Baltimore is Maryland’s largest and most important port city. Rich in history, Baltimore is home to dozens of historic sites and other landmarks.
Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is famous for its National Aquarium, tall ships, architecture, landmarks, museums, historical buildings, public parks, food, art, and other attractions.
The port of Baltimore includes the lower Patapsco River, Curtis Bay, and the city’s eastern border with the Chesapeake Bay. Baltimore’s modern commercial shipping infrastructure and skilled workforce are among the most efficient in the nation.
Container ships and other large vessels reach Baltimore from the south via the shipping channel or from the north via the C&D Canal. Large vessels are escorted to their berths by tugboats and other support vessels.
