Know Before You Go
Open to the public only one day a year, on the Sunday in May closest to National Maritime Day. Some areas you may be able to wander on your own, but for the best views be sure to get a free guided tour.
Free Event; Free Parking; Rain or Shine. Pier 13 in Canton.
Vessels are NOT handicap accessible. Closed-toe shoes are required for boarding all vessels.
Free parking is available on Newgate Avenue, Newkirk Street and Leland Avenue. You can walk from there, or shuttle vans for visitors run to and from parking areas to the event site. Follow posted signs.
It’s not really near anything in this industrial area, but local food trucks may be on hand for Maritime Day.
Maritime Day exhibits on the pier nearby also include radio-controlled model ships, family-friendly activities, a variety of marine demonstrations, and other ships to see including tug boats, sailing ships, military boats, Coast Guard, and fire department boats.
