This day the ship was in its slip looking magnificent and majestic. It was alone in the small inner harbor port. It was green. I couldn't see a name on it. I can say however that it was huge and it's sails were large and quite impressive. I look forward to going back in Spring when hopefully we can see... More

My husband and I really enjoyed. You could visit two ships for $15 or spend $18 to see more. The tickets were even good for a year if you didn't get to see them all the same day! This is a must see tourist attraction!

For $15/person you can select 2 ships to visit - we chose the Constellation - the beautiful civil war era wooden pirate ship looking vessel, and the lighthouse, which actually turned out not to need a ticket. Wonderful historical experience complete with free audio equipment - interesting to see the difference rank brings - sailors sleep in hammocks with no... More

The facts: Site consists of 4 ships and a lighthouse. Lighthouse always free. Ship tickets can be purchased for 1, 2 or 4 ship visits. USS Constellation (tall ship) has had special events throughout the day and took the longest to see it all (several hours). The USS Torsk (sub) took the shortest time (1 hour max) to visit no...

Beautiful ships, you have to pay to get in and see them, or just walk the harbor. Fun for a quick visit before or after you eat.

My daughter and I visit all of the ships in the tour and it never got old or boring. The tall ship, US Sloop-of-War Constellation brought you to the days of old and what it must have been like to live and fight about her. We then visited the US Submarine Torsk, the US Coast Guard Cutter Taney, and the... More

The submarine and USS Constellation are filled with history and information. You can get tickets to visit 2 or 4 of the ships for a great price. They also offer student and senior pricing. The guides are helpful and the Constellation offers free listening devices with information. On the submarine you are allowed to touch and play with the switches... More
