship to tour. They are interesting to tour and not expensive and definitely better than drifting through the chain stores and restaurants in the inner harbor.

Very interesting, and cool. Get the 4 ship pass so you can also tour the submarine. It took us probably 3 hours to tour all 4 ships. Definitely worth the price.

We toured 3 ships and a submarine. The tall ship was very cool to see, nearly all original. The submarine was very cool to see. Ian, the guide on the submarine was amazing! So knowledgeable and loves sharing his knowledge.

We took a self guided tour of one of the Tall Ships in the harbor. My husband sailed on a Tall Ship in England, so he was really happy to be able to explore this one.

You can see all the ships in the harbor without having to pay to see them unless you want to explore the inside of the ships. Otherwise they are right there on the harbor to see and take photos.

If you can find a spot on the street it's meters and that's the cheapest. There is also a small parking lot directly across from harbor place and not attached to a hotel. It's still expensive but not as bad as the hotel... More

We spent the most time on the oldest ship also. We took our time and spent 3 hours on 3 ships, skipping the sub. We had a great time but if you take your time, you could spend all day there. Well worth it though. Enjoyed... More
