A must-see for any boater
Jan 18, 2015 by: BaliHaiH15 from Beach Haven, New Jersey
If you enjoy the sea, in any capacity, or if you own or wish you owned a boat, come see "the big girls" in Baltimore. You'll be amazed at the living conditions aboard these historic vessels. Baltimore seems to be a yachtsman's magnet and on any given summer day, there are hundreds of small, medium and large yachts in the Inner Harbor. The crown jewel is, of course the USS Constellation, as well it should be. Come ready to be impressed at the sacrifices our men and women made and make in the vigilance needed to protect this nation either thru the submarine service or the US Coast Guard. Baltimore is and will continue to be proud of its marine heritage.
Visit to three historic ships

We enjoyed the three ships very much. It would have been nice to have more, and more organised, information about them.
Never got on em because the line was too long

So crowded! We waited in line for an hour and still didn't get on the ships. Maybe it was the holiday, but wow, not worth the parking cost, then the walk through crowds, the heat, the pushing, shoving and all-around mood - for what didn't look like very much - at least from the distance.
Interesting for History Buffs

The ships were interesting to visit and all were unique in their history. USS Constellation - This one has the most room to walk around on the decks. A few of the ceilings on the lower decks are tight, but very doable. If you time it right, you can also be part of shooting off the cannon. They ask for volunteers, which most of the kids volunteer for, but then also asked several men to help as the cannon is very heavy. USCGC Taney - This was one of the best ones because of its history. It was docked in Pearl Harbor when it was attacked in 1941 and has a long history of being involved with many of the major wars the U.S. has been involved in. USS Torsk - The submarine is definitely not for anyone that is claustrophobic. It is very tight quarters and can be difficult to maneuver through the spaces. There are cool things to see inside the submarine especially if you haven't been in one before. Chesapeake - There's not a whole lot to see on the Chesapeake, but you might as well stop by while you're checking out the rest of them.
Very nice self guided tour!

While visiting Baltimore for the weekend recently we decided to check out the historic ships in the inner harbor area. Admission was $14.00 for adults and $6.00 for the kids. Constellation is not currently there but the other three are very interesting on their own. My kids especially enjoyed the submarine "Torsk" although I wouldn't recommend it for anyone of limited mobility! The hatches are small and require some dexterity to get through. All the ships are filled with interesting Info throughout especially the Coast Guard ship "Taney" which has a remarkable history.
