Ship watching From Our Bed and Breakfast in Duluth MN
Shipping season is an exciting time of year around here as it is when cargo ships from all over the world arrive and depart to and from Lake Superior Harbor. People from all over come to check out these impressive vessels en route to near and far away places. When looking at ships moving about the harbor, you’ll see two different kinds. Most of what you’ll see are “Lakers”. These bulk carriers were made for the Great Lakes and can be over 1,000 feet long! The other type of vessel is a “saltie” which are colorful ships that are made to head out through the St. Lawrence Seaway to the ocean.
From our bed and breakfast in Duluth MN, you will have the best possible vantage point from which to see ships arriving and departing. You can enjoy the solitude and privacy of our accommodations while getting to experience the excitement of the shipping season. Along with longships, you are sure to see sailboats, rowboats, jet skis, birds, and stunning sunrises and sunsets. There are many ways to ship watch from our bed and breakfast in Duluth MN.
