The story of the village of Erie and its role in building the fleet that won the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812 is bound up with the U.S. Brig Niagara.  The city and region have a rich maritime history from fishing to boat building to a port for ore, sand and gravel.  The port is on a natural bay formed by the peninsula called Presque Isle.  Erie's harbor entrance is deep which means easy access and requires no tugs.

The Port of Erie has fine facilities to offer cargo shippers on the Great Lakes and is positioned to serve industrial companies in the United States and Canada.

Besides the facilities and services offered to business and industry, the Port of Erie is proud to welcome residents and visitors to enjoy the beauty of Lake Erie's and Presque Isle Bay's sparkling waters, family and recreational activities and beautiful sunsets.
