Watching the big ships come and go is entertaining. The shipping schedule and information about the ships and their cargo can be had by grabbing a copy of the Duluth Shipping News available in front of the Lake Superior Marine Museum located in the shadow of the bridge.

The Musuem also has monitors showing departures and arrivals, plus some really neat exhibits on the history of shipping on the big lake.

algolake freighter
Every day during the shipping season, big freighters come through the shipping canal. Click here if you'd like to see a slide show of the AlgoLake as she came through the canal into the harbor.

Interested in seeing one of the big Lakers come through the shipping canal? Check the schedule & ship details here at this website.

Canal Park Aerial Lift Bridge


Here the Aerial Lift Bridge lifts to allow an excursion boat to pass through the canal to the inner harbor on its return from a cruise out on the big lake. The bridge is an equal opportunity worker, raising as promptly for a 25 foot pleasure sailboat as it does for a huge commercial 1000 foot Laker.
