 Dockage Information - City Docking

If your coming into Baltimore's Inner Harbor for an afternoon there is no need to pay the high fees marinas might charge for a few hours dockage, the city has plenty of space to tie up along the waterfront and at the city docks.

Inner Harbor Dockmaster's phone number is 410-396-3174
Monitoring VHF Channel 68

Current 2010 City Docking Fees*
$20.00 for up to 5 hours
$1.50 / foot overnight
We have finger piers and bulkhead docking, no slips.

The city docks, across from the new Visitor's Center, and the waterfront area through Pier 5 offer limited slips and amenities and are offered on a first come first served basis.  All slips are clearly marked, never tie up to a red cleat.  Limited electric and water service is available.  There is a Pump Out Boat to service your sanitation needs.  Due to the large amount of large touring vessels we always recommend to call ahead.

Docking around the Inner Harbor's waterfront is simply beautiful, especially at night.  The views are amazing, there is plenty to see, and your right in the middle of all the tourist attractions.  If you choose to dock in front of the Light Street Pavilion you'll be in the busiest area of the Inner Harbor.  Prepare to get gawked at by the thousands of Griswalds (tourists) that will be walking right by your boat.

During the day the steady flow of water taxi's and other boat traffic can make things a little rough when docked, an extra fender or two and spring lines can keep the banging to a  minimum.  On weekends the traffic increases, as does the bumpy ride so be prepared.

Spending the night along the Inner Harbor waterfront is as safe as any marina in the Harbor.  Even though you're in the middle of Baltimore City and there are no security gates the area is a huge tourist attraction and heavily patrolled by the Police.

Don't forget to bring your dinghy, or bike, there is a lot to see and do and the attractions are spread all over the place.  If you don't have the means to get around yourself the water taxi has stops right near most attractions.
