South Locust Point

South Locust Point​​



​When it's time to hit the road, no marine terminal gets you rolling quicker than South Locust Point.>

While all of the Port's general cargo terminals enjoy excellent highway access, South Locust Point has Interstate 95 - the "Main Street" of the East Coast - literally running past its front door.

In 1988, the MPA completed a major expansion of South Locust Point, doubling the size of the terminal to almost 80 acres. In 2005, MPA created a 300,000-foot paper shed and a 100,000-foot shed.

In 2006, the MPA proudly opened its new, dedicated 60,000-foot Cruise Ship terminal at the South Locust Point terminal. The structure used for the passenger terminal was formerly a paper-shed building situated on 14 acres of land with easy access from either side of I-95.

Cruise destinations include Bermuda, the Bahamas, the Western Caribbean, Canada and New England, with 81 total cruises in 2009 in addition to 92 total calls for 2010. Land packages are available for shopping and sightseeing in Baltimore's world-famous Inner Harbor (2.7 miles from the terminal) and Washington, D.C. (40 miles from the terminal).​
