Dukes Dock is a dock on the River Mersey, England, and part of the Port of Liverpool. It is in the southern dock system, connected to Salthouse Dock and Wapping Dock to the east. The Albert Dock is located immediately north, although not directly accessible by water.
The dock closed in 1972 and was partly filled in. Direct river access to the west is no longer provided, with the only remains of the river entrance being markings on the dock wall.
The water depth varies from around 6 feet up to 20 feet. The dock is sometimes used by sport scuba divers. Its water is clear and it has much underwater sealife. This section of the docks is owned and maintained by British Waterways. They have licensed water balling on the dock.
